The Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the most prosperous economies in Europe. As one of the leading world financial centres and seat of the European institutions, it is characterised by a very stable political environment and its exemplary economic and social development.
Located in the verdant cityscape of one of Luxembourg's most spectacular residential areas, the unimpressive fa- 
cade of this unique townhouse hides a world apart.
Overlooking the Pétrusse Valley Park and the historical 'Grund' quarter, the property is centrally located and close
to all the facilities that the city has to offer.
The Grund elevator (a five-minute walk) takes you straight into the city center. The Central Station (offering a high
speed train-connection (TGV) to Strasbourg and Paris), is at a ten-minute walk and Luxembourg's airport is at 15 minutes drive. The next bus stop, part of the well developed public transportation network, is a two-minute walk away.
The numerous bars, restaurants and nightclubs of the Grund-, Clausen- and Gare-Quarter, as well as the center of
the Old Town, offer entertainment and amusement for every taste. The cultural events (concerts, theater and exhibitions...) in the Neumünster Abbey and the surrounding Museums, offer a cultural variety that suits all tastes and ages.
