Given the size of the country of Luxembourg, there is only one airport. The international airport Luxembourg is situated only 6 km from the city centre and it is linked to the main European cities by many direct flights a day. Furthermore, Luxembourg-city is within short distance to other major airports in the neighbouring countries, which are connected by bus and train.

 Luxembourg is well connected to other European countries by a multitude of international railway options. The capital city is linked to the TGV (SNCF) (FRA), the ICE network (DEU) and the SNCB network (BEL). All train tickets can be purchased online. Please note that trains are free of charge within Luxembourg and paid tickets are priced until reaching the national border.

The central train station of Luxembourg is in 20 minutes walking distance from the city centre. Another option is to take the Tram (stops at the main entrance) to the City Centre and the area of Kirchberg (direct line). 

Main connections are:

  • Paris-Luxembourg via TGV 
  • Strasbourg-Luxembourg
  • Metz-Luxembourg
  • Trier-Luxembourg 
  • Cologne-Luxembourg 
  • Koblenz-Luxembourg
  • Brussels-Luxembourg 
  • Liège-Luxembourg
  • Basel-Luxembourg
Please be aware that tickets for TGV and ICE must be booked in advance, as there is no free seating. In many cases these train tickets are personal and can only be exchanged under certain conditions. It is advised to carefully read the purchase policy. Optionally, some tickets can be purchased directly in the train. These are at least 10% more expensive and the risk remains that the train cannot take you on its journey due to limited capacity – in that case you will be asked to get off at the next station. Therefore, buying tickets inside the train is not recommended.

Besides the main connection options, there is another train station in France for TGV: Gare Lorraine TGV. This station is about 90 km from Luxembourg (2hrs by public transport). Every day, the Lorraine Express buses connect per direct line the TGV station with Luxembourg central station. Seats must be booked in advance. Please check the website of the Société nationale des chemins de fer luxembourgeois (CFL) for further information.
 Luxembourg disposes of an excellent network of highways. The capital city is directly linked to Trier and Cologne (A1), Thionville, Metz and Strasbourg (A3), Brussels (A6) and Saarbrücken (A13).
LuxExpo is located just 200m from the highway exit.
 The majority of the health measures in relation to COVID-19 are revoked in Luxembourg. However, we encourage you to check the requirements of your country of departure and with your airline if flying.

Luxembourg is a resolutely multilingual environment: the majority of Luxembourgers speak four languages and the rate of foreign residents almost reaches 50% of the total population.

 The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of those rare countries in the world where several languages are spoken and written throughout its territory and in different spheres of life – private, professional, social, cultural and political. Luxembourgish, German and French are spoken on a daily basis alongside the languages of the 170 nationalities living in the Grand Duchy, in particular Italian, Portuguese, English and Spanish.
 June, the first month of the summer in Luxembourg City, is an agreeable month, with an average temperature fluctuating between 13°C and 23°C. Even though it can already be very warm and sunny, it is still advisable to be prepared for chilly weather or rain.
In the City Centre, there is a public Wi-Fi network which can be used for free after signing up. At LuxExpo, there will be free Wi-Fi available.
While tipping is not mandatory in Luxembourg, it is generally appreciated for good service. In restaurants, the bill may already include a service charge. However, it is customary to round up the total or leave a small additional amount for the waiter or waitress.

Luxembourg is a secular State. Article 19 of the Luxembourg Constitution guarantees the freedom of worship and public practice of religion, as well as the freedom of expression of religious beliefs. While the majority of Luxembourg's population adheres to forms of Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other non-Christian religions are also represented.
