The diversity of food products in Luxembourg

More than 47% of Luxembourg’s population are foreigners, coming from over 170 different countries. This diversity is not only reflected in the shelves of supermarkets and grocery stores. You can also find many more stores selling food specialties from specific countries. In Luxembourg you can find English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, …

Many supermarket chains

We must also take into account the supermarkets installed in Luxembourg. They offer an endless variety of delicious food products. You can find very good quality products. Unfortunately, at a very high price compared to Germany.

Fresh and good quality products

One of my favorite aspects of the store is thehuge variety of fresh fish and seafood available . Almost every supermarket has its own fish market and the quality is incredible. The best place for me to buy fish in Luxembourg is certainly the Poissonnerie Centrale in the Gare district. It is still very expensive but the quality surpasses everything.

Also try Thym Citron on rue de Strasbourg! It is one of the best places in town to find quality fresh fruits and vegetables.

A huge choice of pastries of all kinds

If you are a “sweet tooth”, Luxembourg will be heaven on earth for you. There are more chocolate and pastry shops than you will ever try in the Luxembourg capital! They offer incredible cakes, cookies, and chocolates. Forget the famous Schwarwälder Kirschtorte and try delicious sweets such as MontBlanc, tarte tatin or Truffle Cake. And, of course, the macaroons! By the way, did you know that macaroons were called “Luxemburgerli” in Switzerland?

Taste Moselle wine and Luxembourg beer

In Luxembourg you can find a wide variety of local and international wines and other liquors in your supermarkets. Luxembourg beer is not bad at all! Moreover, thanks to the low taxes, the alcohol sold in Luxembourg is generally much cheaper than in Germany.

Shopping in Germany is cheaper than in Luxembourg

Food is very expensive in Luxembourg compared to Germany. Many people go to Germany (Perl or Trier) to do their weekly shopping. They also take the opportunity to go to DM. And this, even if the German brands Lidl and Aldi are well established in Luxembourg. The Cactus stores (Luxembourg supermarket) also offer many German branded food products.

Shopping in Germany, Belgium or France

The main reason I go shopping in Germany is the great lack of bread varieties in Luxembourg. French baguette is found everywhere, but the diversity remains limited.
If you like wholemeal bread and organic products, you can go to the organic departments of your supermarkets. You will find a lot of products of all kinds, these departments are generally well supplied in Luxembourg.
Otherwise, there is Naturata, one of the few stores dedicated to organic food in Luxembourg. I think their number could be increased.
