On this page you’ll find all my articles on Luxembourg… which at this time is just one lonely post.
I’m happy to answer questions about my time there in lieu of writing more blog posts on the subject but, in the meantime, check out this post that outlines how you can take a day trip to Luxembourg.
LUXEMBOURG TRAVEL BASICS
CURRENCY | Euros (Check out xe.com for the most up-to-date currency conversion–they have a mobile app too!)
TIME ZONE | Central European Time, also known as GMT +2
VISA / PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS | If you’re planning to spend less than 90 days in Luxembourg/the Schengen area, you can get by using just your U.S. passport–no Visa required. However, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you leave the Schengen area. It’s weird; don’t ask.
LANGUAGE(S) SPOKEN | The most widely spoken in language in Luxembourg is French, but you may also hear German and something you’ll never be able to identify called Luxembourgish.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO LOOK OUT FOR? | As with almost all of Europe, pick-pockets are probably your biggest safety concern though I’ve personally never experienced anything in Luxembourg that warrants mentioning.
Obviously, always take standard safety precautions (don’t wander alone at night, stick to major streets and pathways, don’t flash your wads of cash you baller you). For more information on Luxembourg safety concerns, see this page and always pick up travel insurance before you go.

RECOMMENDED LUXEMBOURG TOURS
➤ DAY TRIP TO LUXEMBOURG, VIATOR TOURS | While visiting Amsterdam and Belgium, I decided to round out all of Benelux with this day trip to Luxembourg via Viator. It was a great day with enough time to really check out (and check off) this tiny, under-the-radar country.

LUXEMBOURG PACKING ESSENTIALS
➤ LUXEMBOURG GUIDEBOOK | I’m a big believer in travel guidebooks – they’re great for historical and background information, practical information like phone numbers, addresses, and opening and closing times, as well as restaurant recommendations and pretty pictures ’cause Luxembourg is just a beaut’! Consider them your portable Luxembourg travel guide.
The Rough Guide to Luxembourg is the one I used and note that since Luxembourg is so teeny, it typically shares a guidebook with Belgium’s–perfect if you’re visiting as a day trip from Belgium!
And if you’re interested in a different kind of guidebook, check out Culture Smart! Western Europe. Culture Smart! guidebooks focus less on hotel recommendations and more on getting you acquainted with the local customs and culture of your destination. I LOVE these guidebooks and find them to be 100% accurate.
