Luxembourg Area Code

+352 is the dialing code for Luxembourg.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is small on the surface but influential as a prosperous financial center and seat of several EU bodies and other international organizations. More than half of the workforce consists of foreign nationals. Many of them commute daily across the border to France, Germany or Belgium. The previously strict banking secrecy has been eased somewhat after criticism that the country is a haven for financial criminals.

Geography and climate

Luxembourg Area Code

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is on the surface somewhat smaller than Blekinge and measures at most eight kilometers, from north to south. The country that is wedged between Belgium, Germany and France consists of a hilly highland.

Luxembourg has two main areas. Ösling (Eislék in Luxembourg), the northern third, is a sparsely populated wooded mountain area belonging to the Ardennes. Gutland (Bon Pays in French, Guttland in Luxembourg, “the good country”) in the south is more varied and has better soils and pastures, which are cut by the rivers Our, Sauer and Moselle.

In the valleys, viticulture is conducted. Forests cover almost a third of the country’s area. Luxembourg lacks the coast but it is possible to reach the sea via the Moselle, which is a tributary to the Rhine.

The climate is mild and rainy, and the valleys along the rivers are suitable for viticulture. Ösling in the north is colder and richer in precipitation than Gutland in the south.
