With the motto ‘we want to remain what we are’ and an unyielding spirit, the tiny nation of Luxembourg has proudly stood between France, Germany and Belgium for over 200 years. With the constant threat of losing both the country’s cultural identity and independence to its neighbours, it’s incredible that Luxembourg has been one of the most active supporters of the EU initiative. While it may be one of the smallest countries in Europe, it’s easy to see that Luxembourg has a personality that’s larger than life.
Visitors who’re are curious about what makes Luxembourg so unique should make sure to visit both the metropolitan capital of Luxembourg City as well as the quiet countryside which promises a rustic getaway. The best time to visit the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as it is officially named, is around the end of June when the weather is at its best and you can make the most of the national celebrations. If you’re looking for an interesting alternative destination to the usual European countries then Luxembourg is the perfect choice.
