Luxembourg is a small country between Belgium, France, and Germany.
The capital city, also known as Luxembourg, is known for its fortified medieval ruins, dense forests, plateaus, valleys, canyons, and an old town perched on sheer cliffs.
The country is divided into two regions.:
1. Ville Haute (High City) for amusement parks and Vieille Ville (Old Town)
2. Ville Basse (Low City) is home to all the tourist attractions: Castles, canals and forests.
Built in the middle ages, Luxembourg leaves you mesmerised by its charm and quiet beauty with remnants of its medieval past.
