Setting sail from Luxembourg

Tiny Luxembourg's even tinier capital city enjoys a spectacular setting, perched on a dramatic bluff where the Pétrusse and Alzette rivers meet. The UNESCO-listed old town is an unexpected joy to explore, and a sizeable population of foreign workers means that the city is also a very cosmopolitan place.

Arriving in Nuremberg

Nuremberg, Bavaria's second city, first pops up in the history books in 1050 as a stronghold of the Franks, and later became the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Nuremberg was also the centre of the German Renaissance, although in the 20th century it became associated with the Nazis; huge rallies were held here, and Nazi officials were later tried and convicted at the Nuremberg Trials. Happily Nuremberg has bounced back from these dark days, and nowadays the city is a tourist magnet thanks to the beautifully restored old town, Christmas markets and excellent beer.

Our tip

Nuremberg is completely rebuilt so has a bit of a Disneyesque feel to it. But this was a key centre for Hitler, so turn your back on toytown and visit the Documentation Centre (excellent exhibit) and Zeppelinfeld, where most of the big Nazi rallies took place.
