Although rooted in northern European culture, Luxembourg's diverse, multinational population bundles the sights, sounds and tastes from every corner of every continent. Set on a dramatic horseshoe-shaped valley, Luxembourg City has a uniquely attractive feel steeped in history, setting it apart from other small-sized cities. In fact, the so-called “Gibraltar of the North” is a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Out in the countryside, nature lovers will appreciate the opportunities offered by the Ardennes forests and the country's rivers. Business travellers surrender to Luxembourg's quality hotels and its unique facilities for business meetings, seminars and conferences.
A vibrant and varied cultural life further provides entertainment and enlightenment for every taste. Music lovers are served well: from classical music performed at the world class Philharmonie to international super groups and emerging stars of popular music at the Rockhal, to name but the two biggest top-notch venues. Award-winning museums showcase artistic and historical treasures, whilst a variety of theatres stage plays in an impressive array of languages. Added to this, numerous cultural and entertainment events are staged throughout the year including open air concerts, parties and seasonal markets and fairs. Whilst there are more Michelin-starred restaurants per capita than anywhere else, there is also a wide choice of more basic good cooking. Connoisseurs know of Luxembourg's specialisation in high-quality, limited quantity Moselle wines.
Added to this, the country is reputed for its high living standards and low crime rates. In fact, in studies on global quality of life Luxembourg regularly ranks among the top positions.
So whether you are coming to Luxembourg for a weekend, a year or a lifetime, you will surrender to its spell.
