Moving To Luxembourg? Read Our Expat Guide To Travelling On Public Transport

Saturday March 07, 2015 (06:01:45)

Luxembourg has extremely efficient, world-class public transport services. In recent years, Luxembourg modernised its extensive road network so that its motorways now link the city of Luxembourg, which is its capital, with Germany, France and Belgium.

The bus service in Luxembourg is punctual and far-reaching, but not very frequent. Therefore, it is important to check the bus schedule when making travel plans, so as to avoid waiting for hours. Buses generally run from six in the morning to midnight, and every bus stop has timetables and maps that show the different routes and timings. Smartphone users have the option of using an app to access timetables, while others can simply send a text message to 661 104 105 with the name of the bus stop to receive a bus schedule.   more ...

Working as an Expat in the Duchy of Luxembourg

Tuesday April 16, 2013 (17:23:35)
Old Luxembourg
Luxembourg, one of the smallest and most charming countries and a hidden gem in Western Europe, is surrounded by Belgium, France and Germany and popular with expats due to its location, size and culture.

Voted the European Capital of Culture back in 2007, Luxembourg has developed into one of the top tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its large diversity in such a small area.
