The origins of today’s Luxembourg can be traced back to the Bock Promontory, a naturally rocky area, where Count Siegfried decided to build a small fortress called Lucilinburhuc (or “small castle”) in 963. Over time, the area kept growing to accommodate the increasing population, well past the original fortress and into the surrounding areas that now make up the city of Luxembourg.
As part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the stunning Ville Haute neighbourhood is full of must-see historical jewels, including the grand ducal Palace, the official residence of Luxembourg’s Grand Duke and Grand Duchess, as well as the gothic cathedral "Notre-Dame de Luxembourg".
Whether you're interested in the city's history, want to explore the local cultural scene or just fancy strolling along the capital's quaint streets, Ville Haute is the right place for you. Come and experience its historic sights and monuments, enjoy the shops and bustling restaurants and make memories you will treasure for years to come.
