Luxembourg – The Capital City and its Surroundings

Well preserved fortifications and numerous parks accentuate the appearance of the Grand Duchy’s capital city of Luxembourg – a city renowned for being a leading financial center and the seat of important European institutions. The city’s deep valley along the Alzette and Pétrusse rivers creates a striking contrast, for it separates the different quarters of Luxembourg while at the same time serving as a point of attraction for many cultural events. To the west of Luxembourg lies the Eisch Valley, also referred to as the “Valley of the Seven Castles” (for good reason).

 Land of the Red Earth

The southernmost part of Luxembourg – the Minette (region) – is characterized by its mining heritage and the red color of the soil from underground iron ore deposits. Today, the region’s dynamism and multiculturalism is leading it to a new path. Visitors to the Fond-de-gras open air industrial and railroad museum should make it a point not to miss Luxembourg’s most important archaeological site on Titelberg hill. The Celtic Treveri built an oppidum (settlement) here during the 1st century BC.
