This castle-filled country is bordered by Belgium, France and Germany and what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in natural beauty. Foodies will feel right at home among the multitude of Michelin-starred restaurants and vineyards of the Moselle Valley. Namesake capital Luxembourg City has a setting straight out of a fairytale.
