Catch the tram either at Place de Paris or Place de Metz (if you want to walk a bit more and see a beautiful Avenue de la Liberte) and leave the tram at Hamilius station.

Hamilius (Tram)
@comfortablyrestless
This tram station is super close to the city center. I suggest to explore the city from there.

Walk around 7 minutes from Hamilius tram station until Place Guillaume II. Check out the statue of Grand Duke William II and enjoy the stunning architecture around the square.

Place Guillaume II
@comfortablyrestless
It is one of the main squares in Luxembourg City, the capital of Luxembourg. In the middle of the square you will find a statue of Grand Duke William II, who reigned from 1840 to 1849. You will also find there the City Hall of Luxembourg City, that is a beautiful example of Flemish Renaissance architecture and features a distinctive clock tower.

In 1 minute walk from the square (around 60 metres) you will find the Grand Ducal Palace, which serves as the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. 

Palais Grand-Ducal
@comfortablyrestless
The Grand Ducal Palace is located in the heart of Luxembourg City, in the vicinity of Place Guillaume II and the city's historic center. Its central location makes it easily accessible for tourists exploring the city. The palace has a rich history dating back to the 16th century when it was originally constructed as a city hall. It was later converted into a royal residence in the 19th century when Luxembourg gained its independence.

Afternoon

Turn to the Rue Sigefroi, and in a couple of minutes you will see crowds of people enjoying the stunning views of the Lower Town, from the Bock Casemates. Come and find your spot! 

Bock Casemates
@comfortablyrestless
The Casemates du Bock, often referred to as simply the "Bock Casemates," are a historic underground network of tunnels and chambers in Luxembourg City. They offer excellent viewpoints overlooking the city and the Alzette River. You can walk along the fortified walls and enjoy vistas of the city's historic buildings, the Alzette River, and the surrounding valleys. In addition to the outdoor viewpoints, you can explore the extensive network of underground tunnels and chambers. These tunnels were once used for military purposes, and today they provide an interesting glimpse into Luxembourg's history.

Continue to walk vie Montée de Clausen - it will be an easy walk, as you will be going down, to the Lower Town. In around 7-8 min you will be in Clausen area, where you will find a plenty of nice bars and restaurants. 

Rives de Clausen
@comfortablyrestless
The "Rives de Clausen" is a popular and vibrant area in Luxembourg City known for its nightlife and entertainment. It is located in the Grund district, along the Alzette River, offering scenic views of the river and the surrounding area. The area is set within a historical industrial complex that has been beautifully repurposed. The old brewery buildings and industrial architecture have been transformed into trendy venues, giving the area a unique and charming atmosphere.

If you want to try a traditional Luxembourgish cuisine and have a pint of local beer, then welcome to Big Beer Company - a local brewery, very nice authentic place. 

Restaurant Bar Brauerei - Big Beer Company - Rives de clausen
@comfortablyrestless
The only micro-brewery in Luxembourg. Their beer is very good, and the food as well, if you want to eat something traditional. Check out what they write about themselves on their website: "for more than 500 years, the Mousel brewery has represented the beating heart of the Rives de Clausen and remains the witness of a landscape in perpetual motion. This building is steeped in brewing history. Generations of brewers have succeeded each other, bequeathing their heritage in turn. It is in this context that the old machine room of the Mousel brewery makes way for the new “Brauerei” brewery which reasserts with conviction its belonging to the contemporary world".

Walk a bit in the Grund area, and at some point start moving towards the Panoramic Elevator: when you leave Clausen, you need to turn left and continue along the Alley de Pierre Mansfeld for around 15-17 min until you  see an amazing elevator with a wall made of glass. 

Panoramic Elevator of the Pfaffenthal
@comfortablyrestless
Welcome to a stunning panoramic lift to the upper town centre. Once at the top, you’re only a short walk from the old town, a Unesco world heritage site. Thus you move from the ultra-modern to the historic in just a few minutes. The glass elevator connects the "Pescatore" park located in the city centre to the Pfaffenthal area at the bottom of the Alzette valley. The ride in the glass elevator features sweeping views (71m high) for pedestrians and cyclists alike. Using the elevator is free of charge. ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORT IS FREE IN LUXEMBOURG.

Spend some time, relax in a nice Parc Kinnekswiss - you will not miss it, as it's the first thing you will see once you exist the elevator. 

Parc Kinnekswiss
@comfortablyrestless

Walk towards the Theatre tram station and take a tram to Kirchberg - the business district of the city. Leave the tram at Philharmonie-Mudam station. 

Philharmonie Luxembourg
@comfortablyrestless
If you're interested in culture and the arts, visit the Philharmonie Luxembourg. Even if you don't catch a performance, the modern architecture of the building is worth seeing.

If you are into the art, I suggest you to visit MUDAM - Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean (Museum of Modern Art). It's the best place to explore contemporary art collections.
