Part of a UNESCO World Heritage area, Luxembourg's Old Town district is where remnants of ancient fortresses meet gems of contemporary architecture. Brand new high-tech buildings coexist with historic structures that stand as reminders of a storied past.
La Corniche faces the Neumünster Abbey, which takes center stage, magnificent, in front of the cliffs where the bunkers, a vast subterranean military network classed as part of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, were dug. As well as the military galleries, the Bock slope provides two superb panoramas. From the Grund, you can enjoy a last view over the abbey, and from Pfaffental you can make out the superb ancient quarter, dominated by the buildings situated at the entrance to Kirchberg. Continuing on its route, you can leave the area of Grund behind to reach the Pfaffenthal and its elevator, which will provide you with a unique, panoramic view over the lush valley of Alzette.
Renowned for its banking center, Luxembourg's business districts are prime examples of a diverse and bustling commercial hub that has much more to offer than financial concerns. Kirchberg also has a cultural area that includes the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art, the LuxExpo Conference Center, and the Grande-Duchesse Joséphine-Charlotte Concert Hall known as Philharmonie Luxembourg.
Under the Montée de Clausen, the top of Count Siegfried’s promontory once stood as a symbol of power. The Bock Casemates now sits as a picturesque and lofty place honeycombed with stone tunnels and passageways adored by children!
Le 18 serves up a menu of cocktails and rare spirits meant to be sipped to the beat of jazz music playing in the background. Mixology aficionados will savor the selection of top-shelf rums with French, English and Hispanic influences that rub elbows with outstanding whiskeys and a list of vintage and modern cocktails with gourmet tapas on the side. The spot's interior design was done by Tristan Auer. Made to feel like a stage set, the bar overlooks the dining room. Between the layout, the unfinished look of the materials and the dim lighting, the Le 18 bar’s contemporary elegance is the perfect place to unwind.
