The attractive town of Grevenmacher is located on the left bank of the beautiful Moselle River in Luxembourg, close to the border with Germany, and is now an important vine-growing and commercial centre, having previously been a fortified town.

The Roman heritage is still felt in the town, coupled with many medieval sites. The Medieval Tower is part of the walled city but is now a hugely popular holiday rental. Contrasting with this, the Butterfly Garden is well worth a visit, and transports visitors into a tropical oasis, where hundreds of butterflies flutter around. The stunning flowers and idyllic atmosphere of the garden must also be explored.

For a museum with a difference, visit the Kulturhuef Museum, featuring two permanent exhibitions. The first of these is a ‘Print and Playing Card Museum’ retracing the history of playing cards, where they were produced in the town for five generations; and the other focuses on the many forms of printing through history.

No visit to Grevenmacher is complete without visiting the Domaines Vinsmoselle Caves de Grevenmacher, the oldest wine cellar of the Luxembourg Moselle.
