Shopping in Luxembourg - an expatriate's testimonial

Culinary specialties, specific ingredients, fresh produce... Eva shares her thoughts on culinary habits in the Grand Duchy.

The diversity of Luxembourg's food offer

Over 47% of Luxembourg's population are foreigners, from more than 170 different countries. This multiculturalism is reflected on the shelves of supermarkets and grocery stores.

Many international food chains

First of all, there's a real diversity of supermarkets in Luxembourg. Depending on their origin, they offer an infinite variety of delicious food products.

There are also many more specialty food stores from specific countries. Specialty grocery stores come from England, Portugal, Spain, Italy, the Nordic countries, ...

A huge selection of all kinds of products

In Luxembourg, you'll find a wide range of local and international wines and liqueurs in your supermarket. Luxembourg beer is not bad at all! What's more, thanks to low taxes, spirits sold in Luxembourg are generally much cheaper than in Germany.

If you're a sweet tooth, Luxembourg is heaven on earth. There are more chocolateries and patisseries in Luxembourg's capital than you'll ever be able to try! They offer incredible cakes, cookies and chocolates. Forget the famous Schwarwälder Kirschtorte! Try delicious sweets such as MontBlanc, tarte tatin or Truffle Cake. And, of course, macaroons! By the way, did you know that macaroons were called "Luxemburgerli" in Switzerland?

Fresh, high-quality products

One of my favorite aspects of Luxembourg is the choice of very good quality products. Unfortunately, at a very high price compared to Germany.

Eva - German expatriate in Luxembourg

You can find an incredible variety of fresh fish and se afood. Almost every supermarket has its own fishmonger. The quality is excellent. The best place to buy fish in Luxembourg is certainly the Poissonnerie Centrale, in the Gare district . It's still very expensive, but the quality surpasses everything.

Or try Thym Citron on rue de Strasbourg! It's one of the best places in town for quality fresh fruit and vegetables.

Shopping in Germany is cheaper than in Luxembourg

Nevertheless, food is very expensive in Luxembourg compared to Germany. Many people go all the way to Germany to do their weekly shopping.

They also take the opportunity to visit DM, even though German brands Lidl and Aldi are well established in Luxembourg. Cactus stores (Luxembourg supermarkets) also carry many German branded food products.

The main reason I go shopping in Germany is the great lack of bread varieties in Luxembourg. You'll find French baguettes everywhere, but the diversity is limited.
If you like wholemeal bread and organic products, you can head for the organic departments of your supermarkets.

You'll find products of all kinds in these departments, which are generally well-stocked in Luxembourg. Otherwise, there's Naturata, one of the few organic stores in Luxembourg. I think their number could be increased.
