Financial hotspot, EU city, cultural metropolis – all these labels and many more characterize the capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Having just about 115,000 inhabitants, the city of Luxembourg can’t be considered as “heavy weight” among European cities. Nevertheless, this historically significant city upon the Alzette is one of the hearts of the EU with not only one, but several European institutions being headquartered there.

In addition to international enterprises like Amazon, eBay or Skype, there are more than 150 banks and other financial institutions based in the city of Luxembourg. But there is even more to explore. Whether theater performances, operas, ballets, concerts or museums – being honored European Capital of Culture two times, Luxembourg is a genuine cornucopia of cultural events.


Not only the City of Luxembourg but also the surrounding region offer a great range of free time activities suiting every taste:

Mountain biking throughout Luxembourg, hiking in the Mullerthal (Luxembourg’s
‘little Switzerland’), discovering small villages and medieval castles in the Ardennes, experiencing culture and history in one of Luxembourg’s many museums, spending a relaxed day on one of the region’s seven golf courses, shopping and strolling through the historic streets in Luxembourg city centre, relaxing in the thermal baths at Mondorf-les-Bains, enjoying a boat trip on the river Moselle, tasting first-class wines in the wine cellars of the Moselle valley and many more…
