Small country, big variety!
Luxembourg entices visitors with variety and diversity! The multicultural, modern capital city that dates back a thousand years; five tourist regions with their own special charms; and not forgetting four sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List – and that’s just for starters. The Grand Duchy has a lot to offer across its 2,586 km². Certified high-quality hiking routes and thrilling mountain-bike trails also make the country very appealing to outdoor adventurers.
Although Luxembourg City has experienced breathtakingly fast modernisation in the last few decades, the nation’s capital remains a metropolis on a human scale. Despite counting only 125,000 souls, people from over 170 different countries call it their home, treasuring the community spirit in the green, fortified city that dates back over a millennium.
The historic old town stands out through its striking topography between the upper and lower parts. It is very close to the Grand Ducal Palace, while its impressive fortifications and unique underground casemates make it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meanwhile, the European quarter is characterised by its larger-than-life contemporary buildings, under which stand the popular Philharmonie and Mudam, the Contemporary Art Museum, designed by I. M. Pei. The best way to get to know the city is by going on one of its many walking tours.
