Luxembourg City is the capital city of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and one of three de facto capitals of the European Union. The city’s history is traced to 963, when Count Siegfried of the Ardennes built his “small castle” there. Throughout its history, Luxembourg was occupied or controlled by Burgundy, France, Spain, Austria, Prussia and Germany. Since its liberation on September 10, 1944, Luxembourg has maintained its autonomy as an independent state and as a center of European cooperation.
