What You Can Expect

Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels: Two Countries in One Day

Explore the ancient city of Luxembourg on your day trip from Brussels

Following a morning pickup from your hotel in Brussels, meet your guide and board your comfortable coach for the scenic drive through the green hills of the Belgian Ardennes to Bastogne. This now tranquil Belgian town is famous for being the site of violent fighting between American and German forces during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge.

Visit the Mardasson Memorial — an impressive monument built to honor the American soldiers killed in battle — and listen as your guide describes the soldiers’ valiant efforts. Stroll through Place Général McAuliffe (General McAuliffe Square) and gain insight into the heroic deeds for which this decorated US Army officer is famous.

Continue your tour with an hour’s ride to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, a landlocked country which dates back to the Roman Era. Follow your guide on a sightseeing tour through the city and admire top attractions such as the 17th-century Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Royal Palace of the Grand Duke and the bustling Place d’Armes (Armes Square), where you can watch the hustle and bustle of daily life unfold as it has done for thousands of years.

Head to the modern side of the city — which forms part of the European Union — and the plateau of Kirchberg, where important government buildings such as the European Court of Justice and the Secretariat of the European Parliament can be found. After lunch (own expense), continue on to the historic Old Town and enjoy a little free time to explore at your own leisure.

At the end of your 2-country day trip, journey back through the picturesque rolling hills of the Ardennes to reach central Brussels by mid-evening.

Please note: any entrance fees are at your own expense.
