Luxembourg City was a fortress renowned throughout Europe for several centuries, and countless remains still to be seen around town remind visitors of the city’s rich heritage in the field of military history. Medieval Luxembourg, for its part, would appear to have left fewer traces of its past.

The Medieval City of Luxembourg - Cya On The Road

Our tourguide takes you to lesser-known spots in the medieval city. History students from the Institute for History at the University of Luxembourg share their knowledge with you, bringing to life the city and its inhabitants between the tenth and sixteenth century.

In the course of the tour, you will encounter exhibits taken from the exhibitions “Urban Archaeology” at the Musée national d’histoire et d’art and “The Luxembourg Story” on display at the Lëtzebuerg City Museum. These exhibitions are an excellent way in which to complement this tour.

The items as shown were recovered from excavations which (unless otherwise stated) were conducted by the Centre national de Recherche archéologique (CNRA) and the former Fonds national de renovation de la vieille ville.
