A rich history, diverse culture, great food and even better wine – all this and more will wait for you when you visit the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Located in western Europe, this city-state is rapidly becoming one of the must-visit tourist destinations on the continent. 

The small town of Echternach, near the German border, is an ideal place to escape from the hustle of the city. In the center of the town you can see a fantastic medieval abbey from the 7th century. A few steps further you can find a small lake with ideal surroundings for a picnic.

If you are more of a nature enthusiast, head towards Milertal (Mullertahl).  This part of Luxembourg is also known as “little Switzerland.” The hiking trails through Milertal are 112 kilometers long and along the way you can see breathtaking waterfalls, sharp rock formations and dense forests.  

Vianden Castle is among the most beautiful Romanesque palaces in Europe, and it was once home to the powerful counts of Vianden. It was also the seat of the Nassau Luxembourg dynasty until it became state-owned and open to the public. It is located in the small town of Vianden, where you can also find a museum dedicated to Victor Hugo.
