Luxembourg (City) - Leisure, Entertainment & Sports
For single expatriates, the bar and night scene in Luxembourg City has developed substantially over the past couple of years. There are now new entertainment districts, and ample bars, cafés, hip bistros and restaurants to cater to the growing needs of the City. The bars around the City Center, the "Alstad" (old part of the City) and Hollerich are popular with expatriates. Some popular cafes can also be found around the Aldringen Bus Station. The Luxembourg City Council supports the development of the night scene by introducing in 2007, a night bus service. This is a great option for bar hopping expatriates – especially for those who drive. Try this website for the latest news on bars and restaurants in Luxembourg City.
For expatriates interested in networking and business opportunities, there are several international organizations and Chambers of Commerce that organize regular seminars and social / networking events.
