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.

Great guide and driver. Walking tour in Luxembourg was excellent. I wish we had left Luxembourg after that or shortly thereafter so that we could have spent more time in Bastogne. We were in Luxembourg on Sunday and nothing is open so we just sat around. Then we were unable to visit the museum at the memorial because of time limitations, which was disappointing. Bastogne had much more to offer but we just didn't have enough time there.

Other than leaving late, the day was great. To make up for the late leaving our tour guide routed us on a more scenic ride including a drive by the Grand Duke's residence. Highly recommend the trip.

Excellent way to see Luxembourg - be aware, it is a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, which makes the day a bit long, but totally worth it. Stopping to see the WWII monument at the Battle of the Bulge battleground was a lovely bonus on the trip back to Brussels.

I would recommend this tour. I really enjoyed the day. I was picked up at my hotel, left Brussels at approx 9.30 and arrived in Luxembourg approx 3 hours later, a comfort break included on the way. There was a walking tour around the city highlighting main attractions. On the way back we stopped at Bastogne not long enough to visit war museum which was a pity. Arrived back at hotel around 7.30. Well worth considering.
