A welcoming country and birthplace of freedom of movement

Excursion ½ day

The Luxembourgish Moselle remembers

A half-day trip to the Moselle region will reveal several unexpected aspects of the Grand Duchy’s history. National borders and migration are major contemporary themes, and Luxembourg has a proud history promoting openness. This has long been a country in which people have escaped political oppression. Luxembourg also played an important role in the creation of a borderless Europe. This just one example of how it contributed to the rebuilding of Europe after World War II. Another is the fact that the Nuremberg trials which brought Nazi war criminals to justice were prepared in Mondorf-les-Bains.

This itinerary takes you to the spa town of Mondorf-les-Bains, which has an extraordinary and largely unknown history. The trip also includes Schengen, a village in the wine region which has come to represent freedom of movement for 400 million people in 26 European countries. Then there is Remich and Grevenmacher, two charming towns surrounded by vineyards. Yet this charming modern reality is set against a dark history of Jewish residents deported and killed by the occupying Nazis.
