Viva España !
What is great about Luxembourg is that enjoying a weekend in an European capital is so easy to book! With many destinations available either by train or flight, Luxembourg is definitely at the heart of Europe.
But this weekend, we are bringing you to Madrid! The Spanish capital is a paradise for « cervezas con tapas ». The city is full of little restaurants that offer Spanish cuisine and, above all, the Spanish ambiance. Imagine entire streets with people drinking and eating after a long day of work, under the Spanish sun and surrounded by culture and historic buildings.
Apart from food and drinks, the city is a true gem for museums and botanic garden such as El Prado and its extensive collection of Picasso, Goya and Velasquez. The old Post building is an architectural marvel and let’s not forget, La Puerta del Sol, iconic square of Madrid.
Green areas and parks are also common with the Palacio Real and its beautiful botanic garden or the Retiro park with its lake. Why not take the time to rent a boat and relax under the sun in this « green lung » in the middle of Madrid ?
Don’t forget to stop by the Rastro, a traditional street market in Madrid that covers an entire neighborhood ! And of course, La Plaza España, unmissable if you want to do some shopping!
And if you want to trade the city for the countryside on Sunday, head to Aranjuez, the home of the Royal Family and a beautiful Medieval town that has a rich and tasty gastronomy!
