Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
BCEE Clock Tower
This impressive clock tower, as seen from across the Petrusse Valley, was the Hôtel de la Caisse d’Epargne when it was built in 1909. Today, it is the headquarters of Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Eta. Founded in 1856, the BCEE is owned by the Grand Duchy. It is Luxembourg’s oldest and largest savings bank.
I traveled to Luxembourg City, the capitol of the only Grand Duchy (a state or territory ruled by a grand duke or duchess) in the world, on Sunday! I walked the Wenzel Circuit, which details the history of the capitol and pays tribute to Wenceslas II, duke of Luxembourg between 1383 and 1419, who had the Wenzel wall built. My middle name, my sisters’ middle names and my mom’s maiden name are all Wenzel so it was a pretty neat thing to see! 👸🏼 I also checked out the UNESCO world heritage fortress, with Europe’s most beautiful balcony, the Bock Casemates and the Old City. I loved the foliage looking down from the pedestrian bridge! 🇫🇷➡️🇱🇺 #luxembourgcity#luxembourg#grandduchy#13thcountry#europe#solotravel#solofemaletraveler#travel#adventure#explore
