- For most of the 19th century Luxembourg was part of the Netherlands. It gained independence in 1890 and is Europes last independent duchy.
- Luxembourgs capital is home to around 2000 investment funds and over 150 banks.

The small Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is entirely landlocked, bounded by Belgium in the west, Germany in the east and France in the south. The northern part of the country is a continuation of the forested hills of the Ardennes Plateau while the southern two-thirds of the country consists of undulating wooded farmland.
