Discover the magic of Luxembourg with this homage to the country’s rich history, diverse culture, and beautiful landscapes.
 
Steeped in history, the small baroque country of Luxembourg is one of the few remaining hidden treasures of Europe. With a 1,000-year-old heritage, including the old city fortifications and ruins that are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this landlocked nation—best known as a center for banking and telecommunications—offers a surprisingly rich diversity of natural wonders.
 
This volume leads the reader through Luxembourg’s picturesque countryside, unveiling the nation’s fascinating history, culture, and geography, and includes a detailed guide to the best cultural, gastronomic, and historical experiences, along with an agenda of annual events and festivities.

Praise For…


"This luscious look at a too often unheralded landscape reveals the holdovers of a heritage 1,000 years in the making, including UNESCO World Heritage Site ruins and ramparts. The landlocked Luxembourg, which shares a border with Germany, Belgium and France, is also one of the most picturesque places in Western Europe, where history, culture and nature form a fascinating pictorial of a country celebrating centuries of tradition through a variety of riches today."
