Villa Vauban is a Luxembourg art museum that displays paintings from the 17th to 19th centuries. Here are some of the things you can do at this museum:

  • Study a sizable collection of art. The collection mainly consists of paintings and sculptures from three generous donations by Jean-Pierre Pescatore, Leo Lippmann, and Eugénie Dutreux-Pescatore. The art in the museum includes 17th-century Dutch paintings, Italian art from the 19th century, and French paintings from the 19th century.
  • Explore a unique museum building. Villa Vauban occupies the former site of a Luxembourg fort named after Louis XIV’s fortress architect, Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban. The museum stands on the fort’s foundations, and you can see part of the fort’s wall in the museum’s basement.
  • Visit temporary events at the museum. The current exhibition, Welcome to Villa Vauban, focuses on the recent additions to the museum’s collection.

You can reach Villa Vauban by several transport options: by bus, bicycle, or on foot. Bus routes 21, 22, 28, and 31 will take you there. The closest bus stop to this museum is Place de l’Étoile.

What people say about Villa Vauban - Musée d'Art de la Ville de Luxembourg

July 2022
VERY USEFUL as luxembourg is quite small and public transport with trams very good so all you need is the app and you have the best guide in your mobile phone.

I think this tour is around 15km long depending on your route. Some stops are hard to see on the map, but if you use google maps you should be fine. The tour is definitely not for elderly, children or disabled people as it goes up and downhill. You do see everything Luxembourg has to offer. However, if you’re not interested in museums this is nog for you as it passes all of them. The storyteller is obsessed with heels which is quite annoying. If you did the tour you’ll know what I mean!
