Best of Germany, Austria and
Switzerland in 14 days
Sept 23-Oct 8, 2010
Your first stop before joining the group
is picturesque Luxembourg City. Look
down from the block (rock) plateau into
the two narrow gorges which are at the
meeting point of two rivers. The city is
on two levels and is dotted with a
number of bridges and viaducts.
See evidence of previous inhabitants of the
city...Romans, Franks, Austrians(Hapsburgs),
Spanish, etc. The Spanish were pretty busy
building 37 turrets and 23 kilometers of
underground passways. An old fortress
surrounds the city. See statue detail on the left.
