Hotels – Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, an Introduction

The country of Luxembourg was founded as a fortress by Sigefroid, Count of Ardennes back in 963AD, and since then the country is now home to one of Europe’s key financial and political centres, the wealthy city of Luxembourg.

In terms of politics, Luxembourg has had a considerably rocky ride to reach its independence. Its bordering nations have long had their eye on it and as a result the country has passed through the hands of Burgundy, Spain, France, Austria and Prussia.

The magnificent historical fortifications that surround Luxembourg are now classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO.

Luxembourg’s relatively small size has resulted in a capital unlike any other throughout the EU. The city is full of charm which is expressed by the local people who are justifiably proud of their city.

The city of Luxembourg is an excellent starting spot to being your adventure. The city itself is split on into two into to districts. The “old centre”, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, is rich with its fortress towers, turrets and winding, cobblestone streets.

Then there is the more modern downtown district, which has been dubbed an “international financial hub”, with its many successfully business, shopping centres and hotels.

Moving out of the capital and you will really get to experience what the country has to offer with picturesque landscape of rolling hills and valleys, many of which are resettled with holiday cottages.
