    The main railway station in Luxembourg City is busy and seems to provide both domestic and international trains as well as acting as a bus hub for a number of lines throughout the city and country.

    Luxembourg Transportation

    I already knew that there was a regular and frequent bus service from Findel airport to the city, with a stop at Luxembourg railway station (Gare)....bus 16. I hadn't realised quite how regular (every 10 minutes during the day) or how efficient (large 'bendy' buses used at busy times) it would be. I assumed I'd have to buy my ticket somewhere...

    Luxembourg Transportation

    I went to Luxembourg by car from West Germany. The distance between Cologne and Luxembourg is approximately 230 km and the best route leads via the E-road E44 along Koblenz and Trier. All roads in Luxembourg are very well maintained and petrol is about 15 to 20 % cheaper than in most neighbouring countries. Please also read my "Warning and...

  • Buses

    If you don't have a car, the only thing you can rely on is buses. Since the railway network is nto so widespread, there are only two main rail directions, you'd always have to get off the train at some point and take the bus. Most of the places are not connected by train!You can check bus schedules on the link I provided.

The lady who helped me quickly informed me that "it is impossible to get lost in Luxembourg, it's too small." This put...
