The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is located at the heart of Europe and was a founding member of the European Union. Along with Brussels and Strasbourg, Luxembourg is
home to several EU institutions.
The capital, Luxembourg City, was founded back in 963. Today, the city is a prosperous financial metropolis with a strong economy and an international, multilingual workforce. Find out more about

At the heart of Europe:
Luxembourg is located at the crossroads of France, Belgium and Germany and enjoys good transport links.
A cosmopolitan city:
Luxembourg is a lively, multicultural city increasingly chosen by young professionals as a starting point for their careers. The city has a population of almost 122,500, 70% of whom are non-Luxembourgers hailing from more than 160 different countries. English is widely spoken in addition to the three official languages: Luxembourgish, French and German.
High standard of living:
With its generous public spaces, extensive parks and good infrastructure, Luxembourg is one of the most liveable cities in the world.
Luxembourg’s small size belies the wide range of cultural activities on offer. Besides its historical landmarks, the country boasts around 60 museums (seven in Luxembourg City), iconic concert venues, theatres and cinemas.
The Grand Duchy is a family-friendly country. Families benefit from high-quality childcare services and a good social security system. EU staff may choose to educate their children free of charge at one of the European Schools or multilingual state schools or choose from several fee-paying private/international schools.
Free public transport:
Since 2020, public transport has been free of charge throughout Luxembourg.
