About this book

Despite being one of the smallest countries in Europe, Luxembourg packs a remarkable punch. Boasting hilltop castles, picturesque villages dotted within spectacular valleys, and more Michelin-star restaurants per capita than any other country in the world, this tiny nation has a great deal to offer.

Fully updated for this third edition, Bradt's Luxembourg remains the only standalone guidebook to the country. Crammed with detailed coverage of history, culture and transport, plus practical advice on where to stay and eat, this entertaining and instructive handbook is a must-have for anyone wanting to discover the world's last remaining Grand Duchy.
