Destination Information for Luxembourg
The small country of Luxembourg is bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. Other than its capital, the famous medieval old town of Luxembourg City with its modern twist in the upmarket Kirchberg district, Luxembourg is mainly rural. The country boasts dense forest and national park in the North, with the Mullerthal region and Moselle river valley to the East and Southeast. Luxembourg is the wealthiest country in Europe and residents enjoy a high standard of living.
Due to its small size, it’s possible to reach most places in the country with an hour or less of travelling, making it the perfect destination for travellers who want to experience all that Luxembourg has to offer. Luxembourg City is situated high on a cliff, overlooking the valleys.
There’s lots to see in the city itself, with a number of good museums and memorials as well as the Grand Ducal Palace surrounded by cobbled streets. Hikers and mountain bikers will have plenty to explore, including the region known as Little Switzerland, rocky cliffs, paths and forests. Head to Northern Luxembourg for superb trekking opportunities in the Ardennes, with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside.
