Useful Apps

Public transportation is free and you can ride like the locals. The official app for Luxembourg’s public transportation offers live schedule updates and route suggestions.

This app is extremely useful for communicating with loved ones and friends back in the states because it has very good wifi calling, video chat, and messaging. It is also the most common app used to communicate via phone with Europeans from all over the continent. Often if someone gives you their phone number they will tell you to message them there instead of texting them.

VDL Utilities
This app is useful if you are driving a vehicle in Luxembourg because it shows real-time occupancy rate of public car parks. The app also boasts ‘the most complete agenda for events in the city’.

Google Translate
While Luxembourgers do often speak English, there may be times where you are in a more rural area or talking to someone older who does not speak English. In Luxembourg, German, French, and Luxembourgish are spoken. In some areas, people may only speak French or may only speak German, so even if you speak one of the official languages, the app is still useful. There is also a large Portugese immigrant population in Luxembourg, so this app allows for you to explore the diverse food options Luxembourg offers with ease.

Europe’s most popular weather app with 7-day forecasts, extreme weather warnings, and easy-to-read weather widgets. Also, a quick internet search does the trick without an app.

The app sends national emergency warnings such as flooding and roadway access directly to your phone. The app is particularly useful for drivers that may be unfamiliar with Luxembourg should they need to utilize the emergency 112 services.

WebTaxi offers diverse taxi options including advanced bookings, large trunk space, and numerous passengers. Getting a taxi on this app can often be cheaper than other alternative taxi services.

Supermiro offers suggestions for activities in Luxembourg as well as inspiration for travel destinations outside of the Grand Duchy.

Arriving in Luxembourg

The Luxembourg Airport–located in Findel–is located 11.7 kilometers from the Luxembourg Central Train Station. To get into the city, you’ll want to get to the central train station in Luxembourg. You can either rent a car, take a taxi, or take the public bus. As a note, all public transportation in Luxembourg is now free. So as long as you’re traveling on busses, trams, and trains going around Luxembourg, you just sit back and enjoy the ride without having to worry about tickets or transport passes.

If you’re using public transportation, the best way to reach the central train station is by bus. The Airport bus stop is displayed on the public transportation app Mobiliteit.lu as Aéroport Luxembourg/Findel, and the central train station is displayed as Luxembourg Gare Centrale. The two busses that drop off at the central station are Bus #16 and #29. The #16 bus drops off at the front of the train station at the Gare Centrale stop, while the bus #29 drops off behind the train station at the Gare Rocade stop.
