ENCHANTED // Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Besides being slightly devastated I didn’t get my passport stamped when I got off the bus, I have been completely swept away with Luxembourg. I have to admit, I was slightly apprehensive at first. I had not researched any of these cities I am staying at (I literally just looked at a map!) and every time I mentioned to someone I was travelling to Luxembourg I was usually greeted with a blank response.

When the bus first entered the city, I was a bit worried. All I could see was sky scrapers and business buildings. But this soon faded away when I made my way to the hostel, which is right by the old part of town.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESAfter checking in I decided to wander around around the city for a couple of hours. Munich and Frankfurt were both dead flat, so the sharp hills of Luxembourg were a bit of a shock to the system!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThese next photos were taken this morning at Fort Bas-Grünewald, the old remains of a fortress atop a hill behind the hostel. I initially went up last night without my camera, thinking it was just a few old walls, but was so intrigued by it that I went back up with camera this morning. It’s a mighty steep hill to get up there, but it is totally worth it.
