Highest Points in Luxembourg

There is some controversy when it comes to documenting the highest point of LUXEMBOURG, a tiny monarchy in Western Europe. What cannot be disputed is the fact that the two commonly accepted highest points are located about 1.05 kilometers and 0.6 miles down the road from each other, separated by the town of Knauf near Op d'Burrigplatz Road. Located to the west of the other high point (east of Huldange town), the hill of Buurgplatz (Burrigplatz) has traditionally been known as Luxembourg's highest point. It stands at 599 meters and 1834 feet in elevation and boasts two features: a peaked cylindrical tower and a boastful sign claiming Buurgplatz as the highest point! Meanwhile, Kneiff hill stands only one more meter (about 1837 feet) taller than Buurgplatz. Both hilly points are located in Northern Luxembourg near the Belgium border.
