The Wenzel Walk

About two weekends back Paula and I went into the City Centre on a Sunday to do a walkabout and see some sights. We walked through the main part of town for awhile and then started on the Wenzel Walk which is cultural and historical. The Wenzel Walk guides you through the oldest quarters of the City. In 1994 this historical core of the old town, as well as some of the fortress works which are still in good condition, were declared World Heritage by UNESCO.

The Wenzel Walk guides you through the millennial history of Luxembourg City. Its name pays tribute to Wenceslas II, Duke of Luxembourg between 1383 and 1419 during whose rule a part of the third ring, the so-called Wenzel wall, was erected.

Take a look at all of our pictures of the Walk at the following link.....http://www.flickr.com/gp/19438244@N03/p72h67

I just realized that I screwed up the post title name. It is supposed to be Wenzel walk! The Z and Y are switched on European keyboards and I thought I was used to it but I am still getting there....

Hello-
I came across your blog online when doing research for my upcoming trip to Europe. I plan to go to Luxembourg, Belgium and Amsterdam (Amsterdam is my base). However, I've had a difficult time finding information on Luxembourg. I would appreciate it if you could help me find more information. I was considering spending 2 days and 1 overnight there - one day in the city and perhaps one day in the country seeing some castles and such. Please let me know if you have suggestions of what to see, how to get there, where to stay, etc.

I will be in Europe from Aug 1-9.

Thanks so much for your help!
