luxembourg: a walk in the city centre


Last week I took my daughters to the city centre of Luxembourg. I grabbed the camera with me so these are just a few shots from our day. The main shopping area in the city centre is a car-free zone. You walk along cobblestone streets, some narrower than others. It is a small and beautiful area and on rue Philippe II you can grab a few macarons or ice cream at Ladurée before continuing your walk. The scenery from the Boulevard F.D. Roosevelt (map) into the Pétrusse valley is beautiful. More on that later.
