For anyone who has visited Luxembourg, you’ll know it’s a small country with big energy. Luxembourg City, the capital, has a diverse and storied history which is represented in its distinct neighbourhoods, notable museums and cultural riches. In the old city centre, you’ll find Hotel Le Place d’Armes in an “unconventional ensemble of buildings” which fits into the city’s picturesque architecture perfectly. The hotel is made up of seven interconnected and refurbished homes, so you’ll enter from the winding outdoor cobblestone streets into curving corridors that blend history with contemporary design.

It’s a wonderful time to visit as Christmas approaches. This little nation is nestled in the mountains, and the snowy peaks will create a breathtaking backdrop to your festivities. Indeed, here is where Christmas will come to you. The traditional holiday markets transform Place d’Armes and surrounding squares into a spirited Christmas village, sure to inspire some magical and memorable experiences.

While you may spend much of your time out and about exploring what entertainment the city has to offer, back at the hotel you can expect the excellent type of personal service Relais & Chateaux is known for, allowing you to relax and unwind. Each room has a unique character reminiscent of the buildings’ 17th-century history. Wake up feeling like royalty in your boutique suite adorned with chandeliers, exposed wooden beams and marble; cozy in by the ancient fireplace in an antique armchair.

Of note is the brilliant cuisine served in the hotel’s three dining establishments which you’ll surely want to indulge in, so try to leave room after those holiday market treats! From the bistro to fine dining, the food and beverage team invites guests to an array of stylish gastronomic experiences. Of course there’s Room Service for those seeking more private spoils, too.

If you’re lucky enough to find your way to Luxembourg this season, may we suggest a stay at Hotel Le Place d’Armes.
