  • Beautiful church, easy to locate and a must see while visiting the centre of Luxembourg. Stain glass is amazing. 
  • A must see if in Luxembourg. The iconic building can be seen from all over the city and the inside is stunning and well worth a visit. 
  • A lovely building with interesting features - well worth a visit to look around or for a few moments of contemplation.

  • 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
