In order to escape the dreary Brussels weather, we rented a Jag and drove up to luxurious Luxembourg City! The LUX in Luxembourg is SPOT ON; when did I step into a JCrew catalog? Everyone was beautiful and impeccably dressed.
During the day we checked out the Vianden Castle, which was constructed between the 11th and 14th century, and did a quick self guided tour of the medieval castle.
For drinks, we frequented go ten which is a really cute after work bar (both indoor and outdoor space). It is a cocktail and gin bar serving Japanese and Thai tapas for lunch and dinner; the gin and tonic menu is a bit intimidating but the servers are really nice and will gladly walk you through it. It also gives a great view of the Palais Grand Ducale, official residence of the Grand Duke.
Luxemburg, as a whole, embraces American food but don’t expect to eat with your hands; they provide a knife and fork for your burgers. If you order a gin and tonic, you better know your tonics! I’ve never been in a city so obsessed with gin and tonics.
To get some exercise in, we hiked the Mullerthal Trail. The walking tour trail is roughly 7 miles around and takes about 3-4 hours so be sure to bring water. There are incredible rock formations, waterfalls and even a stone theatre in the woods. It’s such a surreal experience, you’ll feel like you’re in the Hobbit!
