Maps of Luxembourg

Physical Map of Luxembourg showing terrain, highest and lowest points, major rivers draining the country, important cities, international boundaries, etc.

Luxembourg, one of Europe's smallest nations, has an area of only 2,586 sq. km (998 sq mi). 

It is a landlocked country of thick, green forests that cover rolling hills and low mountains. 

As can be observed on the physical map of Luxembourg, the country is divided into two regions, Oesling and Gotland. 

The northern region, (Oesling) is a ridged plateau, with land that suffers from bad soil composition, and remains (for the most part) unproductive.

Slicing across the northern border with Belgium are the Andrennes (low mountains), while the southern region of Gotland is blessed with fertile soil and nourishing rivers.

Luxembourg's highest point, Burgplatz, stands at 1,843 ft. (559m). A yellow upright triangle marks its position on the map. The lowest point (marked by an inverted triangle) is located at the confluence of Sauer and Moselle Rivers, in Wasserbillig and is 129.9 m above sea level.

Many rivers criss-cross the country. Important rivers include the Alzette, Eisch, Moselle, Our and Sure. The largest lake is Haute Sure.
