Luxembourg is a small European country located between Belgium, France, and Germany. This landlocked country is known for its rolling hills, forests, and many rivers. The topography of Luxembourg is diverse, with the highest elevation being 559 meters at the top of Buurgplaatz in the Oesling region. The average elevation throughout Luxembourg is 350 meters. While much of the country can be found at this elevation or higher, there are some low-lying areas such as the Moselle Valley where the minimum elevation is just 86 meters.
A distinctive feature of Luxembourg is that it has an incredibly large number of castles and fortresses scattered across its landscape. With more than one hundred fortifications built during medieval times to protect against invaders, these ruins are a popular tourist attraction for those visiting Luxembourg.
