The capital of one of the world’s smallest countries is a vibrant, dynamic city nestled within a romantic, peaceful countryside that gives it plenty of natural space to breathe. The city is a modern, open and friendly place that has embraced the opportunities of high-tech life without losing its soul. Home to a number of EU institutions, Luxembourg is a capital with a human dimension. It is an international hub – people from 150 different countries now call it home – where major global corporate names have come to take advantage of cutting-edge technological expertise. Luxembourg has twice been honored as European Capital of Culture and it buzzes with artistic creativity such as the music, dance and theatre performances. Its ancient fortresses, dating from the 9th century, still remain and are now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
