European history was written here in the border triangle Luxembourg, France and Germany. On board the MS Princesse Marie-Astrid representatives from Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany signed the Schengen Agreement on June 14th, 1985.
The agreement was one of the major steps towards a unified Europe and the abolishment of inner-European border controls between the signing countries. Schengen is considered the cradle of a borderless Europe: travelling without border formalities from one country to another, be it by foot, by bike, or by car.
