At the heart of Europe:
What does Luxembourg have to offer?
Luxembourg is situated in the heart of Europe and is one of the founding members of the European Union. Luxembourg City is one of the administrative centres of the European Union, along with Brussels and Strasbourg. Over 600,000 people live in Luxembourg with around half of the population having moved to Luxembourg from other countries. This contributes to the Grand Duchy’s unique cosmopolitan flair and cultural diversity.
Cosmopolitan and diverse
Luxembourg is renowned for its international importance in the financial sector. However, this small country has also achieved great things outside of the banking field. Luxembourg City is the first city to have been named a European Capital of Culture twice. Its cosmopolitan attitude is reflected in its multilingualism. German and French are the official languages alongside Luxembourgish, and most Luxembourgers understand and speak English.
Around 170 nationalities live together peacefully in Luxembourg: According to a 2019 survey conducted by Mercer, the Grand Duchy’s capital ranks in first place as the world’s safest city. The country welcomes around 220,000 cross-border commuters every day. Tourists love Luxembourg’s diverse countryside, such as the Valley of the Seven Castles, the Ardennes and the Miller’s Valley, known locally as Luxembourg’s little Switzerland.
