|There were a lot of huge windmills on our drive|
We spent a lot of our time wandering and strolling the streets, and checking out the different Christmas markets. It was really enjoyable walking from stall to stall listening to the music being played, getting gluhwein served in our souvenir mugs, and standing by the fire pit trying to keep warm while snowflakes gathered on our hats.

Of course we did spend some time walking around the city. We wandered through the streets and came across the Palais Grand-Ducal. Royals once lived there when it was built in the 1500s, but now it is used as the Grand Duke's office and for formal receptions. We passed by churches, museums, and over bridges that connect the old town to the rest of the city. We also passed the historic Luxembourg Castle.
We're really glad that we took a side trip to Luxembourg. We had an enjoyable time wandering the streets and had a memorable experience at the cemetery. While small in size, Luxembourg has a lot to offer and should not be skipped over if one is nearby.
