The Old City – A UNESCO World Heritage

Luxembourg is a modern, cosmopolitan city with a rich historic past. Because of its strategic position between the Kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire, the fortress of Luxembourg became one of the most important fortified sites in Europe between the 16th century and 1867, the date of its demolition. Reinforced on several occasions during handovers from one great European power to the next, its fortifications present an overview of military architecture spanning several centuries.

The military and civil edifices define the architectural framework of the Old City, which was added to the UNESCO world heritage list in 1994. The path of the ramparts (corniche), the casemates and the thematic itineraries like the Wenzel Circular, as well as other wonders such as the Musée National Drai Eechelen and the military structures conserved in public parks and paths, make this world heritage worth discovering.
