Best thing about Luxembourg is surely the view from the many bridges and viaducts. Beautiful down in the Grund, too.

The cinematheque has a fantastic archive of 25,000+ films and was one of my fave haunts in the 1980s. Still a magical place, and where else in Europe could you get two cinema seats for £5?
