illustrated and carefully researched book is an invitation to take a
journey through this most sensual region in the Grand Duchy, through
the world of wine growers, cellar masters, lock keepers and barge-captains.
The authors (Joseph Colbach for the text and Rob Kieffer for the photographs)
spent time both in earthy ancient cellars containing doughty wooden
casks, and in pristine modern cellars with their shining stainless steel.
For a full year, they followed the Moselle wine growers' work. One of
the most charming areas of Luxembourg and its wines are presented in
all their diversity
countless books on the City of Luxembourg, but until now there has been
no volume representing the Capital of the Grand Duchy in such an original
and indeed unusual manner as "The City of Luxembourg: Excursions and
Impressions". Author Georges Hausemer and photographer Rob Kieffer are
not content simply to take the usual well-trodden paths, along the fortress
walls, now in the UNESCO World Heritage List, and the cobbled alleys
of the old part of the city, or past the magnificent buildings on the
Bourbon Plateau or the banking and finance centre. They have looked
behind the curtains, talked with its inhabitants, and thereby discovered
a City of one thousand and one faces. In Pfaffenthal they attended a
belly-dancing evening and a rehearsal for "Sang a Klang". They watched
airline pilots undergoing training, and accompanied a bicycle courier
on his perilous errands. They climbed with the verger to the highest
point on the cathedral tower, visited the synagogue to be taught the
meaning of the Thora and explored the crypt of the Protestant church.
Banks and Architecture
Luxembourg is one of Europe's most important financial centres and at the same time its smallest capital. The banks and financial institutions have left their mark on Luxembourg's architecture and skyline.
Among more than 200 banks, Marc Theis shows the most significant exterior and interior views in order to illustrate the great architectural variety.

A Photographic Journey by Hot Air Balloon
Probably no other country, in proportion to its size, has such a dynamic hot air ballooning scene than Luxembourg, which hosted the 12th European Championships in the year 2000.
For a full year, the photographer Rob Kieffer accompanied a balloon team on its many journeys above the Grand Duchy. He pictured all those spectacular and distinctive views which would so fascinate both enthusiasts of ballooning and of photography.
