Schengen is a small wine-making town and commune in far south-eastern Luxembourg, on the western bank of the river Moselle, near the tripoint where the borders of Germany, France, and Luxembourg meet. Other villages within the commune include Remerschen and Wintrange.

The largest settlement within the commune of Schengen is Remerschen after which the commune used to be named. The name of the commune was changed in 2006 to take advantage of the Schengen's name recognition after the signing of the Schengen Agreement there in 1985.

Schengen Castle dates from 1390 but was almost completely rebuilt in the 19th century. It is now a hotel and conference centre.
