City with exceptional universal value
Luxembourg is a city full of amazing contrasts: in addition to the remains of the fortifications and the historic buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries, there are also outstanding examples of contemporary architecture. In 1994, the old town quarters as well as the remains of the fortifications of Luxembourg City were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
UNESCO works worldwide to identify, protect and preserve natural and cultural heritage, as it is considered to be of outstanding importance to humanity.
Due to its strategic location, Luxembourg Fortress was one of the most important fortifications in Europe from the 16th century until its demolition in 1867. It was extended several times in the course of the successive great European powers (Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, the House of Burgundy, the Habsburgs, the Spanish and French crowns, and finally Prussia), and the fortification is thus a testimony to the military architecture of various centuries.
