Travel Tips from people who've been to Luxembourg Region
This small picturesque place lies a couple of kilometers outside of Arlen (capital of the Belgian province Luxemburg). En route for the Luxemburgian village of Eischen, you pass by a little chapel, dating back to the 19th century. It is worth pulling over the car to visit this little chapel, because that's only  a small part of what you get to see. Next to the chapel is a staircase, leading down to an archaeological excavation of a medieval monastery.
The monastery was founded in about the 13th century by Countess Ermesinde, and was burned down during the French Revolution in the 18th Century.
There are, hower, indications for earlier occupation of this place, such as graves dating to the 10th century AD. Even than, it probably had a religious meaning, and the monastery may be a replacement of an even older structure.
When you get down to the archaeological site, you will see there's a small fountain. This fountain is still delivering water from the same source as more than 700 years ago. It is said that Saint Bernard visited this site, hence the source is said to be holy.

This is a great place for book-lovers! Lots and lots of bookstores, second hand and new! During summer months there's a market (I think every day) where you can buy cheese, meat,... There are some shops that sell handmade paper and books. Last time I was there (some 7 years ago) there was a lovely soap store with handmade soaps and toiletries. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes where you can eat crepes, waffles,... or steak and fries of course! I must ad that it's not a good idea to go to Redu outside of the high season. It's quite dead...

Try the "Pâté gaumais", the Gaume region traditional meatpie and "Maitrank", a traditionnal beverage in South Belgium (Gaume and Lorraine) and Luxembourg. Maitrank is made in May from white wine (Riesling) with sugar, orange, lemon and the plant "Aspérule ordorante" (in french) "Galium Odoratum" (in scientific name) that grow only in late April, start of May. Another beverage is the Orval, a Trapist beer (made by monks in Orval) that is traditionaly served at ambiant tempereture (12°c) than cold.
