TUCKED between France, Belgium, and Germany is one of Europe's best kept secrets - Luxembourg. Luxembourg - which is just 51 miles long - is often called one of the Capitals of Europe. This is not just because of its geographical location, but due to the many languages spoken there. The country may be a small package - but that in its way makes it a manageable place to visit. Luxembourg city is a small enough capital to give visitors plenty to do in a short stay, and leave plenty of time to relax. In April, the city's Wine Museum opens to the public where visitors can inspect a huge wine press from 1848, a model vineyard with the different varieties of grape that grow in Luxembourg, and an exhibition showing the wine-making year. The price of entry includes a glass of wine. The museum is situated on the banks of the river Moselle. Another place worth visiting is the National Military Museum in Diekirch , which has exhibits displaying the events of the 1944-45 Battle of the Bulge, and the liberation of Luxembourg. WHERE TO STAY Luxembourg has a range of accommodation, from the business traveller to the backpacker. VITAL STATS Languages spoken in Luxembourg include English, French, and German.
