Whoever thinks of Luxemburg, thinks of the well-known court of the Grand Duke, of the relaxed radio and television programme of Radio Luxemburg (RTL) or of the German prom’s tax heaven. Less well-known is the beautiful scenery of this small state in the middle of Europe. Luxemburg shares three natural areas: in the largely virgin north lie the idyllic river valleys of the Ösling, with its lush forests stretching to the northwest as far as the Belgian Ardennes. Farther to the south, Luxemburg’s most important wine-growing area extends along the Moselle: the local vines, especially the dry Riesling, are being praised by specialists. Luxemburg’s central and southern areas, fertile with the Alzette flowing through, is named Gutland.
