The Tourist Attractions of Schifflange:
As with the rest of Luxembourg, Schifflange is only a small town and commune with a population of less than 10,000 people. As you can imagine, with so few people living here full time Schifflange doesn’t have an abundance of services and facilities, or things for tourists to see and do. On the other hand, because Luxembourg is so small it’s easy to get from one town to another and see the whole country in just a matter of days. As Schifflange is in the south west corner of the country you can use this as a base for heading north and exploring everything else that Luxembourg has to offer.
Schifflange itself was founded in 1871 when a steelworks was established here. Steel is one of the main industries of Luxembourg, so this meant Schifflange became an important place for the country’s economy.
