Luxembourg City
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.
