Past the Duchy

By Linda Tancs

Quiz:  Which of the following is associated with Luxembourg?  Tax-free banking or Villeroy & Boch?  Both, actually.  But there are other items of interest in this tiny country bordered by Belgium, France and Germany–the world’s only Grand Duchy (meaning its ruler is a Grand Duke).  In fact, the tourism board lists six great reasons to visit, to wit:  panoramic views at Chemin de la Corniche, a walk through the old quarters, wine tasting in the Moselle Valley, military history, Michelin dining and biking in the Ardennes region.  Worried about getting around?  Take the hop on, hop off bus.  There’s also a miniature train from May to October.  In short, something for everyone.
