Luxembourg City photography guide
Our contributors have added 18 photo spots to this Luxembourg City photo guide. Have you discovered an amazing new location in Luxembourg City?
Luxembourg City is the capital of Luxembourg, the country. It is a city that occupies clifftop plateaus and the Alzette river valley below, which led it to be nicknamed the "Gibraltar of the North".
The most interesting districts from a photographer's perspective are:
Ville Basse, the low city, found in the lower parts of the city surrounded by clifftops and hugging the Alzette river.
Ville Haute, the high city, which boasts most of Luxembourg's medieval architecture.
Kirchberg is the European Quarter, full of modernist architecture.
Clausen is an older part of town with its own character and charm, and some interesting viewpoints.

Luxembourg-Findel International Airport (LUX) is just a few kilometres outside Luxembourg City and very easily accessible from the city centre using bus numbers 29 and 16 which stop right outside. Luxembourg's national carrier is Luxair, which flies to many EU destinations. It is also a destination for other carriers such as Easyjet, Ryanair, British Airways, KLM, Swiss, Lufthansa, and many others.
Luxembourg can be reached by train from several other European capitals. For example, Paris is an hour away, Brussels is 3 hours.
With the exception of first class train travel, all public transport in the country of Luxembourg is free!
Getting around Luxembourg City is easy - there is an extensive bus network plus a rapid tram line connecting the train station with the European Quarter. And just because it's worth repeating - it's all free, even to tourists.
The Casemates Bock is a network of underground tunnels and the remains of a fort, built in the 18th century. It is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers remarkable views of the Grund area of the city.
