Luxembourg, located at the crossroads of important routes between the rivers Moselle and the Meuse, has always been an important economic and strategic area. Despite the many changes in the political status of Luxembourg retained its face and gained independence.

Today it is a major center of international finance, the second in Europe after London in the number of banks (220). Agriculture occupies a secondary place in the economy, dominated by animal husbandry, development of viticulture and winemaking. The important role tourism plays in the national economy.

Historical Luxembourg exceeded the current borders of the Grand Duchy, it consisted of the same name as the province of Belgium and the small areas of neighboring countries. Now the country is a “triangle” (2586 square kilometers) in the heart of Western Europe, bordered by France, Belgium and Germany.

In General, Luxembourg is an collection of ancient castles, abbeys, fortresses and monasteries, caves, chapels, sculptures and ruins of the ancient buildings. It seems that this country remains in a different era, despite the high contemporary standard of living. In the capital and in the territory of the Principality is a huge number of different themed museums. They collected cultural and historical objects that were saved after the many wars in these lands.

Luxembourg is isolated as one of the best countries for Hiking. The area is literally criss-crossed by narrow lanes: forest, mountain and along the river — very comfortable and picturesque, which form a number of routes. Getting lost here is quite difficult: almost every step there are various pointers which are printed on special cards, and they can be purchased in any bookstore.
