Despite Luxembourg City's relatively small size, it offers a wealth of cultural offerings – making it no wonder that it has twice been named European Capital of Culture (1995 and 2007). Its long list of municipal cultural institutions contributes to its wide appeal: the Grand Théâtre and Théâtre des Capucins, Lëtzebuerg City Museum and Villa Vauban, Cinémathèque, Photothèque, Cité Bibliothèque, Cercle Cité, Municipal Archives and Conservatoire. These are joined by a rich variety of museums and art centres, galleries and independent stages, and last but not least: the Philharmonie, an internationally renowned concert hall. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Luxembourg City's Old Town and fortifications provide a spectacular backdrop for a range of open-air events, and a unique contrast its many modern architectural jewels.
