Trois Glands, Luxembourg City

3.8
#8 of 10 in Historic Sites in Luxembourg City
Known locally as Three Acorns, Trois Glands represents a fortress in the city's Dräi Eechelen park. The local name comes from the three acorns that decorate the top of the three towers. The original fortress was destroyed in 1867, and the fully restored structure opened in 2012. The fortress houses a history and art museum in a modern, glass complex. Weaponry, armor, and artwork are displayed in the museum galleries alongside the history of the fortress itself. You can inspect important documents about the early history of Luxembourg, such as maps, books, and documented agreements that are displayed in French and German. Guided tours of the old fortress tunnels are given on certain days. The city tourist office provides walking maps that lead you to the fortress' entrance and through the adjoining park.

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.
