Nobody who lives in one of these countries -- with the exception of politicos and bureaucrats -- speaks routinely of the "Benelux." Whenever you read that word here, be advised that it's merely a convenient shorthand that does away with the need to write "Belgium, the Netherlands (Holland), and Luxembourg." No one from the Benelux -- not even politicos and bureaucrats -- thinks of themselves as a Beneluxian.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is tiny. Its borders seem unlikely to enclose so many worthy travel delights. Yet within this country are the remnants of a rich history and a landscape with scenery that varies from wild highlands to peaceful river valleys to plains dotted with picturesque villages and farmlands.
