Quick Stop- Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Roughly about the size of Rhode Island, is the small country of Luxembourg situated between France, Germany, and Belgium.

We were leaving Germany and entering France anyway, so what better way than to stop into one of the small countries in Europe. It was so cold the trip there.

Separated by rivers, you have to climb up multiple stairs along the outside of fortification walls.

Once atop the fortifications, there was some pretty architecture.

There was also this Spanish citadel along the wall.

Also along the wall is the Hollow Tooth ruin.

And there is also a plague dedicated to the people who served at the Battle of the Bulge.

We didn't spend much time there, again the city and country is very small, but it was nice to cross off another country from our list of travels.

As our trip started to take shape during planning, it was clear that we could either swing out wide through Belgium or cut through Luxembourg. We quickly chose the latter, I think in part because it just seems more cool and we want to visit more in Belgium at a later time.

We only stopped for an hour or two, but I really enjoyed the time we spent there. I only wish we had done more research ahead of time to know more history and what else we could see there.
