The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has always drawn the attention of successive powers across the centuries – Burgundy, the Habsburgs, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, Prussia and Germany have all played a role – creating a cultural legacy that begs to be experienced.

The Capital, Luxembourg City, in itself is physically very dramatic. Very few cities in the world can claim the panoramic beauty that this double decker city has. It spreads out from its original fortification on the rocky outcrop known as the Bock, overlooking the rivers Alzette and Pétrusse, across the plateau and down on to the valley floor known as the Grund.
