Tucked between Belgium, France and Germany, this tiny country - just 57km across - is just over two hours away from Paris on the TGV Est service which opened in June 2007. With its beautiful woods, rolling countryside and pretty old city, it's perfect for a relaxing break, whether you want to stay for a weekend or a little longer.
- Passing through?
Enjoy "Europe's most beautiful balcony" as you stroll along the top of the old ramparts of Luxembourg City. Then explore the Casemates - a maze of tunnels originally built to link the city's forts.
- Staying a while?
Take a trip to Vianden, an hour north of Luxembourg City. It's a beautiful medieval town boasting a stunning chateau.
- The inside track...
Head to Maison des Brasseurs to sample local specialities like potato hot-pot.
