The Grund

During the recent business trip to Luxembourg, I, with another colleague for company, was walking everyday through the Grund from our hotel (which was on the edge of the Grund) to our offices (which are in the Grund itself). It was a 20-30 minute walk through what is possibly the most picturesque, historic part of the Luxembourg city.

The Grund is a valley in the middle of the city – part park, part residential, and part commercial… I find it quite unique in its own way. There are ruins of old fortifications, watchtowers, and defenses.. I have been there a few times now to visit friends, but never walked through it at night. At night, on the way back, we found our path lit up by ambient white light in some areas… like straight out of some fantasy film…

Below some impressions of the Grund at night…kind of tracing my path from the office back to the hotel.

    • Thank you, Emily! Luxembourg doesn’t really strike as a tourist destination at first, but its a pretty town and definitely worth spending a day there… 🙂
