A really old church, destroyed and then rebuilt by King Louis XIV himself. If you look, you can see the little blue Bourbon seal because this church combines Gothic, Roman, and French renaissance architecture. Not that I’m a nerd.
We got a little lost in the more residential area.
It’s not a carpet. That’s a Roman mosaic.
Another church. Not the same one. A good one though.
my summer home. JK it’s the Grand Duke’s office.
I stared at this for ages
A statue of a woman. Probably a queen.
We found a free museum and then we found little baby toys and shoes in the Roman art section
A street! I’m so good at pictures
The big bridge, it reminds me of Thomas the Tank Engine
There’s a piano under there. That’s all i know about this building.
A theatre with a cute little cafe
lol not sure what this is
Another statue of a woman. Perhaps the same woman, but there’s no way to be sure.
A staircase built in 1580 that I thought was functional but the museum alarms did not.
Micaela snapped an incredible shot of the moon through the wreath. About five minutes later, a professional photographer came and took the exact same photo.
The best restaurant in all of Luxembourg. Also one of the most expensive.
My American friend Chelsea’s chocolate cake from a patisserie called the Chocolate House. Nothing better.
Melusine waits by the shore, where every seven years she emerges from the river to have her revenge on a man for her lover’s betrayal.
Is it a disney land? Nope, just Luxembourg.
The oldest balcony in Luxembourg; the words read something like, “Welcome but don’t oppress us.” Luxembourg had been under a lot of different occupations for hundreds of years leading up to this.
I loved this view.
take adVANTAGE of this POINT of view
the sun! we were amazed
behind some rocks
a big cliff face to keep anyone from getting in
gorgeous river town
a church on the other side
this dog knows Luxembourgish
a bridge to the older parts
people were picnicking
we were up there!
Our tour guide Théo is the only guide to have ever fallen in the river
Those are the casements, we were just up there and walked all the way down here just for this picture.
and this one
and this one
a bridge over the river
we had to hike up this hill right after hiking down the cliff
the view was worth it
absolutely worth the walking
My Canadian friend Rose being nice and taking a picture for a stranger inside the casements
view from the casements
My Italian friend Silvia after escaping the casements
View from above the casements
more of a view
the church again
A statue of somebody on a horse! Really cool.
This is the city hall.
A real big church attached to a library. It was locked.
This is my Argentinian friend Micaela (pronounced Mih-ky-el-ah) with some kebab we picked up off the street.
This is the map they gave us. Very helpful.
This is an army barracks built in 1685 that they converted into a senior home. The big iron S’s are actually holding up the beams on the inside to keep them from collapsing.
This building had not been renovated yet, and they weren’t sure what it used to be. A mystery.
A big ol’ battery. Not the energizing kind.
Our amazing guide Théo pointing out how the other castles have been cut in half.
The view from on top of what used to be a huge reserve of gunpowder.
A water tower given by the Germans.
Everything is pretty here.
This is the gunpowder reserve. It wasn’t until after we left that Théo told us it used to explode a lot.
The video turned out to be more boring than I thought but the trip was absolutely one of the most amazing days of my life! Thank you, Luxembourg; if your apartments weren’t between 6,000 and 18,000 euros a month, I would never leave.
