Luxembourg City, Luxembourg — 4 nights

While Luxembourg City boasts the shiny headquarters of several European institutions and EU offices, it is also home to a beautiful old town that's designated as a World Heritage Site.
Explore Luxembourg City's surroundings by going to Vianden (Vianden Castle & Altstadt Vianden.), MNHM National Museum of Military History (in Diekirch) and Echternach (Abbey of Echternach & Peter und Paul Kirche). The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Casemates du Bock, appreciate the extensive heritage of Le Chemin de la Corniche, hike along Mullerthal Trail, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Luxembourg American Cemetery Memorial.

Discover how to plan a Luxembourg City trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Metz, France — 6 nights

Located at the confluence of the Moselle and the Seille rivers bordering Luxembourg and Germany, Metz has a cultural confluence as well with a merging of its French and German heritage and military traditions.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nancy (Parc de la Pepiniere, Place Stanislas, &more), Reims (Palais du Tau, Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Reims, &more) and Fraispertuis City (in Jeanmenil). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Œuvre de la cathédrale, see the interesting displays at Centre Pompidou-Metz, slough off your stress at Turkish baths, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix.

To see maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, use the Metz holiday app.

Green Heart of Europe
One of the three richest countries in the world, Luxembourg celebrates its wealth of natural and historical sites as well. Landlocked by Belgium, France, and Germany, this nation represents a blend of cultures, which are evident as you explore the nation's villages, outdoor attractions, and capital. If you prefer city living, discover Luxembourg City's old town, with World Heritage status. This small nation's rolling countryside is equally charming, offering castles and plenty of opportunity for recreation and leisure. Go for a bike ride, hike the country's mountainous region, or spend time at renowned vineyards.
