I had promised you photos from Luxembourg and here are a few from the heart of Luxembourg City: the Adolphe Bridge and its beautiful surroundings. This arch bridge was designed by Paul Séjourné, a Frenchman, and Paul Rodange, a Luxembourger. The construction of it started in 1900 and it opened on 24 July 1903.
From the north end of the bridge (153 m/502 ft long) we zigzagged down the path into the valley. When you are in the valley and look up the architecture of the bridge is simply fascinating, and it makes you look really tiny. Rue de la Semois is the name of the street that goes under the bridge (the link takes you do a Google map so you can view the area). The photo below is taken from the north end into the Avenue de la Liberté, which leads to the train station.
I'll post photos from other parts of the city later. How was your weekend? I read, watched films, ate sushi, and yesterday I went for a walk in the Nightingale Park. Our drive on Saturday became a long one because we went to Luxembourg again. This time we mainly kept near with vineyards of the Mosel Valley, in the canton of Remich in the south-east part.
On our way back home we visited the old city of Arlon in south of Belgium. We had never been there before, only seen it from the highway, and it breaks my heart to say it that I wasn't impressed at all. Do you know the feeling when you enter a city and you just want to clean it with soap? That was how I felt. Maybe the stark contrast to clean Luxembourg is to blame. Maybe the economy is simply bad, but to me it seemed that the houses were in need of renovation.
