Saint Michel's Church, Luxembourg City

4.1
#6 of 13 in Historic Sites in Luxembourg City
Featuring a fairytale-like Romanesque exterior, Saint Michel's Church is one of the oldest religious buildings in Luxembourg. The building's history dates back to 987, when the Count of Luxemburg erected a small chapel within his castle grounds. The present church combines a Romanesque facade with Gothic structural elements and Baroque interior decorations. Notice the pointed arches in the nave, large stained glass windows, a number of religious sculptures, and the huge Assumption of the Virgin painting mounted upon the Baroque altar.

Where to stay in Luxembourg City

With 24 districts making up Luxembourg City, you might have a hard time choosing what neighborhood you like best. For starters, look at accommodations in Ville Haute, the medieval center, where you’ll be at the heart of the city and within walking distance to main attractions as well as public transportation. If stunning views are what you’re after, look into Ville Basse, a central neighborhood in the city’s gorge. Gare is also well-located, home to the city’s main train station as well as many lively restaurants and cafes filled with locals. Whether you stay in one of the city’s few hostels or a hotel, be prepared for high prices.
