Travelling to Luxembourg
- By train
Luxembourg has train connections to all of its neighbouring countries: France, Germany and Belgium. It is, however, also very feasible to travel by train when coming from the Netherlands or the UK. When planning train travel in Europe, the website of Deutsche Bahn is an excellent source of information, since they have a travel planner that covers almost the entire Europe.
- Belgium. A direct train goes once an hour between Brussels and Luxembourg. A one-way ticket costs about 22€, and the trip takes about 3 hours. Another possibility is to take the train Liège–Luxembourg, which might be more direct for some parts of Belgium, but it has to be mentioned that this train makes a lot of stops. For more information, please check the SNCB website.
- France. From Paris, you may consider the direct train TGV Paris–Luxembourg, or transit via Metz. These trips take about 3 hours, and the price varies from 40€ to 100€. For more information, please check the SNCF website.
- Germany. Rail travellers coming from Germany can use the railway between Trier and Luxembourg. Trier, however, is a relatively small city and is not served by the ICE network. The nearest German city on the ICE network is Saarbrucken, which has a direct highway bus connection with Luxembourg (1 hour and 15 minutes), and the tickets only cost 5€. For more pricing information, please visit the CFL website.
- The Netherlands. Train tickets from the Netherlands to Luxembourg can be bought at the domestic counter or even from the standard NS ticket vending machines (press “Belgium / Luxembourg”). When buying a ticket, one has to specify whether one is going over Roosendaal–Brussels or over Maastricht–Liège. More information can be found on the NS website.
- United Kingdom. Going from the UK to Luxembourg by train is actually quite a viable option. It is possible to buy a Eurostar ticket (to Brussels) that is valid for any station in Belgium. In that case, one may want to use this ticket until Arlon, the last station in Belgium before the border with Luxembourg. The additional return ticket between Arlon and Luxembourg can be bought at the railway station in Brussels (where you can also ask whether conditions are still the same since our university staff used this possibility).
- By plane
- Luxembourg airport. By far, the most convenient way of air travelling to Luxembourg is to arrive at the national airport. Some of the advantages of Luxembourg Airport are its relatively small size and fast and efficient procedures (for instance, one has to be at the airport only one hour before departure). The national carrier LuxAir is a very decent option. From the airport, it’s only 20 minutes to the city centre by bus. A good choice is to take bus 16. Our experience is that a taxi from the airport to the city centre can cost 30€.
- Saarbrucken Airport. This regional airport is approximately 2 hours by public transport from the City of Luxembourg. Although there is no direct shuttle bus service, you may first visit Saarbrücken-Hbf and then take L40 to reach Luxembourg. The bus arrives every hour, and detailed information can be found on the CFL website.
- Frankfurt-Hahn airport and Brussels-Charleroi airport. Although these two airports are major international airports in Luxembourg’s neighbourhood countries, currently, there is no direct public transport to reach Luxembourg. Hence, you may consider taking the train service stated above.
- By car
An international driving licence is not necessary. Your home licence will suffice. Driving is on the right and wearing a seatbelt is required. Driving in the city centre of Luxembourg is not always a pleasant experience, partly due to the fact that many streets are one-way. Also, not every hotel offers parking space. Those who are nevertheless willing to drive can comfort themselves with the fact that Luxembourg has some of the lowest petrol prices in the EU. Free car parks are situated on the city’s outskirts with a regular bus shuttle to the town centre.
Travelling within Luxembourg
Starting in 2020, all public transport (except 1st class) in Luxembourg is free of charge for both residents and tourists. To find a route in Luxembourg, mobiliteit.lu is a very useful website providing real-time route suggestions.
Nearby bus stops of the conference venue are Kirchberg, Coudenhove-Kalergi, Kirchberg, Konrad Adenauer and Kirchberg, Marguerites. There is also a direct tram service, T1, departing from Luxembourg, Gare Centrale, and you may take off at Kirchberg, Universitéit station. For detailed timetable and real-time route suggestions, please visit mobiliteit.lu.
European Union citizens simply need a valid passport or ID to travel to Luxembourg. For other travellers, a visa may be required, depending on their nationality and length of stay in Luxembourg. Visas shall be obtained before departure. For further information, please consult the websites below and check with your local authorities.
If you need an official visa invitation, please contact the organisers well in advance.
