Gronn, where history and nightlife meet.

I always like to discover nice places where ever I lived. Living in a new country makes it even more possible to do so. And in Luxemburg there are so many nice area’s that look very picturesque and have a rich history.
The Grund or “Gronn” in Luxembourgish is such an area in Luxemburg City. It was build in the valley as one of the first neighborhoods to surround the castle many years ago. A lot of the original structures are still standing. You can still see the old stone bridges and fortress walls. And take my advice, when you decide to go to the Grund don’t wear your heels. Because the cobblestone streets are not designed to walk on with 10 cm of heels!

The last decades the Grund has become even more populair due to its nightlife. There are many bars, restaurants, cultural events and historical sites. Such as Neumünster Abbey, which has been there since the 17th Century. There is also a lovely Brasserie where they have great jazz concerts during the summer months.

The Grunds is such a desired destination to visit that it recently been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. So come and visit Luxemburg and if you are quick, you can still enjoy this great Indian Summer we are having here!
