It was in this frontier town, the prime winegrowing place in the Luxembourg Moselle region, that on the 14 June 1985 the representatives of the Luxembourg, German, French, Belgian and Dutch governments came together. On board the Princesse Marie-Astrid, they signed the Schengen Agreement, recognising the progressive abolition of the internal borders between their countries. At the start of the 1990s, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece were the first to sign up to this agreement.
