This is a short walking tour of Luxembourg City. Luxembourg is a landlocked country bordered by Belgium, Germany, and France. Its culture , people, and languages are intertwined with its neighbors, making it a mixture of German and French cultures. This is because Luxembourg was alternately occupied by Germany and France every few years.
Here is an open-air markets (above), and a grocery store (below).
We had lunch in this restaurant – the La Boucherie.
Here come Debbie and Kathy up the spiral staircase to the upstairs seating.
The hamburgers were fantastic and they were not skimpy with the with the portions.
O.K., I had never seen this before – bottles of whiskey sold in blister packs!
This golden lady’s nickname is Gelle Fra. She was built as a monument of remembrance, a war memorial in the heart of Luxembourg. She was initially meant to commemorate the fallen soldiers of Luxembourg who volunteered in the French army in WWI. However, due to subsequent events, it also turned into a memorial against Nazi rule and now commemorates war victims in general.
The building to the left is a library, and straight ahead is a cathedral.
Our next two posts will be of the Reichsburg Castle in Cochem, Germany. It is a fun place to visit and you won’t want to miss it!
