Luxembourg is primarily a destination for business travel, rather than tourism. However, whatever the reason for your visit, we recommend eliminating unnecessary airport waiting times by booking in advance a taxi from Luxembourg Airport, giving you a comfortable, fast and direct journey to your destination.
Situated in central Europe, between Germany, France and Belgium, it is the only state in the world whose political form is that of the Grand Duchy.
The geography of Luxembourg is limiting, and its population is less than 500,000. Despite this, the political and economic influence of Luxembourg is significant, primarily because it is a member of the Benelux confederation, and secondly because it is one of the founding countries of the European Union.
Perched on a cheer rock spur, the capital is Luxembourg City, which is home to about 85,000 inhabitants. About fifty bridges and viaducts connect the fortress with the rest of the territory. In the old city, the historic centre, on a hill overlooking the Alzette River, there is a series of Renaissance monuments whose artistic and historical value is such that UNESCO recognised it as a World Heritage Site.
Luxembourg City is an important financial centre in Europe and worldwide but above all, it is home to some of the most important institutions of the European community, such as the Court of Auditors and the European Court of Justice. Its prominent economic and political role makes this city a lively cultural centre, with many museums, libraries, and research institutes.
What to see in Luxembourg
If you visit the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, we would suggest you take a few hours to visit and do the following:
- A walk through the historic centre of the capital with its Grande Rue, full of bars and luxury shops.
- Notre Dame: Gothic cathedral, built in the seventeenth century, which houses the tombs of the Grand Dukes of Luxembourg.
- Grand Duke Palace: the official residence of the Grand Dukes since 1895; it has been described as "the small Buckingham Palace".
The only Luxembourg airport is called Findel and is about 5 kilometres from the capital. Despite the small size of the country, the airport boasts a respectable annual passenger traffic: about 2 and a half million people.
Inaugurated in 1946, this airport grew mainly thanks to the flag company Luxair.
The connections between the airport and Luxembourg City are regularly made by buses, especially the No. 16 connecting the airport to the railway station and the city centre.
Another good alternative is public taxis, although they are considered expensive, especially at night when rates can increase by 35%.

The public transport network of Luxembourg consists essentially of buses, trams, funicular, and a modern overground railway. As for transport in the city, public transport, with the most internal connection points are the bus and the tram with 8 different stations. The tram, inaugurated in December 2017, connects the peak to the Kirchberg plateau (the Luxexpo) and the red bridge (Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg), where visitors can take the funicular to access the trains or buses. There are also public taxis, convenient for short trips to the city, but not the best choice for airport transfers, as they do not have competitive prices.
The cost of tickets for public transport varies depending on the type and duration. Discounts are available for particular categories of users such as children, the elderly, and the unemployed; discounts are also provided, such as the book of tickets for 10 short trips.
For moving outside of Luxembourg, there are several bus lines and the modern train, which connects the capital with other European cities including Amsterdam, Brussels, and Frankfurt.
Among the private transport options, there is car rental, even if the costs are not considered exactly cheap, and the opportunity to book a private taxi. The latter is the best choice for airport transfers, both from the point of view of savings and the convenience and professionalism of the service.
