Don’t be deceived by the size of this beautiful country. Spanning just under 1000 square miles, Luxembourg is the second richest country in the world, pays the highest minimum wage, is one of the least populated of all EU states; and is one of the safest! It is also the only Grand Duchy remaining in the world, run since October 2000 by Grand Duke Henri.
Luxembourg is landlocked between Belgium, France and Germany in the heart of western Europe. It boasts spectacular landscapes, including rich dense forests, rivers and lakes, natural parks and green areas that are enjoyed by the residents and tourists alike. The wine regions along the Moselle river in the east provide an opportunity to pair ‘Dégustations’ (tastings) with incredible views, the country has hundreds of miles of walking and cycling routes to be explored; and the city has 8 Michelin stared restaurants and more than 1500 restaurants and cafe’s for foodies to enjoy.
The population of Luxembourg has exceeded 600,000 and is home to more than 170 nationalities, the largest community is Portuguese. More than 100,000 additional people commute in from the neighbouring countries. Property is cheaper across the boarders which make it an attractive prospect, but congestion at peak times can significantly increase commute times. To encourage people to live in the country or leave cars at the boarders, the country is making all public transport FREE from March 2020!
The country’s administration is extremely family friendly, investing in amazing children’s play areas across the country, plus, they host lots of events throughout the year that are suitable for all ages and budgets.
