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!
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!
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!
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.
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?
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!
