Luxembourg has a strong cultural heritage from its rich history and the diverse flows of invasion and immigration. As part of this heritage are three officially recognized languages: French, German, and Luxembourgish. In addition, the two largest and well integrated immigrant communities, Portuguese and Italian, have brought their respective languages.
This mixture of nationalities and culture is reflected into museums, restaurants, the arts and major events and manifestations.
In 1995 and again in 2007, Luxembourg was named European Capital of Culture. The goal was to promote mobility and the exchange of ideas across borders.
