Luxembourg – City of Luxembourg: its Old Quarters and Fortifications

Throughout history, when people needed strong structures to protect their cities, towns, and other important areas, they built fortifications. These buildings, designed for the defense of territories in warfare were also used to solidify rule in a region during peacetime. Often built as part of castles, many ancient forts, some in ruins and some intact, are beautiful sites to visit.

We’ve collected some of the most beautiful forts in the world that deserve consideration on your travel bucket list. You’ll find them standing guard in Italy, Croatia, Scotland, Tyrol, Ukraine, Luxembourg, South Korea, Austria, Spain, India, and Oman. Check them out below.

1. EILEAN DONAN CASTLE — DORNIE, SCOTLAND

Eilean Donan, a mid-13th century fortified castle, is situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by majestic scenery. It is once of the most beautiful and important attractions in the Scottish Highlands.

There are four generations of the MacRae family past, present and future who are still the Constables of Eilean Donan Castle today.

Luxembourg – City of Luxembourg: its Old Quarters and Fortifications

Luxembourg, a country with less than 1 million people living in it, is a central hub in the European Union. Despite what you might think, there is a lot more to this small and mighty country than meets the eye.

From food and historic attractions to the kind and welcoming nature of the city’s residents, this European destination is a gem, one that is often overlooked when compared to other cities.

I recently spent a few days exploring all the city of Luxembourg has to offer, from food and drink to history and culture.

After arriving on Thursday evening, I checked into the Hotel Vauban, a cosy hotel right in the heart of the city centre on Place Guillaume II Square, a mere five-minute walk to the famous Grand Ducal Palace.

Luxembourg – City of Luxembourg: its Old Quarters and Fortifications

One of the things we love about Europe is the opportunity to visit multiple countries during a short span of time. We were in the xx part of Germany last June and Luxembourg was only 90 minutes away. We don’t turn down two country day trips and we didn’t really know that much about Luxembourg. Luxembourg City, its capital city, formerly known as the “Gibraltar of the North” seemed like the ideal place to explore for a few hours.

Luxembourg is a tiny country nestled between Germany, Belgium and France. It’s usually ranked high in wealth and wine consumption. We saw evidence of the wealth part when we spotted two expensive Tesla cars used as cabs. It is also one of the three headquarters of the European Union along with Brussels, Belgium and Strasbourg, France.
