History
Luxembourg's potentially perilous position between France and Germany led to the major European powers declaring the country neutral in 1867. As a result much of its historic fortifications were dismantled.

Luxembourg’s neutrality was quashed in 1914 when Germany invaded. It was occupied for the whole of WWI and again during WWII.

After the war, Luxembourg dumped its neutral status and joined NATO and the EU. The government diversified the economy, enabling the little country to ride out the depression in the iron and steel industries during the 1970s and to become a noted financial center and tax haven.

Now home to some key EU institutions, it entered the 21st century with one of Europe’s healthiest economies and continues to ride high.
Luxembourg lies on the cultural divide between
Romance Europe

and

Germanic Europe
, borrowing customs from each of the distinct traditions.

Luxembourg is a trilingual country;
French

German
, and
Luxembourgish
are official languages.
