Schengen, Luxembourg, located 25 mi/40 km southeast of Luxembourg City, is known for the 1985 signing of the Schengen treaty, which abolished border controls on people and goods in Schengen countries. This Moselle town is also the southern start point of the Route du Vin, or wine trail.
Spend an hour walking the esplanade and seeing the Schengen treaty monument. Since the town is in the far southeast corner of Luxembourg, bits of both France and Germany are just a short walk across the bridge.
