Luxembourg is a founding member of the European Union and many of the EU’s institutions are situated within the borders of Luxembourg. Ironically, the capital of Luxembourg is also named Luxembourg. The three official languages of Luxembourg are French, German and Luxembourgish. Luxembourgish is not usually used in writing but is generally spoken conversationally. French is primarily used in formal situations and in written business. German is used widely in the media and is the first language taught in schools in Luxembourg. Although English is not one of the official languages of Luxembourg, most of the country’s residents speak English and it is taught in schools, especially in the compulsory years. If you are not familiar with at least one of these languages it is important to learn essential phrases to make international moving to Luxembourg.
The southern area of Luxembourg is much more populated than the north side, which is a mostly mountainous region. Luxembourg is officially a secular country, though many different religions are recognized. Because Luxembourg is a member of the European Union it is possible to move to Luxembourg from another country in the European Union without a visa. If you are international moving to Luxembourg from outside the European Union it will be necessary to apply for a visa.
