City history

Ready to learn more about the city of Lëtzebuerg? The Lëtzebuerg City Museum is a modern museum located close to the Chemin de la Corniche and it is just around the corner of the Palais Grand-Ducal. It was opened in 1996 on eight levels containing a standard exhibition on the history of the city and changing exhibitions. The architecture itself is wonderful: modern elements connect the historic buildings dating back to the 17th century CE.

The museum sends you back to the origins of Lëtzebuerg. You can discover how this city emerged, which rulers left their traces and how the city and especially its fortifications changed over time. I especially loved the many maps and historic images of the city. Good to know: your ticket for the Lëtzebuerg City Museum is also valid for the Musée d’Art de la Ville located within the Villa Vauban (find it in the parc municipal that was created on the former city fortifications).
