Luxembourg shares international borders with Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south. Luxembourg's geography offers two principal regions: the Oesling, part of the Ardennes massif, a hilly region with large deciduous forests in the north, and the Gutland ("good country"), the relatively urbanized region in the south.
With an area of 2586 km² (999 sqm), Luxembourg is more than 10 times smaller than neighboring Belgium, or slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Rhode Island.
The Grand Duchy has a population of 530.000 inhabitants (in 2015), capital and largest city is Luxembourg-City (Lëtzebuerg), with about 100.000 citizens. Spoken language is Luxembourgish, administrative languages are French, German, and Luxembourgish.
