You'll find plenty of places to visit near Luxembourg City: MNHM Musee National d'Histoire Militaire (in Diekirch), Chateau de Vianden (in Vianden) and Mullerthal Trail (in Mullerthal). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Le Chemin de la Corniche, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Parc Merveilleux, step into the grandiose world of Palace of the Grand Dukes (Palais Grand-Ducal), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Notre Dame Cathedral (Cathedrale Notre Dame).

You can plan Luxembourg City trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
