How To Get To Luxembourg

It is easy to reach Luxembourg, their international airport gets flights from all over Europe, so if you are outside Europe then you would have to transit in an another European country then head to Luxembourg. You can use WayAway to find cheap flights. You can also easily get there by train or buses, and I like to use Omio to book both of these whenever I am travelling in Europe.


How To Move Around Luxembourg

Once you make it to Luxembourg then it is easy to move around the country as Luxembourg offers free transportation! I was amazed by that when I visited, but of course this was expected from the richest country in Europe. Luxembourg started offering free transport for all since March 2020.

You can use the buses and the tram, but if you love cycling then you will love Luxembourg. As cycling is the national sport of Luxembourg, the biking routes are great and extensive, and you can easily rent a bike from hotels or tourist offices.

You can also use the Hop-On Hop-Off bus to make it easier to move around Luxembourg if you want.

You can book trains and buses through Omio to move from one city to the other, which as I mentioned before is my favourite app to use whenever I am travelling in Europe.


Best Time To Visit Luxembourg

Luxembourg city is a year round destination so you can visit anytime, but the best times to visit the country is between May and September. Be aware though that during July and August the weather tends to be wetter and the country is the most crowded during that time. If you plan on visiting during the winter times, just know that it snows there.


Accommodations In Luxembourg

There are plenty of hotels in Luxembourg but you can find some good Airbnbs as well, I stayed in this Airbnb, which was a cute and nice studio. Be aware that prices are high in Luxembourg when it comes to accommodation, but there are discounts during the summer times and the weekends as well.

You can book your accommodation through, which is the one I use the most, or if you wan to stay in a hostel you can book through HostelWorld. You can also use Agoda, Trivago, or Vrbo to book your accommodations. I know most people have a favourite website or app to use, so just choose what you prefer best.
