Where to stay in Luxembourg – My top picks

As a local, I recommend spending at least one night outside Luxembourg City. The country has so much charm, and whether you love hiking, wine tasting, or castles… you’re in for a treat!

Luxembourg City – Places to stay in Luxembourg for Town Vibes

If you love city vibes but yet at a tranquil pace, I recommend staying in one of the numerous hotels in the capital, Luxembourg City.

The biggest city in the country, with its 125.000 inhabitants, cannot be compared in size with other European capitals.

That makes it particularly attractive for those who don’t want to commute between sites but explore a new destination on foot.

Despite its cute size, Luxembourg City boasts many cultural and historical attractions. Its old town and the casemates have been declared UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Petrusse Valley and the lovely Grund neighborhood are particularly quaint.

If you love museums, Luxembourg City is THE place to stay.

If you only have limited days to spend in Luxembourg and are wondering where to stay in Luxembourg, you can set your base in Luxembourg City and visit the rest of the country with day trips.

Here are my favorite hotels in case you are wondering where to stay in Luxembourg City:

Kirchberg – Where to stay in Luxembourg for Business Travel

Many visit Luxembourg for business reasons.

That’s no wonder Luxembourg, and more specifically, its capital is an international hub for finance companies, banks, and EU institutions.

As the most important companies and institutions have their seat in Luxembourg City, I recommend looking for a hotel in the capital and its Kirchberg District.

The business hub of Luxembourg City is located in the Kirchberg district. Several new and internationally renowned business hotels have opened their doors here.

If you want to get a better feel for the vibe of Luxembourg City, I recommend booking a hotel in the city center. It’s only a 15-minute bus ride from the Kirchberg and worth it.

If you have very limited time in Luxembourg, I recommend staying close to the airport, Findel.

It’s less than 15 minutes away from the Kirchberg business hub, and there are several great hotels near the Luxembourg airport. There’s even a quaint boutique hotel: the Airfield – Airport.

Moselle – Best Place to Stay in Luxembourg for Wine Lovers

The wine region of Luxembourg is located in the east of the country, along the Moselle river. The main cities of viticulture in Luxembourg are Grevenmacher, Schengen, and Remich.

Did you know that the small country of Luxembourg is internationally famous for its wines? White wines such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc won several international awards.

However, the crémant (the local sparkling wine) is the most coveted drink among locals and visitors.

Having a glass of crémant is basically always the first thing I do when I return to Luxembourg after a long trip. Nothing else gives me more of the feeling of “being home again”.

The Luxembourgish crémant is not too sweet, and several wineries have won international awards for their crémants. Thus, you just can’t leave without having tried the local drink.

The best things to do in the wine region of Luxembourg are visiting wine cellars, hiking in the vineyards, and visiting the village of Schengen which gave its name to the famous Schengen visa.

Mullerthal – Best Area to stay in Luxembourg for Hiking

One of the biggest mistakes people can commit when it comes to understanding Luxembourg as a travel destination is probably seeing it as a place filled with banks…made of only one city, the capital.

Well, let me tell you a secret: Luxembourg is an excellent hiking destination, and you’ll fall in love with its rolling hills in the north and the characteristic rock formations in the east known as Mullerthal or “Little Switzerland”.

The hiking trail network has been greatly renewed over the last few years and there are trails for any level.

One of the most famous trails in the country is probably the Mullerthal Trail which takes you through the scenic “Little Switzerland” near Echternach and Berdorf.

But also, the north of the country has excellent hiking trails. Often, they are a little bit more demanding because the north of Luxembourg is part of the Ardennes mountain chain.

The best places to stay in Luxembourg for outdoor lovers are the north and east of Luxembourg, where you’ll find plenty of family hotels and bed and breakfasts.

5. Where to stay in Luxembourg for History buffs and Castle Lovers

Did you know that Luxembourg boasts a unique history?

Over the past centuries, the country was occupied/belonged to the French, the Germans, the Spanish, the Austrians, etc.

But already in the Middle Ages, Luxembourg was split between several counts and as a result, you find spectacular castles all over the country.

The most famous and best castles in Luxembourg are probably the ones in Larochette, Vianden, and Beaufort.

If you are a history buff, you can’t skip Echternach, the oldest town in the country.

Once a Roman settlement, the abbey founded by Willibrord, an Anglo-Saxon monk, made Echternach one of the most important European towns in the Middle Ages.

I recommend staying in the north or the capital if you plan to visit Luxembourg’s historical sites. Whether you are looking for a B&B Luxembourg or an aparthotel Luxembourg, the country boasts a large accommodation offer.

If you want to see the beauty of Vianden Castle and the medieval town of Vianden, then a round-trip train ride with the Vianden Express is a perfect idea.

6. Where to stay in Luxembourg for Spa and luxury Holidays

LUXury holidays in LUXembourg? Hell, Yesss!

Not only does the country boast several 5-star hotels, but Luxembourg has one of the highest Michelin star rates per inhabitant in Europe.

Luxembourg is your place to visit if you want to spend a foodie gourmet weekend.

But not only foodies will find their heaven in Luxembourg. Also, if you want to get pampered, several wellness and spa hotels await you.

Luxury hotels in Luxembourg are spread throughout the country, but most can be found in the capital.

