Reims and Luxembourg

We joined our tour and left Paris for Reims - the city that saw the coronation of many French kings. The cathedral was magnificent and was built around same time as Notre Dame Paris commenced. The cathedral was bombed in WW2, so some sections are newer as they were rebuilt. The stained glass reflects its royal history. You can imagine the royal kings riding their carriage through the countryside to arrive in town on the cobbled streets.
After visiting Reims and its magnificent Cathedral we headed over to Luxembourg. A financial powerhouse due to banking and steel. Arriving at 4.30 pm it was dark and very cold, however plenty of people out in the streets and at the various Christmas markets dotted around the town. We were orientated in the city and then free time. The pics include Duke’s palace and Christmas markets. The mulled wine smells sickly sweet so is off the menu for us.
