There’s not loads to do in Luxembourg. So why not head to Germany for the day!
We caught the bus down to the train station. Buses are free on weekends (and soon to be free every day of the week!).
There is a train once per hour which crosses over into Germany. It was a double decker and surprisingly busy. It seems that everyone has the same idea – to go to Trier for the day.
It took about an hour to get to Trier. The border crossing was fairly unexciting. Just a river. With German flags on one side and Luxembourg flags on the other. No announcement.
Trier is one of the oldest Germany cities, and has a very old Christmas market. It was very busy! But pretty cool – lots of food, we got vegan churros (!), lieberkuchen, gluwein (mulled wine).
The market is set in the main square, surrounded by ornate old buildings.
There was a second market in front of the cathedral. And the cathedral itself was quiet, with large stained glass windows.
We spent a couple of hours wandering around, before getting the train back.
