25 years of Schengen

The Grand-Ducal couple attended the 25th Anniversary Celebrations of the signing of the Schengen Agreement.

The agreement was signed 14 June 1985 aboard the MS Princess Marie-Astrid while it was anchored in the Mosel town of Schengen, Luxembourg. The MS Princess Marie-Astrid is named for The Grand Duke's sister, Princess Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg. Many local and European dignitaries were present for the celebrations which concluded with dinner aboard the newest MS Princess Marie-Astrid.
