Luxembourg

Wedged closely between Germany, France and Belgium, Luxembourg City is the capital of Luxembourg the country – a small but economically important European state known for its relaxed taxation and prosperity. As a city, it's postcard picturesque – a historic old town perches dramatically on a clifftop, overlooking rows of colorful houses curved around the river below. Beyond the core, tourist attractions and modern architecture complement a major financial sector.
