Luxembourg City’s Old Town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994. Stroll along the Corniche – hailed as "Europe’s most beautiful balcony" – and enjoy the spectacular views. Visit the romantic Grund district or the subterranean casemates carved out of the rock of the Bock promontroy, which bear witness to Luxembourg’s past as a heavily defended stronghold.
The landscapes of the Minett region, in the south of the country, couldn’t be more different. The striking bright red colour of the region’s iron-rich rocks and soil immediately catches the eye. Fascinating traces of the region’s industrial heritage can be found. In 2020, in view of the fact that nature had begun to reclaim the industrial landscapes, the region was awarded with the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve label.
In Clervaux, you can also visit The Family of Man, the now legendary exhibition of photography curated by Edward Steichen, which was registered as a part of the UNESCO Memory of the World Heritage in 2003. This collection is an emotional document of peace and human equality.
The Mëllerdall UNESCO Global Geopark earned the popular hiking region of Mullerthal a UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2022. Its geological formations make it one of the most spectacular sandstone landscapes in Western Europe.
