Getting to Know Europe

Discovery Tours are made possible by the generosity of MUDEC alumni, and offer students a great opportunity to explore local gems and "off the beaten path" areas. So far, students have enjoyed visits to locations in Luxembourg such as the National Mining Museum in Minett, tours of Luxembourg City, and a treetop hike in Germany!
