Little Switzerland is thought to have similar terrain to its namesake country, hence the name; it is dominated by craggy terrain, thick forests, some caves and myriad small streams. Unlike Switzerland, Little Switzerland is low-lying, even by Luxembourg standards (its highest peak is only 414 m above sea level).

Little Switzerland is the smallest of Luxembourg’s sub-regions. Within its territory, covering only 7% of Luxembourg, there is only one medium-sized settlement, Echternach (which is Luxembourg’s oldest city). Smaller towns include Beaufort, Berdorf and Consdorf.
