Resembling Europe in miniature, Luxembourg has a wine country, abbey towns, castles, river valleys and a cosmopolitan city, all packed into an area smaller than the U.S. state of Rhode Island. Full of charm and with a multilingual population, Luxembourg offers something for nearly every visitor, no matter where he or she is from.

Despite its romantic castles, scenic countryside and a hip capital city, this tiny country is not as well-known among travelers outside its region as it deserves to be. It's a destination packed not only with historical sites but also a whole menu of outdoor, active pursuits designed to appeal to all sorts of visitors. Travelers to Luxembourg can enjoy hiking or biking tours, the Ardennes, wineries, breweries and castles.

With strict laws regarding bank secrecy, Luxembourg also enjoys popularity as a tax haven and as an important financial services center. Several European Union institutions, including the General Secretariat of the European Parliament and the European Court of Justice, also have their headquarters there.
