Arriving in Trier, Germany

12 09 2017

It’s just an hour journey east from Luxembourg City to Trier, one of the oldest cities in Germany with multiple monuments pronounced as World Heritage Sites, on the local train.  It was a short walk from the train station to the historical and commercial center of the city marked by an ancient Roman gate, Porta Nigra.

And inside the gate, a very cute city center.

 





From Luxembourg City, Luxembourg to Trier, Germany

10 09 2017

Luxembourg is such a small country that borders are very close which was one of the reasons why I decided to visit it and its capital so that I could visit Trier, Germany, a historic city with multiple World Heritage sites.

So I took a day out of my stay in Luxembourg City to visit Germany.

The night before my trip, went to get train tix for the next day.

The next morning, I took one of the trains that left around 9:30 am.

My ride

Arriving in Trier just after one hour journey





Churches in Luxembourg City

7 09 2017

I love visiting churches (Christian in this case) and just sitting there, taking it all in though I’m an atheist.

A few churches I visited during my stay in Luxembourg City this past summer.

Trinity Church, a Protestant church

St. Michael’s Church

A local, newish church. Not sure what it’s called!

The Notre-Dame Cathedral, all of below.





Yet More of Luxembourg City

The second morning in Luxembourg City; another beautiful day.

And time for lunch.

And some supermarket browsing.





More of That Lovely Luxembourg City

Continuing with the walk in Luxembourg City.

There is a cute touristy train you can take to go around the hilly city.

There is an elevator that takes you from the lower end of the city to the top end of it.

Love it.





The City Skyliner in Luxembourg City

29 08 2017

I never had this figured out until I decided to do a post now on this panoramic, turning observation deck called “Cityskyliner” that I saw from the ground in Luxembourg City.  I thought it was a permanent fixture in the city but no, they apparently bring it in, and take it back.

Quite like!  Should’ve gone on!!
