Luxembourg, one of the wealthiest countries in the world, is not only known for its opulence but also its sustainable practices, including free public transport. When I planned my trip earlier this year, I had one thing in mind: affordable luxury. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Or in this case, have your luxury and save the planet at the same time.

Luxembourg exudes elegance, making it a dream destination for fashion lovers. And if you’re like me, you would want your travels to be as lively as the clothes in your wardrobe. So, let’s dive into my adventure, and discover how I could have made it even more eco-friendly and fun!

The Magnificent Journey

First things first, let’s talk about how I got around. Public transportation was the name of the game! With free travel by train, I was all aboard the eco-friendly express. It’s like flying, except without the guilt. And who needs wings when the trains are as smooth as silk?

Now, let’s fast forward to my itinerary. Picture this: me, exploring Luxembourg City’s landmarks in the quaint tram, feeling like a modern-day Cinderella. Then, meeting a representative from Visit Luxembourg for a walking tour and lunch at a local restaurant. Fit for a fashionista, right?

But wait, there’s more! I visited the majestic Vianden Castle, feeling like a fashion-forward princess, and even had an interview with the owner of Chateau d’Urspelt. However, my evening plans took a detour when I became unwell, forcing me to stay in my hotel room and order room service. Turns out, even fashionistas can’t escape the occasional sniffles.

The Path Not Taken

So, here’s where the adventure takes a hilarious twist. Nina Karnikowski, the sustainable travel guru, pointed out how I could have taken my eco-friendly journey to new heights. Literally, by extending my trip and prioritizing rail travel.

Imagine this: a snowy train journey from Scotland to Luxembourg, with breathtaking landscapes outside the window. A true fairy tale come to life! Sure, it may take a little longer, but who’s in a hurry when you’re living the fashionista dream?

Sustainable Stays with a Touch of Glamour

Let’s talk accommodation, shall we? On my first night, I stayed at Le Royal, a five-star hotel in Luxembourg City. Luxurious, yes! But next time, I’ll take Karnikowski’s advice and opt for a local and boutique hotel instead. Picture me in a charming, eco-friendly abode owned by a stylish local. It’s like living inside a fashion magazine!

But fear not, my dear fashion enthusiasts. We can still enjoy a touch of glamour while being sustainable. How about a visit to the piano bar at a more eco-conscious hotel? Indulge in the perfect melody of a piano while sipping on a guilt-free drink. It’s the best of both worlds!

The Grand Finale

Throughout my journey, I discovered countless ways to indulge in affordable luxury in Luxembourg. From the fashion-forward tram rides to the majestic castles, every moment was like a scene lifted straight out of a high-fashion editorial.

But here’s the best part: you can experience all of this without compromising the planet. So, if you’re a fashion lover with a heart for the environment, embrace eco-friendly adventures in Luxembourg. Trust me, your style will shine even brighter in the lush, sustainable landscapes of this charming European gem.
