*TAMMY'S TRAVELS* Day 5 - Luxembourg City

The city is built amid deep gorges cut by the Alzette and Petrusse Rivers and is known for its ruins of medieval fortifications. 

Tammy stands near the statue of its beloved Grand Dutchess Charlotte.

Also see her making friends with little girls just like her.


  1. Wow, beautiful! What a lucky doll!

  2. Fawn, you are giving Tammy so many great memories!!

    This is probably an odd question, but... are all the buildings in Luxembourg made from stone? Or do people not paint their homes, or are there rules about colors one can paint? Looking at your pictures, it looks like most buildings are variations of cream and brown. I'm just curious. Some neighborhoods where I live almost look like children's drawings because each house is so brightly/differently painted.

    I don't travel much. It's fascinating to see other parts of the world!

    1. Medival cities were almost always made of stone because of the threat of fire. I don't know about the color choices, but all architecture in the city centers of the places we visited had very strict renovation standards. Any exterior changes or renovations must be historically accurate.

  3. Tammy, I hope you are writing all of this in your journal! It will be fun to read in years to come!

  4. Another great adventure for Tammy! Madelon
