Luxembourg City is the small, quaint capital of the tiny European country of Luxembourg nestled between the borders of France and Germany. Escape for just a day or unwind for longer in this enchanting little town.
How to Get to Luxembourg City
I was a few hours in to a 23-hour layover in Frankfurt when I decided to hop on the train at the airport's international rail station to Luxembourg Hbf (which stands for Hauptbahnhof or Central Station). The trip was approximately 3.5 hours each way, with one change over in Koblenz. I purchased my tickets online from Deutsche Bahn for 38 euros round-trip and sat with my face glued to the window of the top of the double-decker train as we zipped along the Rhine River.
How to Get Around Luxembourg City
Walk! Luxembourg City is pretty small and you’ll find all the best spots by wandering through the crooked streets and just getting lost.

Where to Eat in Luxembourg City
I stopped in at the Vapiano across the road from the train station. Having experienced Vapiano in London, I was keen to have it again here. When you first walk in, each guest is given a meal card to use for the evening. Whenever you buy a drink or order food, you swipe the card at various locations around the restaurant. At the end of the evening, you return your card to the front desk and pay off your balance. It’s a delicious way to enjoy fresh pasta with a communal and inviting atmosphere.
