  • Pretty Cathedral but very small, down to the sub floor to see the crypt. It's nice to go have a look but by far not impressed by the framework.

  • Two steps of the place Guillaume you will find only the Luxembourg Cathedral! For that alone it is interesting visit, besides the entrance is free. However you should not expect a huge monument to the image of the country the Cathedral remains simple and without great pomp.

  • Hard to get a great photo from the outside due to all the building around it, but be sure to go inside. Best stainless windows in any European church we have visited in the past 7 weeks and 12 countries. The altar area is also magnificent. Photos don't do it justice... too dark inside for good photography. Visit the crypt downstairs. Nice timeline of Luxembourg history in the lobby. Otherwise the inside is not impressive, by European standards.
  • The only cathedral in Luxembourg, it was originally a Jesuit church. The cornerstone was laid in 1613. Despite its gothic architecture, the church also has many renaissance elements and adornments. At the end of the 18th century, the church received the miraculous image of the Maria Consolatrix Afflictorum, the patron saint of both the city and the nation. Around 50 years later, the church was consecrated as the Church of Our Lady and in 1870, it was elevated by Pope Pius IX to the Cathedral of Notre-Dame.
  • One of the tourist attractions of Luxembourg. As Luxembourg is small, do not expect a cathedral as large as the Paris sibling of this church. But still a nice place to walk by
  • Beautiful cathèdrale. Worth watching
  • Very beautiful, peaceful atmosphere
