A little drive-in; jhust for fun!

Here you are on the second highest peak of our country.

For a long time, the place "Burrigplatz" was considered to be the highest point of Luxembourg (559 m), till 1997, when scientists with their measurement based on GPS system found out, that the highest point is indeed a hill named Kneiff (about 560m).
