Grand Duchesse Charlotte Bridge, popularly known as the Red Bridge
A breathtaking lake of foliage floods the massive gorge that cuts through this city. Luxembourg has a floral biodiversity unlike any I have ever seen, and one which is a pleasure to explore. Learning the history of this great city, known as the "Gibraltar of the North" for its strategic position and defensibility, was also a treat for the mind. Strolling through quaint old lanes, sampling the culture and cuisine, trudging through densely forested mountains and hills, and marvelling at charming edifices, I found Luxembourg a great place to wind down and stimulate the senses.
