As part of the tour, Bettel took visitors to the state ministry building where his office is based and into the reception area and the cabinet meeting room.
Guiding visitors along the Corniche, which he said afforded “the most beautiful views of Luxembourg City”, the DP prime minister pointed out a number of features including the Abbey de Neumünster and its gardens. He also told his guests about the legend of Melusina.
The tour continued to the streets behind the grand ducal palace where Bettel pointed out some of the oldest places in the centre, like the rue de l’Eau and the iconic "Mir wëlle bleiwe wat mir sinn" inscription. Additionally, the group visited the state council and chamber of deputies, and he took visitors into the wedding ceremony room at the Hôtel de Ville.
There are around 30 tours remaining as part of the Guide for One Day initiative. Among the options are a 28 July bike trip to Kahler to see the Make Koler Kooler murals painted by Luxembourg artist Alain Welter; a 2 September#LuxUKLinks tour hosted by British ambassador to Luxembourg John Marshall; plus a number of other thematic tours ranging from gastronomy to history.
