What do I need to know before moving to Luxembourg City?

Answer this Question

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

"Expats moving to Luxembourg City should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high, with housing being particularly expensive. The city is known for its multicultural environment, with a large percentage of the population being foreign residents. This means that English is widely spoken, but learning the local languages (Luxembourgish, French, and German) can be beneficial for both social and professional integration. The job market in Luxembourg City is competitive, but there are opportunities in various sectors, particularly in finance, European institutions, and technology. It is essential to have a valid work permit and residence permit before starting work in the country. Public transportation in Luxembourg City is efficient and affordable, with buses, trams, and trains connecting different parts of the city and the country. In 2020, Luxembourg became the first country in the world to make all public transportation free of charge. Healthcare in Luxembourg is of a high standard, with a mix of public and private healthcare providers. Expats should ensure they have adequate health insurance coverage, as they will need to contribute to the national healthcare system through social security contributions. Education options for expat children include public schools, private schools, and international schools. Public schools are free and offer education in Luxembourgish, French, and German, while international schools teach in English and follow various international curricula. Luxembourg City offers a high quality of life, with numerous parks, cultural attractions, and a vibrant dining scene. The city is also well-connected to other European cities, making it easy to explore the region during weekends and holidays. Finally, it is essential for expats to familiarize themselves with local customs, traditions, and etiquette to ensure a smooth transition into Luxembourgish society. This includes understanding the importance of punctuality, respecting privacy, and being polite in social interactions," explained one expat living in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg.
