LOVELY LUXEMBOURG

The Grand Duchy, which already has luxury in its name, is just an hour's flight away. Where better to enjoy a Burgundian weekend than in Luxembourg. Six luxury hotspots in a row.

Sleep

Le Place D'Armes

Understated chic in an old city palace on a lively square. A small-scale hotel with rooms and suites that stand out because of the power of luxurious and understated simplicity: a beige/white color palette with hints of gold, modern furniture in combination with Empire and Louis XVI, all with rideaux occultants (which I mention here only because the term is so beautiful, because they are simply blackout curtains) and large opening windows. The restaurant has a Michelin star, the doorman is of the famous order of the golden keys and the staff is extremely hospitable and helpful.

Château Urspelt

An official national monument in a gigantic national park, eco-friendly on all sides, with charging stations for your electric car. But in a classical style, with castle beds and pillars and a curved entrance gate through which many bridal couples have walked. Choose the Grand Ducal Suite, 100 square meters and five rooms in size, on the castle's piano nobile for the ultimate Lord of the Manor feeling. Please inquire in advance whether there is a large party during your stay, because then the individual guest may be left out.

Golfing

Golf Club Grand Ducal De Luxembourg, Senningerberg

Love tradition and gentility? Then visit Grand Ducal, one of the oldest clubs in Luxembourg. In 1934, HRH Grand Duchess Charlotte donated lands from the royal family. The well-maintained 18-hole course is now located there in a park-like landscape with numerous old trees. Most fairways are not very long and a bit narrow between the trees. So hitting straight is rewarded. We used more iron than wood. The track is fairly flat and there are no water features. Major JC Symonds' design was inspired by the great Tom Simpson. In 2014, Tom MacKen-see was allowed to make some adjustments. As a pioneer of Luxembourg golf, the club has a strong tradition. Honorary President is currently HRH Prince Félix of Luxembourg. An avid golfer who feels at home in the subdued splendor of the classic clubhouse. Here you can relax and enjoy old-fashioned service and catering.

Shop

Smets, Strassen

Pascaline Smets, the purchasing director of SMETS in Luxembourg and Brussels, was named one of the most important people in the fashion sector by the influential website Business of Fashion. Thanks to her, the premium multi-brand store not only became the place to shop (with designer and luxury labels such as Chloé, Givenchy, Helmut Lang, Moncler, Jacquemus and Balenciaga) but also the place to be during parties and exclusive product drops from brands such as Rimowa and OffWhite. You will find a food corner with delicacies, a skate room, restaurant, beauty shop and design corner with furniture from Cassina, Knoll, MDF Italia and Vitra, among others.

Innovative Gallery

Nosbaum Reding, Luxembourg City

The gallery has existed since 2001 and is an established name in the international art scene. She has access to two spaces in Luxembourg City. In the largest, established names such as Stephan Balkenhol, Damien Deroubaix and Philippe Cognée show their latest works of art. Nosbaum Reding Projects has housed the second space with a separate entrance since 2014. There, guest curators realize experimental exhibitions with young artists from all over the world. For example, Mike Bourscheid presented his comic installation no lemon no melon there last year. He combined objects such as a saddle, armor and helmet in a performance with a ceramic headdress and on top of that a vase as a crown: an implicit reference to the course of events during medieval tournaments. This top gallery participates in the art fairs Art Brussels, Art Cologne, Artgenève and the Salon du Dessin Contemporain Paris.

Members Only Club

House 17

Maybe House 17 is not necessarily something for a weekend away, but at MASTERS we think this Luxembourg club is certainly worth mentioning. Classic-modern or modern-classic, we haven't decided yet. The fact is that House 17 represents a new concept. Casual but with the traditions of an old club. Everything here is focused on the feeling of being at home. This way you can become a member with the whole family. We cannot escape a kind of second-home feeling. This is undoubtedly due to the surprisingly loose style. House 17 was founded in 2014 and is housed in a stately monument, where the Cantonal Court used to be. Location: heart of the city. From the terrace you look out over the Pétrusse valley and the old fortifications. It's nice dining out here. Everything inside is gastronomically fine. People can indulge in the two bars and the smoking lounge. The splendor of the past blends seamlessly with today's style. The result: an elegant and cozy atmosphere. House 17 responds to the trend of the new era and that feels good. But with a good cigar. Membership rates: 18 to 30 years: € 450; members over 30 years old: €850; family package: €1.300; corporate company, 1-3 names: € 1.700; corporate company, 4-5 names: € 2.500.
