Luxembourg Travel Guide
The area is famous for being part of the Ardenes, scene of the Battle of the Bulge in 1944/45. The southern two thirds of the country are dominated by farmland, vineyards, rolling hills and patches of forest, with the Moselle Valley to the east. The capital, Luxembourg City is situated in the central south region, built on a rock overlooking the Alzette and Petreusse Valleys. Northeast of the City is the Mullerthal region referred to locally as ‘Little Switzerland’. The 4 most important rivers are the Alzette, Our, Sure and Moselle, the latter having been canalised in 1964 to link the Luxembourg to larger European waterways. Climatically there is precious little variation both regionally and seasonally and it remains mild for most of the year.
