Going out

See another side to Luxembourg, by enjoying the country’s nightlife and major events.

Where to go out in Luxembourg?

When the sun is slowly setting over the country and its offices are emptying, Luxembourg nightlife begins to stir and, in the cities, the atmosphere begins to build. The happy hubbub of people enjoying after-work drinks suddenly brings the streets to life – don’t be surprised if the groups that form are there till late in the evening!

People from all sorts of job rub shoulders and you hear languages from all over the world – it’s the perfect illustration of how cosmopolitan modern Luxembourg is. There is plenty of nightlife to keep you busy: great restaurants – some of them Michelin-starred – that are sure to set your mouth watering, numerous bars with very Instagrammable decor, and hip cafés where “just one drink” will quickly turn into high-end cocktails and finger food. Keep the night going by heading somewhere for a dance – whether in a bar or a club, you’ll be able to hear the DJs of the moment spin their tunes till the early hours.

Depending on the season, Luxembourg has lots of cultural and sports events too, but also fairs and festivals that draw people from all over the country, and from the neighbouring regions of France, Germany and Belgium. The best-known include all the celebrations linked to local traditions, of course, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. There are also unmissable music festivals held all over the country; the Schueberfouer, Europe’s largest funfair, which livens up August in Luxembourg City; the ING Night Marathon, which is the capital’s biggest annual sports event; and the festive atmosphere of the Christmas markets in December. Those are just a few of the events held in celebration of Luxembourg’s people, culture and history, any of which would add a little something extra to your trip.
