At the Airport
Around three million travellers pass through Luxembourg Airport each year. The airport is open between 4am and midnight, and there’s always somewhere to grab something to eat during those times. Free WiFi is provided through the airport, and business travellers even have a couple of meeting rooms at their disposal. A bureau de change helps travellers take care of any last-minute currency exchanges, and passengers can pick up chocolate, perfumes and alcohol in two duty free shops before they board.
Public Transport from Luxembourg Findel Airport
Visitors can rent a car from one of the five car rental companies located in the airport. Luxembourg City is just a straight drive down Rue de Neudorf while many other regions are accessible on the A1 and A7 motorways.
Alternatively, buses regularly run between the airport and Luxembourg City’s central railway station. A number of railway lines link the capital to other major towns and cities, and high-speed trains place many cities in neighbouring countries within easy reach.
When to Fly to Luxembourg
Luxembourg is a popular destination all year round, though its warm sunny summers attract a lot of visitors to its over 100 castles countrywide and the Moselle’s vineyards, as well as the hiking and biking through the beautiful hills and valleys. Though winter tourism is generally quieter, people still visit for skiing in the Ardennes and to enjoy Luxembourg City’s magical Winterlights Festival.
Budget airlines fly to Luxembourg City, so it’s always possible to find a good deal on international flights. However, expect flight and hotel prices to increase slightly during the week, when business travellers come for meetings in Luxembourg City’s European Union institutes and banking sector.

Many of the area’s walking trails weave through the picturesque landscape and are one of the best ways for visitors to hop between wineries. Local restaurants serve Moselle wines alongside ‘Friture de le Moselle’ – a traditional dish of deep-fried white fish, often washed down with a crisp glass of Riesling.
