Drive your car... Tips (11)

To Luxembourg by car

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 Dangers" tip about parking in Luxembourg.

by car

Driving in Luxembourg is wonderful! The excellent roads and the mountainous terrain will make your trip unforgettable. And on top of that, gasoline here is significantly cheaper than in surrounding countries.

In Luxembourg City we parked in the garage underneath Place Hamilius. I don't remember the exact price, but it was not expensive at all.

Arriving and departing...

If you drive over from Maastricht (Netherlands), you will see absolutely STUNNING scenery along the way.

The valley rises and falls, and there are these gigantic trees all over. It is lush green.

It really is breathtaking.

When you drive into the main city centre, you'll see these huge towers of the financial giants.

You will find a map with parking locations on the website below. The city hostel has free parking. The parkings do look a bit outside the center but the inner city is small, you'll find yourself not walking much further than 15 minutes to be in the heart of everything.
There are not very many parking possibilities in the streets. If there are, you'll pay 1,20 per hour, with a maximum of 2 hours.

Types of Strange Cars you will See

When your in Luxembourg, you will see the disparity between the rich and the middle class! Luxembourg is a pretty expensive place to live, and a lot of people commute from Germany and France everyday.

If you are from the United States, you might appreciate some of these smaller cars! They are pretty cute in size!

Park and Ride

Luxembourg City has a park and ride system. Large car parks are available on the outskirts of the town. You can leave your car for free there and take a bus directly to the centre. It is definitely the best way to get into Luxembourg by car with minimum hassle. Just follow the P+R signs on the motorway to find the car parks.

Parking spaces for women only

This is one of the strangest things I saw in Luxembourg. It appears women have priority for spots which require less walking/stairclimbing to exit the garage. What message is being sent by this preferential treatment?
So, do women have little women stickers on their car windows too?

Parking Garages

The wait to get inside the garage was almost 15 minutes. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon, and had to wait around the corner, as there were several cars ahead of ours. I have a 4x4 truck, and sometimes have a hard time fitting it in garages, but Luxembourg garages are plenty big enough.
This garage is located very close to OLV Church, and the center of the city.
Price was 6,00 Euro for about 4 hours

Luxembourg is a city of contrast. It has 95 bridges and 5 viaducts, some of these viaduct are 44 metres high.
The bridge which connects the upper town to the lower station area has 25 bows, is 308 metres long and is 44 metres high. It was the first bridge of this cosmopolitan city.
The most modern bridge is the Pont Grande Duchesse Charlotte, better known as the red bridge.
This bridge rises above the valley of the Alzette and connects the city centre with the European plateau of Kirchberg.
The bridge is made of red steel and the people of Luxembourg call it the 'Roud Breck'. It is 355 metres long, 25 metres broad and weighs about 4800 tons. Built between 1962 and 1966. At one end of the bridge is a monument in honour of Robert Schuman, the architect who made the bridge for the European Commission.
