Parking a “just shy of thirty feet” motor home is a capital city was not expected to be an easy task, but in Luxembourg city, this was the case. We parked in the “Glacis parking” area, accessed from two different streets. The address for Luxembourg motorhome parking is either Avenue de la Faïencerie, Luxembourg or Allée Scheffer Luxembourg.
There are no dedicated motorhome parking space so we straddled two car park pitches. The car park is large and was not full. There is also a coach parking area adjacent, but there was no one to ask about the possibility of parking there. The tariff at the time of our visit was one euro per hour, maximum stay of ten hours. Access to the parking area is via automated barrier. Payment is made by cash or card at a machine. Exit from the station is also by automated barrier.
A walk of fifteen minutes or so will take you the Luxembourg Philamonic Hall, before a descent downwards towards the old town and remaining parts of the city walls. There is quite a lot of ups and downs in this small city. However, there are a couple of lifts to take you from the lower levels to the upper levels of the old town.
Within the old town, there are various towers that you can climb, offering you almost aerial views of the city.
Climb once more though a steep descent and you will return to a modern city, with some upmarket stores such as Louis Vuton and Swarovski, whilst other familiar brand names, such as C&A are present!
Luxembourg motorhome parking – other options
The city centre makes for a pleasant afternoon out, with a contrast between old and modern. There is a shortage of motorhome stopovers/aires but there are over 60 campsites in the country. Most campsites are closed in the off season. Camping Kockelscheuer has a bus stop about 400 metres from the campsite to the city centre. Lots of tourist information about Luxembourg is available here.
