Luxembourger's are a linguistic lot, having three official languages: French, German and Luxembourgish. English is also taught at schools as well.
Luxembourg is famous for its private banking services and many international companies have offices here attracted by its tax haven status.
Luxembourg is a seat of several institutions of the European Union, including the European Court of Auditors, the European Court of Justice and the European Investment Bank.
There is more to Luxembourg though than business, banking and bureaucrats.
Luxembourg's eponymously titled capital sits on either side of a valley that splits the city in two. The river Petrusse flows here, where it joins the river Alzette. Down in the valley is the quarter called Grund.
Above the valley is the old town, where the Hotel de Ville (Town Hall) can be found. Also here is the Notre Dame Cathedral. While it's not the grandest cathedral in Europe it is close to the Place de la Constitution lookout, which gives you a spectacular view of the city looking over the valley.
Cross the valley over Pont Adolphe and you travel down Avenue de la Liberte, which looks like Paris in miniature. This leads all the way to Place de la Gare where the train station is.
