They'll probably travel through Holland to get there.

Xai: Amsterdam. 'coffee shop'


Yup. If you're landing at Schiphol anyway, just take the train to Centraal Station and walk a few blocks.  Although the famously tolerant Dutch are starting to get a little tired of being famous for weed tourism, and of people making idiots of themselves.  Recently there has been some talk about making weed sales "for residents only", and IIRC the city of Maastricht--located near the Belgian and German borders--did implement such a restriction.

Poor Luxembourg. Can't even afford their own flag so they borrow Netherlands'.

Take (or don't take) that right at Albequerque. Can't remember which.

Had to Covid cancel a trip to Europe last year which included a day in Lux.  Now, if I ever go, I may want to skip the europot tourists.

My Wikipedia map count is only 17 states where recreational use is legal, and 11 states where all marijuana use is still illegal and criminalized.

Didn't they make it illegal) to sell tol tourists?

Obviously Luxembourg won't work, but Christania in Copenhagen has as open market, with stalls. It's still illegal, and the police raids once in a while.

FWIW, it's still illegal at a federal level throughout the US.

I bought herbal speed in Maastricht.

I have been to very many countries in Europe, not every single one, but a lot.

Yeah, Luxembourg was by far the most boring.

The only interesting thing I saw in Luxembourg city, was the suicide bridge. But nothing happened.

Cool story Yada yada: I've started learning a bit of Luxembourgish since I know some German.  Cool language but it took getting a book sent from Luxembourg to actually learn the language. Most books were in German or French.  I found one book in English.

Trocadero: I forget, are they a kingdom or a principality?


Actually, it's officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

For those traveling through western Europe who prefer to do their weed tourism in Amsterdam, they'll most likely pass the Duchy upon the left hand side.

I wish they could have done this when I lived an hour away. I used to have to drive 5 hours to Amsterdam.

You might want to learn some geography. No one has to go through Holland to get anywhere.

Not even close. Lichtenstein is far more boring.

I'm not an expert or anything but I think if you really want some marijuana you can find it - in almost any country in the world.

I think legalization just means that consumers have more varieties to choose from and there might be legal regulations to test the potency and make sure it isn't covered in toxic pesticides while it's growing.

One of my exchange students went to college there.  I asked her about it, apparently the school is famously difficult, like MIT our something and she said she didn't have time to eat, let alone party.

I haven't been there, but I can imagine. They kinda have the same vibe.

I'd definetly go to San Marino or Andorra before, if visiting a mini state. In fact, I think they'd both be very interesting!

Monaco is probably piss boring as well.

Interestingly, the city of Thionville is right next to Luxembourg (also the Luxembourg city), and is very interesting. I lived there for 2 weeks after Luxembourg. Curiously its also a wealthy city, due to its vicinity to Luxembourg, I assume, really, that people from Luxembourg spend their money in Thionville, I know I would.

I always liked the Villeroy and Boch outlet store there.
