  • Relatively small by some cathedral standards but beautiful inside. Lovely stained glass. Worth a visit inside if you are passing by.  more »
  • This is a great church in Old Town. The stained glass is beautiful and there is an area where you can light candles. Definitely recommended if you are in the area as a place to visit, reflect, and tak...  more »

  • I went expecting nothing spectacular. It was the complete opposite. This chapel is so serene and peaceful. I ended up just sitting there for another hour meditating. The spirit or energy of this chapel is the most pure I've been to.
  • I've been to many cathedrals in Europe but this one was the most peaceful. Quiet, and tranquil if you go early. We were there in the morning and it was nearly empty with just a few locals praying in the chairs. Beautiful architcture, we'll kept and cleaned. All around incredible!
  • Jaw dropping beauty! Beyond my words... my good friend Chef Inspector Mars Huberty lives nearby. A pal from the shooting matches in Austria.
  • Another awesome cathedral. Okay, not as great as some, but still pretty impressive. Free entry as well.
  • 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.
