I am about a week late in posting our latest day trip adventures, but better late than never right? Last Saturday, we took a day trip to Luxembourg City and finished the day off beautifully with a lovely evening in Metz, France. This was our first venture outside of Germany and it made for a fun day of seeing some amazing sights.
Luxembourg City has a very interesting historical military significance and it was heavily fortified, but only about 10% of that fortification still stands today.
Bock Promontory – Linked to the city by the Castle Bridge, part of the first strongholds of the city
Quirin Chapel – situated in the fortification wall
Gelle Fra War Memorial – to commemorate those of Luxembourg who died in World War I
Cathedral of Notre Dame
Metz, France, located on the Moselle River is very close to Luxembourg, so we stopped over there on the way back to Germany and took a walk around the city to get our first glimpse of some amazing architecture in France.

It was a beautiful evening for our first visit to France.
