Luxembourg District


This ditrict is the south western corner of the small country. It is located towards France but still most of the inhabitants speak Lëtzebuergesch. It contains the Captal city of Luxembourg, and various industrial areas along the southern borders, were former iron ore mining created some wealth. This is the "richest" district of the country which has the highest per capita income.

There are various impressive casemats, which can be visited in the Capital. The southern border is more interesting from the geologic view. The iron mining was an important reason for war during the wars of the 20th century. Geologically the same iron was also mined on the other side of the border in France. Some say there are even underground connections between the mines and it is possible to travel underground for 50km between Rumelange and Metz.
