Tucked between France, Germany and Belgium, compact Luxembourg is a melting pot of different cultures. Most of the action happens in Luxembourg City, the country’s pretty and diminutive capital, home to historic cobbled streets and underground caves, and more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city in the world. Beyond the metropolis lie medieval castles, natural springs and verdant landscapes of flowing waterfalls and rolling forested hills; as well as plentiful opportunities for wine tasting.

When to Visit

The best time to visit is during the summer months of May through August. When the sun shines brightest, the days are long and golden and the wine tastes refreshingly good. During the winter it’s cold and dark, but Christmas markets help to lighten the mood. However, year-round you should expect a shower or two. So be sure to pack some waterproof clothes and an umbrella.
