The Campanile Luxembourg Airport Hotel is ideally placed for your arrival and is only 5km from the city centre. The city itself is small enough to get around on foot or bike, but it also has a very efficient bus service. Day tickets are 5 euros but be sure to check the schedule ahead.
Thanks to its geographical position Luxembourg’s cuisine represents a meeting of Italian and Germanic foods. More recently its cuisine has been increasingly influenced by its Italian and Portuguese immigrant population. Local rivers provide an abundance of fresh fish while Judd mat Gaardebounen, smoked pork and broad beans, is considered to be the national dish.
From the 13th to the 21st of October the city plays home to the Luxembourg Tennis Open. During Lent the city plays host to several street carnivals which build up to the more serious Oktave of Our Lady of Luxembourg, a pilgrimage to honour the patron saint that lasts from the third to the fifth Sunday after Easter.

Luxembourg is the only city ever to be nominated European City of Culture twice. It first had the honour in 1997 and then in 2005 it shared it in a cross-border project with the Rheinland-Pfalz and Saarland in Germany, the Walloon Region and the German-speaking part of Belgium, and the Lorraine area in France to encourage the exchange of ideas.
