Luxembourg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a small sovereign state situated in Western Europe, bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. Luxembourg has a population of just over half a million people in an area of ​​approximately 2586 km².
Being a representative parliamentary democracy with a Grand Duke as constitutional monarch, Luxembourg is the only remaining Grand Duchy.
Its historical and strategic importance goes back to its foundation, as a Roman fortress in the early Middle Ages. It was an important Spanish bastion along the road when Spain was the leading European power influencing the entire western hemisphere and beyond the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Luxembourg is a founding member of the European Union, NATO, OECD, UN, Benelux and Western European Union, reflecting the political consensus in favor of economic cohesion, politics and military integration. The city of Luxembourg, the capital and largest city, is home to several institutions and bodies of the European Union.
Luxembourg is at the meeting point between Romanesque Europe and Germanic Europe, employing customs from each of the different traditions. Luxembourg is a trilingual country, where German, French and Luxembourgish are official languages. Although it is a secular state, the predominant religion in the country is Catholicism.
Official language
French, German and Luxembourgish
Documents required to visit Luxembourg
Visitors residing in the European Union do not need a tourist visa or a passport, simply the national identification card of the country of residence.
All others must have:
Passport: A passport with a validity of at least six months from the date of shipment must be presented.
Visa: For visitors from some non-European Union countries they do not need a visa to visit France, provided that the stay can not exceed the limit of three months in French territory or in the European Union countries that are signatories to the Schengen Convention (Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Iceland and France).
In the capital is the Grand Ducal Palace, a beautiful palace located next to Place Guillaume, the main square of the city with its open-air market and the City Hall building. The Church of Notre Dame may not be as famous as the French homonym but retains the charm of a building that was built in the 17th century. The Wenzel route, a walk through the capital's ancient blocks, promises a journey of a thousand years in just a hundred minutes. Anyone who enjoys hiking will also love the Chemin de La Corniche, promenade that takes the visitor to a breathtaking view of the city. The oldest part of the city's fortress are the Casemates, tunnels and stone corridors that have served as refuge in conflicts throughout history. In the interior of the country, the only language in the world whose official language is Luxembourgish, a language spoken by little more than 300 thousand people, the landscapes mix closed forests, rivers and castles.
The cuisine of Luxembourg reflects the position of Luxembourg between the Latin and Germanic worlds, being based on the cuisine of neighbors France, Belgium and Germany. Recently it has been influenced by the various Italian and Portuguese immigrants present in the country. As in Germany, Luxembourg's most traditional daily dishes are of peasant origin, in marked contrast to the sophisticated French preparations.
