Banque Centrale du Luxembourg

The BCL is Luxembourg's Central Bank and formerly was of course responsible for guaranteeing the currency supply in Luxembourg. Now it is part of the ESCB (European System of Central Banks). There is not much to see here, but if you are interested in banking it is worth popping by to look at the building when strolling through the city.

Voie de la Liberté, Luxembourg - Luxembourg

Voie de la Liberté, Luxembourg

Voie de la Liberté

There are several "Voie de la Liberté" milestone posts in Luxembourg, some in more prominent locations than others, all commemorating the liberation by the Allies at the end of the Second World War, in 1944. The Voie de la Liberté starts all the way back in France in St. Mère Eglise, and follows the route taken by the Allies in freeing Europe. There are various points on it in Luxembourg (another is in Hamm 4km from Luxembourg City) and there are a number of books about it and a postage stamp (released in France in 1947 to commemorate the inauguration of the Voie de la Liberté).
