What do expats in Luxembourg City appreciate most about the local culture?

Live in Luxembourg City? Answer this Question

"We truly appreciate how kind people are here! That really surprised us. For the most part, people are very helpful and considerate. We love that it's a small country and that they take very good care of their people. The medical system is really good. The cost for all public transportation within all of Luxembourg is only 45euros for a monthly pass which to us is very reasonable. Students can purchase an annual, all access pass for a little more. The very first thing we noticed was how quiet it is here, even in the city. It's a very clean and neat country. It's fairly safe here too. We love the diversity of cultures that have merged here," remarked another expat in Luxembourg City.

What do expats find most challenging?

"The biggest challenge we faced was trying to figure out how to shop and save money! In the beginning, our grocery budget doubled! Everything is VERY expensive here! New friends have helped us find the good and affordable ways to shop by going to Germany, France and Belgium on a regular basis. It's pretty cheap to take the train or bus. We go to Germany several times a month for everything from our washer (delivered and installed), to clothes, food and most recently Christmas gifts. We use Ikea in Beligum as well which is literally just over the border. Our country is so small, that within about 30 minutes in any direction, we can be in another country--so cool! Shopping outside of Luxembourg is the most common and widely shared "secret" to saving money," added another person living in Luxembourg City.

What are the schools in Luxembourg City like?

"Starting a new school is scary, but everyone in this school has been new at one time. I was so impressed with how accepting, mature and driven all the kids were. Truly impressive," commented one expat when asked about International School of Luxembourg in Luxembourg City.
