The approximate population of Luxembourg is 626,108 and the largest cities are Luxembourg City, Esch-sur-Alzette, Differdange, Dudelange, and Ettelbruck.

What do I need to know about living in Luxembourg?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Luxembourg, they said:

"Before retiring in Luxembourg, expats should familiarize themselves with the country's tax system, as well as the cost of living and healthcare. It is also important to research the availability of public transportation, as well as the availability of leisure activities and cultural attractions. Additionally, expats should consider the language barrier, as Luxembourgish is the official language, although French, German, and English are also widely spoken. Finally, expats should research the visa and residency requirements for retirees," said one expat who made the move to Luxembourg.
