Bienvenue! Willkommen! Welcome!

Don't be surprised if you are welcomed in your own language when you arrive in Luxembourg, but you may also get a cheery "moien" in Luxembourgish. Multilingual, with an open spirit and excellent means of communication, our capital is a privileged place of welcome.

Over the course of time, the city of Luxembourg has evolved from a fortified city into a metropolis with a cosmopolitan style – so much so that today, with its 100,000 inhabitants, the capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg enjoys an international reputation that reaches far beyond its demographic and geographic size. Thus, at the dawn of its third millennium, the City vigorously reasserts its position as a modern capital city resolutely facing the future – as can be seen in the establishment of a number of key European Union institutions. In addition to its European role, Luxembourg has proudly become an international financial centre and therefore numbers among the principal players in European finance. Situated at the crossroads of Latin and Germanic cultures, Luxembourg city offers an extremely varied and stimulating cultural life..

By visiting the fascinating city, you will discover a hybrid city, which is proud of its turbulent history, spanning over a thousand years. Burgundians, Spanish, French, Austrians and Prussians contributed to make the city one of the best fortified in the world, the "Gibraltar of the North". In 1994 the UNESCO recognized the fortress and the historical importance of the city by naming them a World Heritage Site.

Culture plays a vital role in Luxembourg life. The arts, classic and contemporary, music, theatre, entertainment of every kind: this multi-cultural environment is bursting with opportunities. There is never a dull moment; there is never a neglected corner, there is never a visitor who cannot find what he or she likes best.

In 2007 for the first time, the European Capital of Culture will be a region, and not only one town. but the Greater Region. Together with Luxembourg, the Lorraine (F), the Rhineland-Palatinate (D), the Saarland (D) and the Walloon Region (B) will present their cultural diversity and their creative potential as European Capital of Culture.

Experience European variety, culture and history and come to Luxembourg!

With numerous daily flights from London to Luxembourg, we look forward to welcome you to the heart of Europe.
