Set in natural and green surroundings, Luxembourg City, the capital of the country has been marked by centuries of history and shaped by tradition and modernity. The old city of Luxembourg and its fortress around the Grand Ducal Palace have been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1994. The historical, medieval, classical and contemporary styles come together like nowhere else. The remains of the centuries-old fortifications are among the many tourist attractions in Europe, called the Casemates with 17 km of underground tunnels. The Corniche offers panoramic views of the historic sites and the surrounding valleys of this unique city, which is often referred to as the “Gibraltar of the North”. On Kirchberg you will find the Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM), which was designed by the Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei and the “Drai Eechelen” Museum, which is housed in the Fortress and illustrates the millenary history of the city and the country.
