As opposed to the city promenade the Wenzel circular walk focuses on the town fortifications and descends into the valley. We were guided by George, a volunteer with a passion for the subject. He proved very friendly, knowledgeable, witty and open to questions. Explanations covered history and facts and figures of Luxemburg. The walk comprised a lot of picturesque spots.... More

Lots more photos on my food and travel blog, Thyme, at rileymadel(at)yahoo(dot)com. The Wenzel tour was a wonderful option for spending a full afternoon in Luxembourg. Our, guide, Robert was informative and friendly. We covered so much more of the city than I imagined. Of course, The Bock Casements were wonderful, better than I anticipated. Learning about the history of... More

We went to the Tourist office and got two pamphlet this one and the City Promenade. We did not use any guide. We just did it on our own. It was brilliant. The map and explanations on the pamphlet were great. I felt like part of a treasure hunting game taking place in the middle age. Luxemburg city has become... More

We took the guided tour for English speakers with guide Sylvie a native of Luxembourg. It was a great tour and you need to wear sturdy walking shoes as the casements can be quite uneven under foot. Our guide knew the city well and was able to give a lot of interesting information. She was very considerate of all group... More

We took the Wenzel Circular Walk, Self-guided, on our recent stay in Luxembourg. The views far exceeded expectations, and there was lots of information in the pamphlet, as well as signage everywhere in the city making it easy to follow. The entire city is gorgeous and we high enjoyed our walk. If we returned we would do it again, possibly... More

I took the guided Saturday tour and our group was divided into French and English. The Germans went on a separate tour since there were so many of them. Our guide spoke in one language, then the other, so I had time to look around at things when she was speaking French. The tour is long, but full of really... More

We enjoyed following Wenzel's trail quite a bit, even without a guide. Lots to see, not boring, definitely recommended. However, would suggest to do the guided walking tour version that is offered through the city's Tourist Office. Luxembourg's history is rich and interesting and following this trail - especially with a guide - will make this information available quite nicely... More

Best way to see Luxembourg. Lovely walk. Well sign posted and beautiful. Walking along the river and around the case mates were a favourite.

We did this walk in about 1.5h and that included taking lots of pictures. It's a great circular walk taking in the historical old town's walls. The information boards are in French and German, and provide you with a good and detailed account of the features along the walk. The walk is very well signposted and easy to navigate. It... More
