Luxembourg Geography

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

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).

Important rivers include the Alzette, Eisch, Moselle, Our and Sure. The largest lake is Haute Sure.
