Luxembourg - a city of culture and history
One of the great aspects of visiting the city of Luxembourg is that there is so much to see and do within easy reach. The Mudan is no exception. It is perhaps the furtherst museum from the centre but it is walkable or there are plenty of buses. For the more adventurous (or fit) there are bikes to hire throughout the city.
The Mudan – Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean – is just a short walk from the European district of Kirchberg where EU offices and departments are housed in modern buildings.
The building of the Mudan – Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean – is a work of art in itself. Designed by the famous Chinese-American architect Leoh Ming Pei, it stands against the vestiges of the Fort Thungen and is set in the Park Dräi Eechelen which offers fabulous views of the old town of Luxembourg as well and a great open space for younger visitors to run around and let off steam!
What I particularly liked was the amount of space given to exhibits allowing the viewer to walk around and take in installations from all perspectives.
This maze of coloured perspex had openings wide enough for wheelchairs and buggies and was just inviting a game or two!

From modern art to the modern city and a tour back into Luxembourg's past on the Pétrusse Express.
This sight-seeing train is a great antidote to tired feet and legs. It's also a wonderful way to get a real feel for the city as you sit back and listen to the commentary in English, French or German.
The Pétrusse Express leaves from Place de la Constitution and the whole journey from past to present takes 50 minutes. The fare is €9 for adults and €5 for chidlren but there is a 30 per cent reduction with the LuxembourgCard.
