The city of Luxembourg, the thousand-year-old capital of the Grand Duchy, was founded in 963. Over the course of its history, Luxembourg has been occupied by Burgundians, Spaniards, French, Austrians and Prussians, all of whom contributed to making the city one of the best fortified in the world, the “Gibraltar of the North”.
