* ''Series/{{MASH}}'', oddly enough, features an episode with a missing Luxembourger. Luxembourg participated in UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar, with two deaths and two injuries. The concern expressed by the Luxemburgouis officer for one missing soldier was there to emphasise how a country so much smaller than the USA would consider the loss of ''one'' man to be a tragedy that affected ''everybody'' - this at a time when the US Army was routinely feeding whole regiments into the meat-grinder.


* In the Literature/{{Discworld}}, as the series and the concepts evolved, including one-for-one mapping of Discworld states with "Roundworld" equivalents, it is strongly hinted that the Grand Duchy of Sto Helit, a "state" relatively close to Ankh-Morpork (England) is the Discworld Luxembourg.

From 1946 until 1973, Radio Luxembourg was the only English-language non-BBC radio station (not counting [[BuccaneerBroadcaster Radio Caroline and other pirate stations]]) that could be picked up in the UK. In the mid-1950s it switched to medium-wave and could only be heard at night. It's pop music station, Luxembourg 208, played on the fact the BBC Radio One only broadcast "part-time" and surrendered its airwaves to the far less hip Radio Two at seven p.m. every day. 208 started broadcasting at 6:45 every evening. Many shows were pre-recorded in London.

Ever since the emergence of parties in 1918, Luxembourg has been governed by coalitions (except for a period between 1921-1925), making it one of the most stable democracies. The CSV (Christian Social People's Party) and its predecessor the PD (Party of the Right) probably deserve some sort of record for being in charge between 1918-1925, 1926-1974 (during which the PD became the CSV) and 1979-present. Prime Ministers tend to have quite long mandates, like the most recent Pierre Werner (1959-1974 and 1979-1984), Jacques Santer (1984-1995) and Jean-Claude Juncker (since 1995).

Luxembourg was part of the Holy Roman Empire, then Napoleon's Empire, and finally the Kingdom of the Netherlands (and simultaneously the lame-duck German Confederation). When Belgium left the Netherlands, Luxembourg stayed, but now it was stranded and it integrated its economy with that of Germany. Nevertheless, it was a poor country and many people headed for America.
