National Museum of Military History

This museum emerged from the Diekirch Historical Museum (opened in 1984), which was primarily dedicated to the "Battle of the Bulge" in Luxembourg in winter 1944/45. The key topic of the museum remains the balanced and objective historical representation of the military operations in the Ardennes from the german, american and civilian points of view. Over 3000 square meters of exhibition space and numerous lifesize impressive dioramas enable an insight of the dramatic and tragic situations that both, soldiers and civilians, were caught in. Special showrooms feature extensive collections of weapons, uniforms, military equipment of all kind, wheeled- and tracked vehicles, in addition to numerous personal soldier's belongings, photographs, documents and maps. The museum's core is doubtlessly the detailed diorama of the night-time Sauer river crossing at Diekirch on January 18th, 1945 by units of the 5th U.S. Infantry division. A second part at MNHM museum is dedicated to the history of Luxembourg's own armed forces since the creation of Luxembourg as a state, until present. A number of large-scale striking dioramas cover key aspects and periods of the post WWII Luxembourg army. Other sections are dedicated to Luxembourgers fighting in allied armies in both WWI, WWII, and during the Korean conflict.

The information, exhibits, artifacts, etc. contained within this museum are simply astonishing. I have a strong interest in history in general but was only able to appreciate the breadth and depth of the presentations here on an overall level. Regardless, I enjoyed my visit tremendously...MoreDear PamelaK O, Thank you for your excellent review. This gives us conviction that we had the right instinct and hope we'll still have it during our renovation.

Monumento al General Patton.

Reviewed By soinic - Lux.

The Patton memorial is well known by the Luxembourgers who attended the "Remembrance Day" ceremony/parade where the Lux.people paid respect to the US soldiers who fought for the liberation (1944) of the Gran Duchy of Luxembourg who was invaded and occupied in 1940 by German Nazi soldiers.
Luxembourg is a tiny but courageous country and was the only one who dared to proclame a general strike against the Nazi occupants ... for which the Lux. population paid a high price (executions and deportations to concentration camps!)
We remember....

Bourscheid Castle

Reviewed By Nanny1plus8 - Michigan

What a great find in this beautiful, small country of Luxembourg! We could see it up on the hill from our hotel and decided to visit it. It is well-preserved with continuing updates to keep it that way. There is a small snack shop and gift shop as well as electronic devices in many languages to use as you are touring at your own pace. And the views are spectacular!

Chateau de Vianden

Reviewed By KansasTravelingdad - kansas

Getting from the bus stop up the hill is a challenge but the castle is well worth the effort. Fantastic visitor information center, the castle itself was easier than the Porto Nigra in Trier to walk. The restoration is outstanding. We spent 2.5 hours. The gift shop has a great selection for adults and children. This is a do not miss stop.

Larochette Castle

Reviewed By anneroberts - Blackpool england

Lovely castle very well maintained to its current state. Fabulous views from different parts of the site. Very peaceful. It is a little uneven underfoot leading to various different levels. I am unsure that it would be easily accessible for people with walking disabilities...maybe allow enough time at a quiet part of the day and it would be manageable. The entrance cost is very low.
Lovely small village and beautiful church.

Mullerthal Trail

The Mullerthal Trail is the leading hiking track in the Mullerthal Region - Luxemburg's Little Switzerland. The Mullerthal Trail with more than 112 km is composed by 3 big tracks (Route 1, Route 2, Route 3).Route 1 and Route 2 pass through the City of Echternach which is largely known as the cultural and historic highlight of the region. The three routes each have their distinction:Besides the cultural highlights, Route 1 shows the typical landscape elements which are the rocks, Forests and pastures. Route 2 passes through the heart of Luxemburg's Little Switzerland and offers most spectacular rock formations. Route 3 features next to the rock formations many stream Valleys and romantic Castles. The routes are all connected but can also be hiked separately. The hikes are all quite individual as departures can be undertaken from the various localities. Furthermore, the Mullerthal Trail offers four (smaller) tracks, the ExtraTours, which can also be characterized as very attractive hiking tracks. They can be considered as departures as well as additional tours when all the other hikes have been undertaken already.The Mullerthal Trail and the ExtraTours have been signalled completely which gives you a great feeling of security and prevents from having bad surprises. The Mullerthal Trail is leading repeatedly to beautiful view points and to natural and cultural highlights. Walking on the Trail is thus an unforgettable experience for every one.Children will love the region as the wonderful rock formations want to be explored and climbed. Parents of smaller children though should take especially good care and watch their children as security barriers are not always guaranteed. Attention: the paths can not be undertaken with a pram or wheelchair.

We took the second route and did it on two separate days. First from Echternach to Berdorf via route E1 (the entrance is just next to the Echternach, Gare bus stop/car park) and second from Consdorf to Mullerthal and back to Consdorf (stop at Consdorf, Post bus stop and the entrance is a few minutes walk ahead)
If you're staying at the city centre, you can take bus 111 to either Consdorf, Berdorf or Echternach depending on which route you would like to take. I personally prefer the Consdorf-Mullerthal circuit as it passes through a very beautiful waterfall.

Beaufort Castles

Reviewed By ValAtLondon

Both Castles (Medieval and Renaissance) are worth visiting but I found the latter a unique experience. The castle was inhabited until recently by an old lady and the tour shows all the rooms with original furniture. The tour guide was lovely, very informative and passionate. Additionally, the tour ends with a taste of the liqueur they used to produce (the raspberry one is better than the blackcurrant one) ;)

this castle belongs to the "vallé des sept château". It's the only watercastle in Luxembourg (unfortunately there's actually no water surrounding the castle). No fee, ancient history.

All In Family Fun Center

Reviewed By Lassana T - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Situé au Nord du Luxembourg à Heiderscheid voilà un lieu de détente et de jeux qui ferait le bonheur des petits et grands. Cet établissement vous fera oublier les nombreuses journées sans soleil, l'air de jeux sous-abri situé au premier étage est assez grand et bien équipé. Les toboggans, escalades, trampolines ...jeux de boules contribueront à développer la motricité des tout petits et permet aussi de les socialiser. Les attractions sont gratuites jusqu'à 2 ans et au-delà le prix varie selon la tranche d'âge, mais reste cependant très accessible (comptez entre 5€ et 12€ max) si j'ai bonne mémoire. Il y a une possibilité de ce restaurer sur place. Les plus grands pourront profiter au rez-de-chaussée des jeux de billards et de bowling. Je valide cette attraction et vous le recommande vivement !

Chateau Esch-sur-Sure

Reviewed By Googly2010 - Tonbridge, United Kingdom

Esch made a nice spot for a lunchtime coffee: it is a lovely little village sitting in a horseshoe bend of the river, dominated by the ruins of the castle. It was so hot we didn't have the energy to climb up to the castle but enjoyed a little stroll by the river and in the small town. The church was delightul inside. Esch sits in a nice spot in the lovely scenery of Northern Luxembourg which pleasantly surprised us as we drove to Vianden and the Mosel. We may return!
