Size aside, it’s pretty hard to fault Luxembourg One of the teeniest nations on the European map, this landlocked nation enjoys some of the highest living standards in the world – something which becomes rapidly apparent on arrival.

Fly into Luxembourg City and you’ll be greeted by a capital that effortlessly blends the architectural romances of old-world Europe with the latest in urban conveniences. Enter the country by land and you’ll be presented with evergreen meadows, languidly flowing canals and stately cliff-top castles. Then there’s a hearty national cuisine to tuck into, a steaming nightlife to check out and elegant town plazas to wile away the hours in – and all squeezed into a plot of land less than 1,600 square kilometres. It just goes to show, size certainly isn’t everything.
