World heritage site “Luxembourg, its old quarters and fortifications” was declared UNESCO world heritage on 17 December 1994. Its unique landscape features hills and valleys, forests and cliffs, and the Alzette and the Pétrusse. The impressive historical fortifications, towers and ramparts are also part of the site, and the old quarters of the upper town and the Grund show what life was like in a historical fortress town. Together they form a landscape that UNESCO has deemed an outstanding example of natural and human history.
