As a location to live in, Luxembourg has many things to offer. There are several notable museums, more Michelin Stars per capita than any city in the world and Luxembourg was the first city to be named European Capital of Culture twice. The scenery witnessed around Luxembourg ranges from the highlands and valleys in the northern Ardennes, which provides endless snow sports possibilities, to the ancient forested landscape to the east. The picturesque town of Viaden is a popular tourist attraction and lies just a short trip north of Luxembourg City and in the southeast lies the Moselle Valley with its steep vineyards and riverside hamlets. In between all this are rolling farmlands dotted with pristine, pastel-toned houses and medieval hilltop castle.
