Luxembourg City

While i was in Belgium i went to Luxembourg on a day trip. It was a 3 or 4 hours train trip and it was really worth it. The city is really beautiful, especially the downtown and the casamates are great.

I was there 1 week ago and a few days before Heidi "dollart" was there too. When i got home i had her and my card waiting for me.

My card shows the Stierchen Bridge crossing the Alzette river. This is a medieval bridge built in the 14th century.

Heidi sent me this card of the Grand Ducal Palace with a picture of the Royal Family.
It is the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and where he performs most of his duties as head of state of the Grand Duchy. As the official residence of the Grand Duke, the palace is used by him in the exercise of his official functions. He and the Grand Duchess, together with their staff, have their offices at the palace, and the state rooms on the first floor are used for a variety of meetings and audiences. in: wikipedia
The members of the Royal Family are the Grand Duke Henri married to Maria Teresa Mestre. Their children are: Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Prince Félix, Prince Louis, Prince Sébastien and the Princess Alexandra.
