These shots were taken during a walk my partner and I took through the Grund area of Luxembourg City. We took the walk before the snow hit us about a week ago, so things are greener (and much less cold) in the photos than they are currently. I still try to get down there and take a walk whenever I’m feeling stir crazy, as the views and trickling water are quite relaxing. I hardly even notice the cold.
The Grund is in the valley below city center, carved out by the Alzette River. There is a park just about a block from us (or whatever they call blocks here), where a cobbled path weaves down into this area. It is the perfect foot path for long walks or bike rides, and has some of the most beautiful scenery I have seen so far in this city. I would highly recommend this area (along with the casemates) to tourists. If you’re intimidated by the stairs or long winding paths, there is an easy way down and back out: in the center of the Grund is a lift that will take you straight up into city center.
There is some shopping and decent dining down in this area, but I recommend it just for the excercise and the beauty. Don’t miss it!
