Travel tips for European countries: Luxembourg
About the country
One of the smallest sovereign states in Europe is the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The northern part of the country is blessed with vegetation and hills. Ardennes offers great panoramic views. The country is small and all tourist attractions are within reach. It is winter in Luxembourg during the winter, but not as cold as the neighboring countries, and summer is warm, which arrives in May and lasts until September. In case of emergency, dial 112 or 113.
Usually a handshake is used to greet people. Although most local people speak English, Letzeburgesch is the national language of Luxembourg. Many Luxembourgish speak French and German as well. When it appears as a guest at someone’s home, it is good practice to give gifts or flowers. People are expected to be dressed in smart casual clothes, but better if they participate in social functions or clubs. Smoking is not recommended in public places.
Villeroy and Boch crystals and porcelain are well known, and Nospelt Clay Ceramics is a product to be purchased in Luxembourg. 15% VAT applies to all items purchased that are not at the campsite, hotels and restaurants that charge 3%. Salary is tax-free.
