HIGHLIGHTS

 

Vianden   |   Grevenmacher   |   Luxembourg City   |   Trier   |   Echernach

 

The grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a country sharing the languages and culture of neighbouring France, Germany and Belgium.  It is a beautiful destination during any season and well worth a visit.

 

Despite being one of the smallest sovereign states in Europe, the country is bursting with history, culture and picturesque scenery.  The Ardennes countryside boasts forests, rivers, valley, vineyards and quaint little villages, fine food and drink are everywhere including special beers still brewed by Trappist monks deep in the Ardennes Forests.  Historically, the famous Battle of Bulge took place in this very region on the 18th December 1944 and you will find many monuments dedicated to this battle located throughout the area.

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home pick-up, join your tour coach and travel to Dover for our crossing to Calais.  After disembarking we continue through France and enjoy the picturesque Belgian Ardennes as we travel through the low countries to our hotel.  Welcome drink awaits us whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we explore Vianden and learn all about it on a guided walking tour.  We begin with a walk down to the River Our to see one of Luxembourg’s most photogenic scenes, towering over the town and river is the imposing Vianden Castle dating from the 10th century the castle fell into ruins in the 18th century.  Today it is fully restored and it is one of Luxembourg’s most visited attractions, being based in the town you will get a peaceful morning visit.  The cobbled Grand Rue with its attractive houses and little shops takes a meandering route up to the castle gates and in the summer months a chairlift takes you high above the castle for spectacular views. 

 

This afternoon we drive to Grevenmacher on the Moselle to visit the famous Caves, Bernard-Massard, the country’s main producer of traditional sparkling wines, here they use the ‘traditional Luxembourg’ method to create their famous wines and you get to enjoy a tour and three glasses of wine.

 

DAY THREE

Today we travel into Luxembourg City to explore the capital of the Grand Duchy, starting with a guided tour; the city was built amid deep gorges cut by the Alzette & Petrusse rivers.  For impressive views of the city take a walk along the Chemin de Corniche promenade situated high on the ramparts of the medieval fortifications.  Perhaps visit the vast Bock Casemates tunnel network that encompasses a dungeon, prison and the Archaeological Crypt.  See the Ducal Palace and explore the cobbled streets with their cosmopolitan mix of shops, bars and restaurants, if all that is too energetic take an open top bus tour or the little tourist road train.

 

DAY FOUR

We travel just across the border into Germany as we visit the Roman town of Trier, this morning we have a guided walking tour to see the famous Porta Nigra, a large and imposing roman city gate built between 186AD and 200AD, we also visit the ruins of the towns amphitheatre and Roman baths.  After free time in the town we head for the Mullerthal Valley, a charming region often referred to as ‘Little Switzerland’, we then stop in Echernach to see one of the largest Roman villas in what was then north-east Gaul.  We return to Vianden via Beaufort and Larochette where there is a castle, fortress ruins and even a torture chamber!

 

DAY FIVE

Today we depart Luxembourg and begin our return journey to Calais for our crossing to the UK and home.