The Hotel le Royal ***** and the Hotel Le Place d’Armes ***** are some of the finest addresses in Luxembourg. They are both located in the city center. However, it is hard to tell which hotel is best in Luxembourg.

However, several luxury hotels in the countryside will provide you with the ultimate relaxing experience in Luxembourg.

To my surprise, the country has many charming and cozy spa hotels. It’s perfect if you want to recharge your batteries or spend a romantic weekend with your loved one.

7. Cheap Hotels in Luxembourg? Oh yes!

I have to admit that Luxembourg is probably not the cheapest destination. Because Luxembourg is one of the wealthiest countries in Europe, if not in the world, prices are accordingly high.

However, many things in Luxembourg are free or come at a meager price, making the Grand-Duchy a great place to visit for budget travelers.

Public transport, hiking, and many social events are usually free.

If you are looking for cheap accommodation in Luxembourg, I recommend looking at the country’s numerous youth hostels.

They are spread out through the country and often in very scenic locations such as the Luxembourg Petrusse Valley, The Youth Hostel Lultzhausen (north), the Youth Hostel Hollenfels or the Youth Hostel Echternach (east).

They offer great value for your money and also for not-so-young travelers. A youth hostel is probably the cheapest place to stay in Luxembourg.

Despite its limited size, Luxembourg has many motels, cheap hostels and beds, and breakfasts in the capital, Luxembourg Ville, and the countryside.

If you are wondering where to stay in Luxembourg when traveling on a budget, I have these scenic, yet cheap accommodation tips below.

FAQ: Prepare your trip to Luxembourg

What to do in Luxembourg?

luxembourg city, old town, visit luxembourg, grund district
Grund District, Luxembourg City

That’s usually the first question I get when telling people I am from Luxembourg. It’s usually followed by “Oh, so there is more than only one town in Luxembourg?!” or “So, you are German, right?”

Well, the question should be, “What NOT to do in Luxembourg”?

From cross-country skiing, wine tasting, hiking, outdoor climbing, museum and castle hopping, shopping, and wellness, Luxembourg has something for you!

Each part of Luxembourg seems to be “specialized” in a specific type of travel.

When looking for the best things to do in Luxembourg, roughly, you can distinguish four different areas for tourism in Luxembourg.

  • East: Hiking, history, castles, and rocks like in Berdorf camping
  • North: Hiking, virgin forests, rolling hills, lakes, and agriculture
  • South: Former steel industry, and the multicultural, independent art scene
  • Capital: city life, museums, parks, and business travel

How to get around in Luxembourg?

Luxembourg City

After visiting more than 35 countries, I can tell you that Luxembourg is one of the easiest countries to get around. Since March 2020,  the Grand Duchy is one of the first countries in the world with free public transport for everybody.

All major towns are connected to the public rail and bus network. 3 train lines can be distinguished:

  1. Luxembourg City – North (Clervaux, Troisvierges)
  2. Luxembourg City – South (Esch-Sur-Alzette, Rodange)
  3. Luxembourg City – East (Wasserbillig)

The rest of the towns are (inter)-connected by bus.

When looking for places to stay in Luxembourg, remember that you can easily commute between villages and towns.

Book your train tickets to Luxembourg from Paris or Brussels

Another great way to explore the best of Luxembourg City at your own pace is by getting on the “hop-on hop-off bus“. – Get tickets here.

Best Time To Visit Luxembourg

As a sun-lover, I would recommend visiting Luxembourg between April and September to be sure to have some sunshine.

The spring and autumn season is wonderful to visit Luxembourg.

During spring, the country comes to life again (after harsh winters), and it’s all green and blooming. In autumn, the countless woods of Luxembourg are luring you with their bright red, orange, and yellow fall leaves.

However, my favorite time of the year to visit Luxembourg is summer.

Every weekend, there is a different event in Luxembourg City or any other major town in the country, such as Echternach, Vianden, or Remich.

To me, it also seems like the country wants to live at 130 % during the summertime, as the winters tend to be quite grey and rainy here.

But also during the winter and the holiday season, Luxembourg is a great place to visit. Recently, the Christmas Market of Luxembourg City has become one of the prettiest in the area.

Every other central town holds its own Luxembourg Christmas Markets during the weekend.

One of my favorite ones is the one in the medieval town center of Echternach.

Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in the European Union.

Despite its limited size, you’ll find many activities and things to do.

The Grand-Duchy will surprise you whether you are into hiking, city travel, castle, or museum hopping.

And I continue preaching that there is much more to see and do in Luxembourg than only in Luxembourg City. Of course, Luxembourg City is a gorgeous place to visit, but limiting your trip to Luxembourg to only the capital would be a pity.

Hiking paradises, rolling hills, countless vineyards, and rough steel factories from past times await visitors willing to go beyond the capital.

Unfortunately, many travelers visit Luxembourg only on a day trip from Brussels, Paris, or Cologne.

Thus, the goal of this guide is not only to take you to the best hotels in Luxembourg but also to showcase to you the enormous diversity of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

I lived 18 years in Luxembourg, and after being an ex-pat in Spain for more than 5 years, I am back in my home country.

Trust me, after more than 25 years in such a tiny but cute country, I will only tell you the most renowned and best places to stay in Luxembourg.
