Ten Most Underrated Countries in Western Europe

July 10, 2009
Here’s my list of the most underrated countries in Western Europe. Basically, I took away the largest, most well-known countries — England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, etc., and listed some of the ones that get less publicity.  Of course, no countries are “better” than any other countries – this is just a fun list, not meant to be taken too seriously.  In fact, I haven’t been to Portugal or Iceland.  I guess I just like making lists.  Also, even though I like Sweden and Scotland more than Belgium, for example, Belgium ranks higher because it’s more underrated.
  1. Norway
  2. Denmark
  3. Luxembourg
  4. Belgium
  5. Portugal
  6. Finland
  7. Holland
  8. Iceland
  9. Sweden
  10. Scotland
