A little city with a big heart
Luxembourg is Europe’s bestkept secret. The capital of one of the world’s smallest countries is a vibrant, dynamic city nestled within romantic, peaceful countryside that gives it plenty of natural space to breathe. Luxembourg’s visitors tend to focus on its rich history but today’s city is a modern, open, friendly place that has embraced the opportunities of high-tech life without losing its soul.
It is also a capital with a very human dimension. From small café bars to Michelin-starred restaurants, the city enjoys the best in gastronomy alongside a lively and diverse cultural scene including a number of popular outdoor festivals throughout the year. It buzzes with artistic creativity such as the music, dance and theatre performances at the Grand Théâtre and the state-of-the-art Philharmonie.
The city also boats a number of museums highlighting art, history and nature while the vestiges of its ancient fortress, still remain and are now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Luxembourg is very much a city of contrasts: a city among green countryside, a high-tech centre amid centuries-old history, a truly international hub with a local traditional feel.
