Hearts

Luxembourg is located at the heart of (Western) Europe… But, obviously, that’s not the point here.

Even though not every heart in Luxembourg is available, and not everyone uses the word ‘love’ easily, you’ll find that this is a country where love matters.

And we like that quite a lot. Lots of love!

In Love

This one comes in handy because, strangely enough, Luxembourgish has no exact equivalent for the verb ‘to love’.

Of course, we still enjoy this very special pleasure of life, as we do many others, too.

So, is Luxembourg a place to fall in love? To fall in love with, at least. Of that there is no doubt!

Laugh

A Luxembourgish sense of humour? Though it’s probably not of world renown (you tell us!)

Luxembourgers have jokes of their own, even if they might not be easy to get at first.

Why? Because they are sometimes lost in translation… due to the mix of cultures and languages. To experience it first hand, plan an evening out and mingle with Luxembourgers! You’re invited!

Unhappy

All in all, there is little reason for deep-rooted unhappiness in Luxembourg, let alone grumpiness.

In the World Happiness Reports, Luxembourg consistently ranks among the Top 20 happiest places to live, taking into consideration different economic, social and related variables such as health and safety.

Yet, sometimes one just gets up on the wrong side of bed. It can happen to all of us, even Luxembourgers.

Angry

Luxembourg, merely a city-state? Luxembourgish, that’s a dialect right? Two examples of offensive notions regularly heard, that really get us furious! Well, no, not really.

Triggering genuine anger from rather pragmatic people requires a little more effort. But you wouldn’t want to try, would you?

Applause

A noisy mix of claps and cheering as a universal way of showing recognition and appreciation? Absolutely!

If it’s deserved, that is. Occasionally, people in Luxembourg might turn out a little hard to please, but once we get going, we can’t be stopped!

Handshake

It’s a deal! To some, making deals is an art. To Luxembourg, it’s a matter of mutual benefit and progress, in a relationship of trust and reliability.

That’s what the country stands for, be it on the diplomatic stage or in the world of business. Take Luxembourg at its word, let’s shake on it!

Thumbs up

Approved! Probably the shortest possible answer if you like to keep things concise.

There really is nothing more to say.

Thumbs Down

Nah, no good! Can’t agree with that!

Seen less often than its positive sibling, this sign of disapproval nonetheless has its raison d’être.

Luxembourgers don’t shy away from expressing their disagreement and we certainly don’t beat around the bush. Thumbs up!
