    Historic town
    Grund is a historic neighborhood in downtown Luxembourg. The row of waterside houses and alleys is now a popular tourist attraction. It looks as if time stops at the medieval age. A stroll around the area is pleasurable.

    Beautiful area
    Many areas in Luxembourg has many sunken areas and some above others. It is truly unusual especially in the city. It makes for an interesting and unusual. place. The Grund is one of these areas. It is like a fairytale district with gorgeous views flanked by nature and the Alzette River. It is in the heart of an old fortress and is a UNESCO site. The Grund is calmer and quieter than areas nearby. It is truly worth a visit.

    Very Scenic
    We took the free elevator down and back. There aren’t any must see stops in Grund but it’s very scenic and you can get some great photos of Luxembourg. Lots of cafes, bars and shops. We had a good lunch at Scott’s Pub.

    Drop into Grund
    A great place to visit when staying in Luxembourg City! We went down one of the many steep paths (or just take the lift) and we walked along the valley to GRUND, which feels like a completely different village surrounded by cliffs and the city above, with a very picturesque bridge and centre. There is a small museum with dinosaurs, a pretty church, several bars and places to eat… TWO Michelin star restaurants, a cosy pub and a lively bar - it was a lovely place to visit during the day and a surprisingly great place to go on Saturday night The lift stays open until 4am, there’s also a free bus

Grund is located in the valley below the centre of Luxembourg City, it is nestled on the Alzette River and is incredibly picturesque with its charming architecture and beautiful backdrop. It is a nice place to stroll and also ideal for photo opportunities. There are many landmarks at Grund including Neumünster Abbey, Casemates du Bock as well as many other sights which are squeezed into a relatively small area. We walked from Gare Centrale to Grund and then took the public lift up to Ville-Haute which took a few minutes and is very accessible. It is a very attractive area of Luxembourg City and well worth exploring.

Drop down here via one of the two lifts from the Royal City above and it is like a completely different place. Nice to just walk around visiting any of the lovely building that are open. Good places to eat or refresh. As has been said the (free) 23 bus goes from one end to the other - use it as a hop on hop off. We visited in December but I know from the past that a river walk in summer is lovely.

Grund is the old town of Luxembourg City located along the banks of the Alzette River.
It is a great place to walk around (day and night) and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, its unique architecture and the beautiful bridges.
Not to miss, the Abbey of Neumünster (cultural center) and Eglise Saint-Jean-de-Grund.

I was enthralled with Luxembourg City and the Grund was idyllically pretty. Maybe my favorite part of the city, though I may have more than one favorite place. Really really lovely, quiet waterside area of town. Take time to savor the beauty and ambience as you indulge in cafe-hoppin. Not to be missed.

Beautiful area located in the Alzette valley below the city centre. Access is either via a stiff walk down - or if you're being lazy like me the bus or the lift from just behind the palace of justice. There are lots of nice bars and a couple of good restaurants down here, to allow you longer to take in the beautiful views

This is the part of the city that you have got here for. I am sure you won't skip it. And you also shouldn't. It's nice, historical, charming. Great for photos and walking.
I recommend to use an elevator that is at this quarter. It will save you some time and energy, especially if you walk a lot.

We experienced the Grund as part of a walk through Luxembourg City. It's a neighborhood located in the lower part of the city, near the river. I believe it's better known for its nightlife, but we enjoyed wandering through it and taking photos of the scenic views during an afternoon. It was definitely nice to experience both upper and lower portions of the city.
