We will depart at 08:00 am from the city centre of Brussels, and travel to the city of luxury. On our way we will cross the Ardennes Forest to enter this small country. Enjoy the mesmerizing city of Luxembourg with an English-speaking guide, and discover why the historic walls of the city centre are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You will have 4 hours of free time for lunch after the guided tour to explore the city as you please. Our guides will recommend some of the best Luxembourgish food such as the best kuddelfleck, and can also pop into some of the best shops ever, since even though Luxembourg has the highest GDP they also have some of the best deals and bargains you can find.
We will start by discovering the Place d’Armes, a place full of life founded by a Spaniard in 1671. Surrounded by lots of street cafés and restaurants, it has become the place where the young and the old, the locals and the visitors meet. It is also named the “Parlour of the City”.
From there, we will go to a well-known part of the city: the Guillaume II Square. The square takes its name from William II, who ruled from 1840 to 1849. It’s the largest square in the city and is where the Luxembourg City Hall is located. We then continue to one of the most delightful areas of the city, Notre Dame Cathedral of Luxembourg. Built in 1621 by a Jesuit order and characterised by having several styles, it is definitely a place worth visiting.
We will continue walking until we get to the Royal Palace, originally built in the middle of the 16th century and then restored in the 18th century. If we are lucky, we will be able to see the royal guard of Luxembourg parading through its doors!
Our next stop will be the Claire Fontaine Square. Located near the Cathedral and the Government district, it was redesigned at the end of the eighties. The name of the square comes from the abbey of Clairefontaine. A monument in honour of Grand Duchess Charlotte (1896-1985) can be found on this square.
We will also discover Saint Michael’s Church. It is the oldest building in the city and has different styles due to the passing of time. Over the centuries the church was destroyed several times, but it has always been reconstructed and even extended.
We will stay in Luxembourg until 17:30 and then we will arrive back to Brussels at around 20h.
Thanks to its great position in the map, Brussels is a city that is very good to travel from if you want to discover the nearby cities such as Luxembourg. For this reason, in addition to the many activities we offer at Buendía Tours for you to enjoy Brussels, we also have an array of day trips for you to get to know its surroundings.
