Since the 25th anniversary of the inscription of the site “Luxembourg, old quarters and fortifications”, the Lëtzebuerg City Museum has hosted the UNESCO Visitor Centre:
Here, visitors and local residents can find out about the most important aspects of world heritage: the origins and importance of the site, its characteristics and criteria, its preservation and its integration into urban development.

The Visitor Centre provides an initial orientation for discovering the urban heritage listed by UNESCO.

Already in the times of the fortress, the roses grown on the fields of the City of Luxembourg and its surroundings were exported all over the world. Up to 10 million plants left the rose gardens of Luxembourg every year to bloom in the princely, royal and presidential parks, among others. Many rose varieties of the time bore the names of crowned heads of state, presidents, celebrities, as well as members of rose-growing families.

Organized by “Patrimoine Roses pour le Luxembourg” asbl, its president, Dr Claudine Als, presents the rich history and fascinating anecdotes about the cultivation of roses in Luxembourg.
