Luxembourg is a tiny country in the heart of Western Europe, rich in rivers and natural forest.

The capital city has a fortified medieval town set high up on rocky cliffs. Catacombs in the cliff look out over the valley beneath, where the River Alzette meanders around picturesque buildings.

Luxembourg has a royal family and is ruled by a Grand Duke. It is the richest country in the European Union, and a popular location for expats. Nearly 50% of Luxembourg’s population are foreign nationals. Thousands of people also commute to work in Luxembourg every day from neighbouring countries, across open borders with France, Belgium and Germany.

Luxembourg’s three official languages are French, German and Luxembourgisch, and English is widely known. I have good friends in Luxembourg and have visited the country more times than I can count.
