Nestled between the rolling hills of the Ardennes in Belgium and the Eifel National Park in Germany, Luxembourg is a small yet dynamic city with a cosmopolitan vibe. Its charming old town and the various plateaus, cliffs and hills the city is built on have earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and it’s home to a host of restaurants, museums and other attractions that are just waiting to be discovered.
