Hotel du Parc


The station of Diekirch, a town in the middle of Luxembourg on the banks of the Sauer, had the air of an industrial town in Northern England in the early sixties. One could expect to see Hercule Poirot step out of the train each moment.
Diekirch is an excellent setting for a murder mystery or a perversity that got completely out of hand. Hotel du Parc in Diekirch, although I haven’t been inside, appeared to be the perfect hotel for a rendezvous filled with squalor and all too human desire.
Don’t wait too long. Life is short, for all your illegal love, Diekirch is the place.
