Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe, and ranked 175th in size of all 194 independent countries of the world. Luxembourg is a founding member of the European Union, NATO, the United Nations, Benelux, and the Western European Union, reflecting the political consensus in favour of economic, political, and military integration. The city of Luxembourg, the capital and largest city, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the European Union.


Luxembourg City is one of the wealthiest cities in the whole world, having developed into a banking and also into a administrative centre. Luxembourg is a seat of several institutions of the European Union, including the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Auditors, and the European Investment Bank.

When Luxembourg’s founder laid the city’s first stone back in the tenth century, he chose his spot carefully. Sigefroid, as he was known, decided to perch his fortress on a daunting rock, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s most impregnable towns. Nowadays the city’s warlike history has given way to a more relaxed, cosmopolitan present, and, as a visitor there, you will be joined by many of Europe’s business and political elite.
