After spending the night in Reims, we left the next morning by train to Luxembourg, where we checked into a Doubletree a bit outside of town to spend two nights. As an aside, Doubletree’s always have the best cookies. Anyway, the afternoon was mostly just walking around Luxembourg a bit, including some sort of sightseeing train thing, as well as the Casements and a few other things. The city is really nice, even if the weather was a bit cloudy and dreary.
Train to Luxembourg
The next morning we took the train to the castle town of Vianden, where we spend a few hours, before coming back to Luxembourg and getting ready to head on to Germany in the morning.
View in the morning
The next morning we moved on from Luxembourg to Germany, heading into Cologne (or Koln depending on the spelling) by early afternoon. We only spent the afternoon exploring, but it was enough to see the main attractions: a big bridge spanning the river Mosel, and the big Cathedral near the train station. Koln was our last stop before Amsterdam.

So that was Luxembourg and Germany. Last up is Amsterdam!
