Why rent a car in Luxembourg City?

Luxembourg is a great place to visit. Squeezed between three larger countries, it punches way above its weight when it comes to landmarks and interesting places to visit.

Top ways to enter Luxembourg City

  • Luxembourg Airport: Also known as Luxembourg-Findel, the only international airport in the country served more than 4 million travelers in 2018. A large hub for Luxair, Luxembourg’s flag carrier, the airport is also served by some 15 other airlines including low-cost companies like easyJet and Ryanair. In addition to serving passenger traffic, Luxembourg Airport is also one of the busiest cargo airports in Europe. Located just 7km (4.3 miles) northeast of Luxembourg City, the airport can be reached in about 10 minutes.
  • Metz-Nancy Airport: Also known as Lorraine Airport after the region in which it is located, this small international airport serves Northeastern France. As of July 2019, five different airlines fly to Metz-Nancy, connecting it with destinations in the rest of France as well as Belgium, Greece, Morocco, and other countries. Many flights are only scheduled during the summer months. The airport is 100km (62 miles) south of Luxembourg City and can be reached in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • Hahn Airport: Sometimes also called Frankfurt-Hahn, this small airport in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate serves around two million travelers every year. Only three airlines fly to and from it - low-cost carriers WizzAir and Ryanair as well as Air Serbia. Located 113km (70 miles) northeast of Luxembourg City, the airport can be reached in about 90 minutes.
  • Brussels Airport: The primary airport serving the capital city of Belgium and the European Union, Brussels-Zaventem is one of the largest airports in Western Europe. Served by nearly 40 different airlines, it offers countless flights to and from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Just 215km (133 miles) northwest of Luxembourg City, the airport can be reached in about 2 hours and 20 minutes.
  • Frankfurt Airport: With nearly 70 million travelers served in 2018, Frankfurt Airport is the fourth-busiest in Europe. The airport is a large hub for Lufthansa but is also served by tens of other airlines including a number of low-cost carriers. The airport is located 220km (136 miles) east of Luxembourg City and the distance between the two can be traveled in 2 hours and 30 minutes by car.

 

Note: If you plan to arrive in Luxembourg by flying to an airport in Germany, France, or Belgium, and then picking up a rental car to drive the rest of the way, ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit you crossing the border. While all four countries are part of the Schengen Area and there are no border checks between them, some rental car providers might not permit it; others will allow crossing the border, but will not permit dropping off a car in another country. If that is the case, another option is to travel from the airport to Luxembourg City by public transportation and to pick up a rental car after arriving there.

Useful city facts

  • Despite not being located on the coast, its proximity to the North Sea means Luxembourg City has a mild oceanic climate. The average high temperature is 23°C  (74°F) in July, the warmest month, and 3°C  (38°F) in January. The precipitation in the city is moderate and steady throughout the year; there is usually some snowfall from December to February.
  • One of the six founding states of the European Union (EU), Luxembourg is also its second-smallest and second-least populous member state (ahead only of Malta). As of 2019, Luxembourg had a population of 589,000. On the other hand, Luxembourg has the fifth-highest population density among the 28 EU member states. It is also the country with the highest GDP per capita among EU members; it has more than double the GDP per capita of Sweden, which is the fourth-richest member.
  • Luxembourg City is frequently mentioned as one of the European cities with the highest quality of living, outscoring nearby Brussels, Paris, and Amsterdam. High levels of income, low unemployment, and low crime rates are some of the factors contributing to its high ranking.

Top destinations and activities

  • Bock Fortifications. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Bock is a natural fortification in the northeastern part of Luxembourg City. The impressive fort has been standing in defense of the city for centuries and has experienced attacks from the Habsburgs, Prussians, Castilians, and many other invading armies. In the 18th century, a labyrinthine network of passages or casemates was created underneath it. Nowadays, a tour through them is one of the main reasons why tourists visit Bock. 
  • Luxembourg City History Museum. Although the area around Luxembourg City has been inhabited since at least the Roman times, the founding of the city itself dates back to the late 10th Century. Luxembourg City History Museum is dedicated to telling this 1,000-year-long story through displays of various artifacts as well as audio-visual exhibits. 
  • Cathedrale de Notre Dame. Luxembourg City’s own Notre Dame, this beautiful church was built in the early 17th century by Jesuit monks. Built in the Gothic-Renaissance style, it received cathedral status in 1870 and was significantly enlarged in the 1930s. To this day, it remains the only cathedral in Luxembourg.

