A tour to the ancient city of Echternach

A vacation in Luxembourg is impossible to imagine without visiting the city of Echternach – one of the oldest and most picturesque cities in Luxembourg, which is about 1000 years old.

In the lower reaches of the Ur, on the banks of the Sur River on the border with the territory of Germany, lies one of the most picturesque and ancient cities of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg – Echternach, which is located only 30 km away from the capital of the country, the city of Luxembourg.

This small town, with a population of only 5 thousand people, has undoubtedly interesting millennial-long history that began with a monastery founded in this place in 698.

Old houses, narrow streets and ancient fortifications allowed the city to preserve its medieval appearance. One of the local attractions is the Benedictine abbey, founded in the VII century by Saint Willibrord. Prosperous at that time, the abbey was famous throughout the district.

The basilica with the holy spring and the underground chapel is the most significant heritage of the country. And the old church of St. Peter and St. Paul is considered the most ancient Christian sanctuary of the Grand Duchy. The church is located on a small hill in the center of the principality.

On the outskirts of the city, the remains of an ancient Roman villa are open to visitors.
