When I was in Mersch, it was again an accidently visit to this small, but enchanting town. There is not a lot going on there, but that is why it is so amazing. If you travel Luxembourg, Mersch is often a stop, while changing trains or buses, and if you have time, explore it. You only need a couple of hours to take a stroll through the city, have a coffee or lunch and it makes a perfect experiences. The locals there are really nice and usually happy to see some tourists, crossing their town. Mersch is just another lovely town in Luxembourg. And I think you could never go wrong, anywhere in Luxembourg.
