Luxembourg has a well-connected international airport, serving more than 70 destinations with direct passenger flights.
Thanks to the country’s location in the heart of Europe, you can hop on a plane and be more or less anywhere in Europe within 2 hours. With more than 800 flights per week on average, the ‘Findel’ is a true travel hub, it’s also among the world’s busiest airports, ranked by cargo traffic.
Luxembourg is in fact home to one of the biggest cargo airlines in the world. From horses to tigers, fresh mangos to precious objects, Luxembourg ships items around the globe.
Some Luxembourgers will remember the old Luxembourg-City Tram, running from 1875 until 1964.
Today, we have a brand new, modern version, which has already proven to be a great success as it improves the flow of people coming to work in the city each day.
Given the constant growth in population and need for mobility in Luxembourg, the new tram line will connect key areas of the city with multimodal interchanges at its periphery. Roll on, tram!
Though not as extensive and meandering as the one first built during the pioneering decades of rail transport in the mid-19th century, the current railway system constitutes a network of comfortable and fast train connections to Paris, Frankfurt and farther afield.
In parallel to the growing cross-border flow of people and of commuters in particular, the network and its capacities continue to be developed. Join the ride!
Luxembourg-City’s anything but flat topography made the funicular a perfect link in an evolving network of urban mobility. Since late 2017, a brand-new funicular has been in service. It connects the Pfaffenthal railway station and transfer hub in the lower part of Luxembourg-City with the new tramway operating on and from the Kirchberg plateau, the city’s European district and business centre. This brand-new infrastructure plays a key role in the new mobility concept implemented in the capital and beyond. The funicular’s difference in altitude is a mere 40 meters, yet even if you deem yourself athletic, you would hardly wish to make the climb every (working) day and get all sweaty, would you? The funicular carries you up in about 63 seconds!
Buses constitute an important element of public transport and mobility in Luxembourg, on an urban level, for regional transport between urban areas, or connections reaching across borders.
Whatever their length, shape, size or colour, buses offer not only a reliable means of transport, but they also open up new opportunities for green transport.
In 2017, for instance, the city of Differdange was the first in the world to introduce 100% electric-powered local buses. Let’s keep moving!
Whizzing down the cycling lane past a traffic jam, there is no better feeling.
In Luxembourg more and more people are strapping on their helmets and using their bikes to get around the country. They prove to be ideal for short-distance commuting and key for reducing road-traffic in city centres.
Simultaneously, urban networks of cycling lanes and rental bikes keep being developed, too.
With more than 600 km of cycling paths and even more to come, the country is certainly nearing the finish line to become a bicycle nation.
Across all age classes, e-bikes are growing in popularity.
If you like touring, they allow you to do longer distances or just go faster and enjoy more of the country’s rich landscape. Indeed, Luxembourgish topography offers plenty of opportunities to make good use of e-bikes.
However, because Luxembourg-City presents more than one challenging slope for the cyclist, it’s commuters who tend to save most effort. Especially welcome, if you’re biking in your business dress!
More and more charging stations are popping up all over the country to facilitate the use of electric cars.
Luxembourg is well aware that in order to combat emissions and fight climate change, new ways of transport are essential.
Hundreds of additional electrical charging stations are currently in the process of being set up at selected parking lots across the country, making electro-mobility increasingly convenient and practical.
