(Grand Duchy Of Luxembourg)
Luxembourg is located in Western Europe and owes it's prosperity to excellent transport links with the Rhineland and Paris. It is bordered by Germany to the east, France to the south and Belgium to the west.
The northern third of the country forms part of the plateau of the Ardennes - forested and hilly terrain with steep-sided river valleys. The southern region is much flatter and is a continuation of the Lorraine in France. The total land area is 2585 sq km (998 sq miles).
The Population of 422,000 (2000 figure) comprises 63% native Luxembourgers and 37% immigrant workers, mainly from Italy and Portugal. Some 97% of the people are Roman Catholics and 3% other faiths. The capital city is Luxembourg.
