Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

With friends over from Germany for the weekend, we took advantage of the nice weather to show them my favourite part of Luxembourg City – the oldest part in the valley.

We came across this curious fellow early on

View over the old part, with the EU institutions and museum of modern art in the background

the gardens belonging to the cloisters

On the way down

the cliffs were riddled with caves used to defend the city in the past

the terraced gardens at the bottom

leaves on a liquid amber tree, discoloured by the recent frosts

the ornate interior of the baroque church of St John

the chapel of the black Madonna

On the first Saturday of the months from March through November local artists can display their wares on stands in the valley

Here’s what you can do with that pile of old books that are still hanging around – just paint them with gesso, pile them up artistically and add a head and a pair of feet and voilà

and finally, my favourite view of all

(note: more reflections!)
