With more than 110,000 inhabitants at the end of 2017 and more the 150 nationalities represented, Luxembourg city has now passed into a new phase. It has undoubtedly become an international meeting point, a sort of European junction. Perhaps unsurprising given its geographical position, it changed hands a number of times between major European powers of centuries past, and was ruled over at various points by the Holy Roman Emperors, House of Burgundy, the Habsburgs, kings of France and Spain, and eventually the Prussians. From the 16th century to the middle of the 19th century, it was one of the most fortified cities in the world.
The city is divided into 24 districts, mostly radiating out from the old city. These days, the old city centre and its fortifications are a UNESCO World Heritage site, and this area is one of the nicest places to take a stroll. There are numerous guided tours available, or you can grab a bike for a ride over the cobbles, and take in the heady mix of medieval and classical architecture. Gorgeous white and sandy coloured buildings with their distinctive slate grey roofs all cram under the shelter of the fortifications, punctuated by picturesque bridges, rivers, and a surprising amount of lush greenery.
It’s not just the city’s international reputation that is enjoying a new lease of life. Various projects around Luxembourg have caused certain buildings and sites to be re-utilised or re-purposed. For example, the striking Neumunster abbey. Despite originally being home to a Benedictine order of monks, it has served time as a prison at various points in its history, but since 2004 has been a major cultural centre, hosting hundreds of events for visitors across the globe.
