1. Explore the Old Quarters

Like many cities with a storied history, the City of Luxembourg offers a sleek, bustling, modern metropolis and a much older area that's full of notable buildings from the country's past. The original city in the 10th century was a simple fort under the protection of a stone fortification. Luxembourg's strategic location between France and the rest of Eastern Europe helped turn the ancient capital into a powerful military structure. The remaining buildings, such as several military structures are now in public parks and protected as a World Heritage Site.
