The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg may be small, but it is very diverse. Beautiful landscapes ranging from moutains to creeks, hills and valleys, historic monuments, castles, fortresses and quaint villages.

The capital city, Luxembourg, is set high on a cliff, offering spectacular views. There are several places in the old town that are on the UNESCO list of Heritage Sites. One of the most interesting places to visit is the Notre Dame Cathedral.

A visit to the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial should be on every traveler's list, along with the George Patton Museum.
