Tiny Luxembourg may seem like a blip on a map of Europe but as many visitors soon realise, this little country is plump with medieval history, a thriving gastronomic scene and ample visual delights. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as it is formally known, takes cultural and linguistic cues from its larger neighbours, Belgium, France and Germany. However, lucky for us Luxembourg retains a fairy-tale-like atmosphere with its picturesque villages and scenic natural landscapes. And because the country is pint-sized you can tour the major destinations all within a few hours of driving.

Drive just a few hours southeast and you will arrive in the gorgeous little town of Remich, known for its famous wineries and lovely tree-lined promenades.
Or go north and discover the handsome town of Vianden, home to the famed Vianden Caslte, one the largest fortified castles west of the Rhine River. Constructed shortly after the 10th century the impressive castle and surrounding structures have been perfectly restored. They are a wonderful place to spend an afternoon absorbing its history and charm. Continue north and you will be swept up in the beautiful mountainous scenery of the Ardennes.
