What to Take
- Comfortable shoes for city strolls and hiking boots for the countryside
- French and/or German phrasebook (learning a few Luxembourgish phrases is also appreciated)
- Travel plug (adapter)
- Corkscrew (corked wine bottles are the norm; screw caps are rare); pack it in your checked baggage for flights
What to Wear
Dressier clothes (no jeans) are required for top-end restaurants; elsewhere smart-casual clothes and streetwear are acceptable.
Winter temperatures average around 0°C but often drop into minus figures so bring a warm jacket, a woollen hat and gloves if you're visiting then. Summer maximums are typically around 25°C, though you'll want a light sweater at night.
Rain is most common from mid-May to November, when waterproofs are advisable if you're hiking.
- Check passport validity and visa requirements
- Arrange travel insurance
- Confirm airline baggage restrictions
- Book accommodation well ahead if you're travelling at peak times (check in advance for local festivals and Luxembourg City trade fairs)
- Make reservations for popular and/or high-end restaurants
- Organise international roaming on your phone if needed (and check roaming charges)
