Immigration Attorney Christopher Stender practices law at Federal Immigration Counselors AZ in Phoenix. He previously practiced with a firm in San Diego. When he's not working, Christopher Stender enjoys traveling and has been to dozens of countries in Central America and Europe, including Luxembourg.
Often overlooked by travelers, the tiny country of Luxembourg, which sits between Germany, Belgium, and France, is worth a visit.
Luxembourg City, for example, is a beautiful city grown out of a 10th century fortress. The best way to explore the commune is to follow the Wenzel Walk, which leads through various historic sites along old cobblestone streets. Be sure to visit Luxembourg Castle, with roots dating back to the Middle Ages, and the Chemin de la Corniche, affectionately known as Europe's most beautiful balcony.
Another great way to explore Luxembourg is on bike. The country offers 600 kilometers of bike paths (with more on the way) and 700 kilometers of mountain bike trails. These trails are well marked and well maintained and take bikers away from the city into pristine natural areas of unforgettable beauty. Tourists can rent bikes in-country.
Finally, be sure to indulge in the local cuisine. Due to its proximity to three countries, Luxembourg's cuisine is a curious but delicious mixture of all three. Dishes include the German-inspired Kaesespaetzle, which is an egg pastry with plenty of cheese, and the Swiss potato cake Rosti.
