Last day of the trip…

…so we’re making it a good one. We had a lovely meal in Esch last night, which we’re particularly grateful for because so many restaurants have been closed at this time of year in the small villages we’ve visited in Luxembourg After each having a different 3-course set menu and feeling suitably full, we wandered...

Wandering around Esch-sur-Sûre

It’s our last full day of holiday today so we’ve spent it relaxing in Esch-sur-Sûre. Tomorrow, we drive back up to Dunkirk, ready to catch the ferry back to Dover on Sunday morning. Two weeks have flown by! The morning began with a lie in, then croissants and coffee for breakfast. Three ducks, who’d also... Continue Reading →

A day around Bourscheid

We’re staying in Esch-sur-Sûre drive for our last 2 nights in Luxembourg. On the way there, we decided to visit Bourscheid where there’s a (yet another) castle and lots of walking routes. Following Google Maps to a supermarket on the way, we had a minor drama in Diekirch. We saw the sign and turned into... Continue Reading →

Beaufort and Vianden

We left Berdorf today and started to move back north. After paying the bill, emptying the bins, toilet and waste tank and topping up the fresh water, we set off to Beaufort. Beaufort Castle was built in four phases between 1015 and 1650 and, therefore, has Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance features. Castles in Luxembourg have... Continue Reading →

Waterfall walk

These falls on the Black Ernz river are really pretty, surrounded by mossy green rocks, with an attractive stone bridge above. I found a hike that went past the falls and we took the bus to Consdorf,... Continue Reading →

Panorama cycle tour

We chose to do a bike tour today, downloading a 50 kilometre route from the website for the Müllerthal region, which really is excellent, with lots of suggestions for things to do. We started on top of a relatively high plateau at Berdorf, which meant we were going to finish with a big climb! The... Continue Reading →

Sandstone caves, clefts and cliffs

We’ve had a fabulous walk from the campsite today, exploring a trail leading through and around amazing rock formations in beautiful woods. It was only meant to be 4 kilometres long but ended being 6 or 7 with all the exploring we did, then 9 with a detour for something to eat in Berdorf. As... Continue Reading →

Luxembourg City

I think I might have a new favourite city. Luxembourg City is beautiful… so much to see and so many green spaces. Mind you we have been lucky to see it in glorious sunshine ☀️ Instead of writing about what we’ve seen, I’ve decided to include a larger than usual gallery of labelled images of...
