Luxembourg Geography, Economy, and Culture

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a small, landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium, Germany, and France. A mix of French and German cultures, Luxembourg City (capital) is one of the official capitals of the European Union. The foreign-born makeup nearly half the country’s total population.

With one of the highest per-capita GDPs in the world, Luxembourg’s economy is one of the strongest in the world. It is also one of the world’s best performers in environmental protection and also ranks consistently highly in lists of the world’s most livable cities. Many large, high-tech companies such as Skype and Amazon, have built their regional headquarters there.

The official languages of the country are French, German and Luxembourgish, a Franconian language of the Moselle region. Proficiency in all three is a requirement for graduation from secondary school. In addition, English is also taught and most of the population can speak it.
