A LITTLE CITY WITH A BIG HEART. Luxembourg is Europe’s best kept secret.

The capital of one of the world’s smallest countries is a vibrant, dynamic city nestled within romantic, peaceful countryside that gives it plenty of natural space to breathe. Luxembourg’s visitors tend to focus on its rich history but today’s city is a modern, open, friendly place that has embraced the opportunities of high-tech life without losing its soul.

Luxembourg’s multilingual character is reflected in its variety of exciting stage productions in Luxembourgish, French, German, Dutch and English.
