Luxembourg: “Small is beautiful”.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a small, landlocked country covering just 2,586 square kilometers, with a population of just under half a million people. It is situated right at the heart of Western Europe, bordering Belgium, Germany and France.

But there’s more to Luxembourg than meets the eye.

It’s capital, Luxembourg city, is one of the wealthiest cities in the world for a start. It is a major and growing European centre for banking with over 150 credit institutions. What’s more, it’s also an administrative hub, home to the European Court of Justice and the European Investment Bank. Since 2007 Luxembourg has been linked by high-speed rail (the LGV Est) to Paris: the journey takes just 2h 05!

And it’s not just business that is thriving. Luxembourg is an extraordinary crossroads where different cultures have met to produce a rich and distinct heritage in its own right. There are beautiful old buildings to explore and striking landscapes to savour. Did you know that the city of Luxembourg has been the European Capital of Culture twice, in 1995 and 2007?

Or that it has more Michelin-starred restaurants per head than anywhere else in the world?

Don’t wait. Book your flight now.

    As a young adult I traveled Luxembourg on my bicycle and found the roads excellent! A memory and some photos remain: I have only changed planes to Duesseldorf there once in 1999! My ancestors have some been Luxembourgian!
    I see the remnants in a love for Luxembourg which is still on my list to visit some time soon to have a tour and eat well!
    My photography might be of help!
    My father was child to the Luxembourgian in our family! She went to live in Aachen. She is said to have fallen ill and was not helped for she had no income to pay for the bills her healing would have caused! This has changed: now she would have had equal treatement to her father in Luxembourg, a tradesman!
    She was a Barthel or Barthels, sister to her brother Barthel the architect in Aachen who built our home in Eupener Strasse, a well built complex for one family doing busines. Independent busines did demand not only some representation but also room, room for the children (5) and room for a seamstress upstairs who kept her grandson with her. The office was downstairs, the family, we lived upstairs in a appartement with closed door to the hallway, upstairs also storage; a seperate house was built for the wool samples seperate from the home for the family for hygiene and order as the garage was built for 2 cars, but only one was there! A home was built for Opa’s old age and he lived there until he died in the 70s. All has been sold and split in inheritance!
    Friedrich Barthel was from Luxembourg.
    His sister Milla lived with us until death! She was unmarried.
    This I wanted to tell you!
    Yours sincerely
    Ellen Luzy
