Fodor's Expert Review Cathédrale Notre-Dame

Luxembourg Church
Free

Built in the late-Gothic style, this cathedral has a fine portal sculpted by Daniel Muller of Freiburg and an attractive Baroque organ gallery. During the fortnight of national pilgrimage starting on the third Sunday after Easter, large numbers of Luxembourgers flock to their cathedral. The closing ceremony, attended by the royal family, is an event no politician can afford to miss, regardless of party and persuasion. The crypt, down a broad staircase, contains the tomb of John the Blind, the gallant 14th-century king of Bohemia and Count of Luxembourg, who fell at the Battle of Crécy in France during the Hundred Years' War. Here, too, are the tombs of the grand-ducal dynasty.
