Our trip to Luxembourg

Last weekend we took a day-trip to Luxembourg to visit Matt and Liv, who were spending some time in that city with Liv's parents. Michael took some really amazing pictures, the city is beautiful and we were lucky to visit on a bright, sunny day. In addition to seeing the sights in the city, we were treated to a fabulous meal prepared by Liv's parents. We can't wait to go back.

Luxembourg may be small, but it has maintained its independence through many European wars, proving that good walls make for good neighbours.

Matt and Liv at a scenic overlook.

Rivers flow through the city center.

Structures emerge from the cliff face.

I'm doing my best to ruin Michael's picture of the Ducal Palace, the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg.

Looking down from the top of the cliffs.

Another view from the cliffs.

This bridge is made of sandstone, which qualifies it as a contender for "architectural blunder of the century".

A nicer picture of the Ducal Palace.

Sculptures winking at Michael just outside the Palace.

Houses built right into the cliffs and city walls.

The skyline of Luxembourg city.

I just realized that if you double click on Michael's pictures they blow up full size! Nice shots Mike. Looks like you had a good time visiting.

I liked the photos with the river. A nice calm place to visit and maybe live for some time.
