Explore Europe Luxembourg Podcast Episode Show Notes

Surrounded by France, Belgium and Germany, Luxembourg is it’s one of the worlds smallest countries yet its packed with medieval charm. The capital, Luxembourg City, has a fairy-tale quality thanks to its beautiful old town perched on top of sheer cliffs with incredible views across deep gorges where the rivers pass through the Ardenne forest. 

Luxembourg is so close to the KMC that you really have to get out there and explore this extraordinary city for yourself.
