The biggest sporting event of the year looks to be a big winner for Luxembourg's tourism sector, regardless of how well the country performs in each sport.

The Games of the Small States of Europe, which begin in Luxembourg on Monday, see the Grand Duchy welcome sport delegations from eight other countries.

The 850 athletes competing in the 15th Games are being housed across a number of hotels in the capital which, according to the Luxembourg City Tourist Office, has resulted in hotels being fully booked.

The Tourist Office will host a number of stalls in the capital to guide tourists around the points of interest during their stay.

Luxembourg Olympic Committee COSL will also produce a daily free newspaper reporting on the Games and the hundreds of volunteers helping to make them happen.
