The Corniche lives up to its reputation with wonderful views in a pleasant walk. The most was very low on the day I visited which added to the enjoyment. I recommend you also explore the nearby Saint Michael’s Church and the historic Bock.

This is frequently called one of Europe’s beautiful balconies. The view is from the ramparts built by the French and Spanish back in the 17th century. From this walkway, we had great views of the old city. When we visited, people wanted to take photos or selfies, so we patiently waited our turn. It’s definitely a photo opportunity.

If you want some amazing photos with a picturesque European view, then this is where you need to be while in Luxembourg. It’s great for walking along the cobblestone streets of Old Town. Be sure to check out all of the amazing, historic old buildings. This area is located near the city center. Some of the better views are from a balcony overlooking this area. I was told that theirs a lift that can get you down to the river if you’re not wanting/able to walk, but I never used it. From higher vantage point, you can spot a Fortress nearby. I’ll have to check it out on a return visit if it’s tourist friendly.

This is a lovely way to see some of the best views in Luxembourg City. The walk along here is not too long and very peaceful, and a great place to take photos. Also a handy way to walk to the Casemates which are near the top of the pathway.

The place to see the specific position of Luxembourg-City, this THE place that you have to see in Luxembourg-City. You can see the lower old town, beautiful old buildings on top, forts all around the way, modern buildings of European Union institutions, the former prison in the valley, the river carving out the rocks... If you have only one hour in town this is the place to head to. Don't forget the adjacent Montée de Clausen with the remains of the 10th century castle.

The Chemin de la Corniche is the best path to admire the lower city of Luxembourg. It runs along the Alzette valley on the ramparts. The view is truly amazing! A must see when you visit Luxembourg City.

It isn't hard to locate it. If you park your car at the St. Esprit parking lot, once you get out of the elevator and out the doors of the parking building, you turn left. Once you bypass the building on your left, the Chemin de la Corniche will be on your right. If for some reason you can't find it, look for where the lower city is located. It runs parallel to that lower city.

Enjoy this worthwhile visit of Luxembourg City.

P.S. Interestingly enough, this path was built by both the Spaniards and the French in the 17th century.

Caveat emptor: this is five stars for Luxembourg; we're not talking the Grand Canyon or Rapa Nui... but if you want to get panoramic views of the old town, the river (river?!) Alzette, Vauban's fortifications, etc, then this easy stroll is the best way to get them. And it won't cost you a cent.
No need for a selfie-stick: ask a local to take your picture against the impressive vistas. You won't lose your camera/mobile phone. (Actually, don't take a selfie-stick anywhere...)

My first impression of Luxenburg city was that of a colourless, indifferent, unatrractive big city with huge box-buildings. But I was in the city center surrounded by banks and offices.. Just 10 mins away, I was about to experience one of the most wonderfull scenic strolls ever, during my trips around the world!! Le Chemin de la Corniche!! Dont miss it, it's a must!

Take this walk. Just do it. It's not that long, it's free, the views are beautiful and really, it's one of the more fascinating things to do in Luxembourg city. My mom and I did it, moving at a leisurely pace, stopping to take pictures and read the signs. We completed the whole thing in less than an hour.

The Corniche winds it's way around the upper portion of the city, but allows you a magnificent view across the older, lower part of the city. It also accesses the old walls and gates of the original ancient city. The gates themselves date back over 1,000 years to 963. And seeing old stuff is always fun, especially for Americans, who don't have many things dating back before 1963.

We did not have the time to go to the lower city, but we really enjoyed seeing it from the Corniche's vantage point. I totally recommend this walk.

The concierge at our hotel, Hotel Parc Beaux-Arts, in Luxembourg City was very informative about the city he loved and he was kind enough to map out a walking tour for us around part of the old city. The excursion included walking along La Chemin de la Corniche which is claimed by many to be the most “beautiful balcony in Europe’ because of the views. The route borders the old city wall ramparts along Alzette Valley and the views are truly spectacular.

If you visit Luxembourg, a tour of Le Chemin de la Corniche is an absolute must.