Traffic and parking tips

  • Luxembourg drives on the right-hand side of the road.
  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 130km/h (80 mph) on motorways (but lowered to 110km/h (68 mph) if it’s raining), 80km/h (50 mph) on all other roads outside populated areas and 50km/h (31 mph) within urban and built-up areas. Fines for speeding are among the highest in Europe.
  • It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.02% for novice drivers. Exceeding the limit can lead to large fines, a licence ban, and even imprisonment. 
  • Speed cameras are in use in Luxembourg.
  • Proof of insurance and the documentation of the car need to be in it whenever you’re driving.
  • All cars have to be equipped with winter tires in case of snowy and icy road conditions. Do ask your rental car provider about winter tires if you’re visiting Luxembourg during the winter months. 
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the European Union, is 112.

Toll roads

As of August 2019, there are no toll roads in Luxembourg. 

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Esch-sur-Alzette Canton. Also known as the Land of the Red Rocks, this southwestern region of Luxembourg is its former industrial heartland. It is not shy about this heritage and from heritage railways and the National Museum of Luxembourg Iron Mines to a narrow-gauge train tour through some of the empty mines, there’s plenty to explore. The town of Dudelange also has interesting museums that aren’t related to former industry, the Nei Liicht / Dominique Lang Contemporary Art Museum and the National Museum of Resistance. Dudelange is just 18km (11 miles) south of Luxembourg City and can be reached in about 25 minutes.
  • Ardennes. A patchwork of woodlands, hills, and streams, Ardennes is a beautiful area in the northern part of the country. Shared with France, the area is also famous for its unique rock formations. A great place to spend the day outdoors, Luxembourgian Ardennes are mainly made up of the Diekirch District. About 40km (25 miles) northwest of Luxembourg City, the area can be reached in about 35 minutes.
  • Mondorf-les-Bains. Founded by the Celts and later inhabited by the Romans, the small town of Mondorf punches away above its weight when it comes to historical attractions. It is also famous as a spa town with Mondorf’s warm and mineral-rich waters having attracted visitors for centuries. When it comes to more contemporary attractions, Mondorf is also home to the Aviation Museum of Luxembourg. Located 30km (18 miles) southeast of Luxembourg City, Mondorf can be reached in about 30 minutes.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Luxembourg is the Volkswagen Up, although many travelers also go for the Renault Zoe and the Skoda Fabia. The most popular rental car types are mini, economy, and standard.

Further destinations

  • Trier. Located on the banks of the beautiful Moselle River, Trier is the oldest city in Germany. Once Inhabited by Romans, it still has plenty of ancient sites and relics such as the Porta Nigra Gate, the Basilica of Constantine, and the Trier Imperial Baths. When it comes to more recent attractions, the city is also known as the birthplace of the German philosopher Karl Marx; his childhood residence has now been turned into a museum. Located just 49km (30 miles) northeast of Luxembourg City, Trier can be reached in about 50 minutes.
  • Metz. A small and picturesque city in Northeastern France, Metz is best known for its rich history. The number one attraction is Cathedrale St-Etienne, one of the most famous (and most beautiful) churches of France, but travelers also love the Moyen Pont Bridge and the Metz Opera House. Located 100km (62 miles) south of Luxembourg City, Metz can be reached in about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  • Liege. The largest city of French-speaking Belgium, Liege combines the old and the new to create a unique personality of its own. Most visitors go to see Liege’s historical center which features landmarks like the exquisite Hôtel d’Ansembourg Museum, the Palace of Prince-Bishops, and the Archeoforum, a Roman site. But those who venture outside the old town will also not be disappointed, since the Outremeuse museum district, the hedonistic Carré area, and some great local restaurants await. Located 132km (82 miles) north of Luxembourg City, Liege can be reached in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Note: To go from Luxembourg to either Germany, Belgium, or France with a rental car, you’ll have to cross a border. Even though all four countries are members of the European Union and the Schengen Area, and therefore no physical borders are in place, you should still ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit you crossing the border. In case not, it’s always possible to travel by public transportation and pick up a rental car after arriving at your destination.
