Vacation in the heart of Europe: A holiday house in Luxembourg
A small but pretty country in the midst of Europe; often overlooked but always present: This is Luxembourg, the world’s last sovereign grand duchy. A holiday apartment or house in Luxembourg is ideal for families as this placid country is made for unhurried trips into nature and relaxed days in the countryside. Most holiday apartments and homes in Luxembourg are situated in holiday resorts with swimming pool as well as sports and leisure facilities.
Small country with international flair
From Germany it’s only a short hop to the small grand duchy which is situated between Belgium and France and which shares a border with Germany of nearly 135 kilometres. This location at the heart of the continent makes Luxembourg a centre of European politics and administration: The same-named capital houses important institutions such as the administrative centre of the EU, the administration of the EU Parliament and the European Court of Justice. Furthermore the grand duchy is notorious for its large number of bank branches with its customers enjoying tax privileges – all under the protection of the Grand Duke who mounts guard as head of state from his castle on both his city and country. The international flair offers guests of holiday apartments and houses in Luxemburg another advantage. The locals speak several languages: next to their mother tongue Luxembourgish they usually speak at least French and German. A characteristic of the country is the diverse landscape: It is shaped by rugged rocks, deep woods, tranquil villages and enchanted castles – Luxemburg seems a bit like a fairytale country. A good reason for renting a holiday house in Luxemburg, don’t you think?
Tourist attractions around holiday apartments and houses in Luxemburg
The beauty of the lovely country: From your holiday apartment or house in Luxembourg, as like for example in the canton Diekirch, it is never far to the highlights and sights of the grand duchy. And there are a lot. For example the nature park Obersauer in the foothills of the Luxemburgish Ardennes, which are also called Ösling. Here you can find the ruins of the country’s second largest fortress Bourscheid. Also worth a visit is the industrial park Fond-de-Gans, which used to be a centre for iron ore mining and is now used as a museum with a nostalgic steam train puffing through the former mining area. You can experience the idyllic scenery of Luxembourg best at the Moselle where vineyards, wine cellars and the Schengen Castle await you.
