Luxembourg

Postcard pretty city.

The beauty of this city is unprecedented. The greenery/forestry against the stone buildings/walls is inspirational. It’s definitely a small city but for 3 or 4 days, a lot of enjoyment can be had. There is a bit of a language barrier unless you speak Luxembourgish, French or German, but given the right attitude, that can be more fun than problematic. Plenty of shops to spend your hard earned money and plenty of great restaurants to enjoy while recuperating from your days adventure. A definite must see is the American cemetery where General Patton is buried. Everyone was helpful or maybe they just felt sorry for us, but I’d like to think it’s because they have a more genteel manner than most.

Luxembourg city has significant height differences. To overcome these, there are two elevators in the high city. In addition, there's a funicular between Pfaffenthal and Kirchberg. Of course, we took the elevator down and walked up. Not always the sharpest tool in the toolbox.
