Luxembourg is a very small country bordered by Belgium, France, and Germany. I had been to this country twice and, in each visit, I was amazed how beautiful the cities were - with historical buildings and magnificent sceneries gliding along the green slopes.

I was with a Chinese friend the first time I went there and it was a bit hard finding a cheaper place to stay. The initial plan was to find a hostel.
As travelers, we thought that a youth hostel would provide us a good accommodation where we could just rent beds (like a dormitory) and share a common bathroom, kitchen, and lounge. It took us more than an hour of walking until we found one located on a valley. It was really awesome and we paid less than our budget. We rested the whole night and early the next day, we went off and explored the city.

Luxembourg is a city within mountains and valleys. One moment you'd find yourself on top of a mountain, and in just a few minutes, you'd be in lowlands close to the lakes.We visited the one closest to our hostel - the underground caverns, the so-called Bock Casemates. It was originally built as a fortress by brilliant French military engineer Vauban. It became the strongest fortresses ever built. Today, the casemates are a unique network of underground galleries, 17 km of the original 23 km still exist.
Cobbled streets, historical buildings, museums and art galleries blend with contemporary boutiques and outdoor caf├ęs, giving the place a unique charm.

Luxembourg's parks and gardens spill out from the Old Town and make this an ideal walking city -especially considering the small size (cf street map) - combining nature with both a modern and a traditional feel.
We explored every corner of the city and we tasted the different beers too. I think that was the most exciting part of the journey. LOL.

We only stayed in Luxembourg for two days and then headed on to Germany. But the two days were enough to keep us so excited to come back for more.
