Typical luxembourgish, Luxembourg: 13 reviews and 11 photos

 
 

Luxembourg was a fortress city, captured in 1443 by the Dukes of Burgundy. Then in 1839 the Grand Duchy was born, thanks to William II, King of Holland and Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Since then, the Grand Duke has always officially resided in the city of Luxembourg. Hence also that the national flag is almost identical to the Dutch flag, save the shade of blue which is lighter.
