24h in Luxembourg-City

Start your day by visiting the historical centre, including the Grand-Duchy Palace, the Museum of History from the city or the MNHA in the charming pedestrian streets.

The best coffee in town, roasted in-house, is served at Knopes.

Most of the restaurants in place d’Armes, the city spot for many Luxembourguish people, serve breakfasts. Special mention for the bakeries/restaurants Kaempff-Kohler, Oberweis, Namur and House of Chocolate, which are also tearooms. Young bakery chef Cathy Goedert helds a fantastic brunch on Sunday.
