Luxembourg | The Classy

Luxembourg, situated in the centre of Europe, is a picturesque city with lots to do and see, from historical attractions and panoramic views to a great numbers of bars and restaurants to hang out. With more that four flights a day from London and less than 2 hrs away, Luxembourg is one of the best weekend getaways.

Things to do :

A visit to “Le Chemin de la Corniche”, is a must walk when visiting the city. The view is simply amazing!
