Advantages and disadvantages of moving to Luxembourg

Economic dynamism and quality of life in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is attracting more and more expatriates. Its population is constantly growing, fueled by the influx of foreigners.

Its economic dynamism, financial and political stability, and security index make it an attractive destination for job seekers. Unemployment is low and salaries are attractive. Half of the working population is made up of cross-border commuters.

Living in Luxembourg means enjoying a pleasant environment and an attractive quality of life, whether in the city or the country.

To accommodate a multicultural population, the school system is becoming increasingly international. Whether public or private, Luxembourgish or international, there's a place for everyone, whatever their nationality or school system. Find out more about education in Luxembourg.

The healthcare system is efficient and accessible to all. Social and family benefits are substantial, enabling everyone to meet their needs despite the high cost of living.

Traffic jams and high property prices in Luxembourg

Nevertheless, Luxembourg is faced with an increasing resident population and a growing number of cross-border comm uters, generating major traffic problems at peak times. Today, Luxembourg is a "victim" of its own success. Its attractiveness in terms of employment generates a lot of traffic jams. Cross-border commuters spend hours waiting in traffic jams during rush hour.

Living locally reduces the inconvenience of transportation. The government has made a number of efforts to improve the situation. Luxembourg is the first country in the world to offer free public transport.

Housing is becoming increasingly expensive, despite a slight correction in 2023. Property prices continue to rise. Without sufficient downpayments, housing is rapidly becoming unaffordable.

Rents continue to rise. Demand far outstrips supply, despite development projects across the country. New districts continue to emerge, but insufficiently so. Investors continue to pull the market upwards, all the more so in a context of low interest rates.
