where/what for 2 nights in Luxembourg (OUTSIDE city)

Next summer traveling Paris-Basel-Strasbourg-Antwerpen-Amsterdam,and along the wat (Strasb-Antw) have time for a nice or two in Luxembourg, and would rather stay outside a major city.

Looking for ideas, either total different or improving my current thought.

day 1 , early train Strasbourg - Luzembourg, see LuxembourgCity, for few hours than continue on to Vianden.

day 2 spend in Vianden area, castle, chairlift, short walks.

day 3 bus to Clervaux, see Family of Man photographs and then train onto Antwerpen

Questions.

is the city stop day 1 worth it....or should I go direct to Ettelbruck on one train trip. Extra cost for 2nd train L City to E ??

if I skipped L City and got Vianden middle day is a 2nd day needed.

is the any bicycle hire in Vianden for day 2.

is Vianden quiet at night (in summer), I expect many day visitors but do most leave in evening or overnight ?

any luggage storage Clervaux station ?

I was considering Beaufort (sounds nicer) but hostel there is already booked for 2 weeks in summer. I also understand there are buses from Vianden to Clervauz which avoids backtracking, and saves time day 3.

correcting the obvious typo in para 1 - its a 'night' or 2 along the way, which I hope will be 'nice'.

And another question - day 2, where would be close and easily accessible from Vianden, in Germany.

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but Family of Man expo is closed until 2013 for major renovations of the halls and photographs.

Don't miss the City it's not that large during summer holidays the business hustle and bustle has gone, stay at the youthhostel. The country is small and distances from one place to another are short you can easily do day trips do a loop Vianden-Echternach-Wasserbillig (side trip to Trier 7 € from here ) or Grevenmacher then Mosel riverboat to Remich-Mondorf . A day ticket is 4 €, the 2 hour ticket is 1,5 € valid on all public transport or check out the LuxembourgCard there is a TO at the train station when you arrive go there and see what's going on. Summer-In-The-City has been great this year lots of things happening to keep you entertained.

I agree do not miss the City in summer. There are many things to do and see.

Look here closer to the date.

The tourist office people are very helpful.

Vianden is quiet at night--unless it's World Cup time.

If you need more information about Ettelbruck, Vianden, Clervaux, ... don't hesitate to visite our website over the Luxembourg Ardennes.

It's worth seeing it!
