Driving licences issued in EU countries are valid for use in Luxembourg for the period of their validity. Non-EU nationals can use their own licence together with an international driving licence.
Best time to visit
Weather in Luxembourg is moderated somewhat by the sea some 200 miles to the north. Summers can be warm. There are about 10-13 rain days each month. In autumn the forests are very attractive with beautiful colours. Springtime, when the wildflowers bloom is also very nice.
'Letzebuergesch' is the everyday spoken language of the people, and the symbol of the Luxembourgers national identity. Since the creation of a dictionary and a grammar, this former Mosel-Frankish dialect is now recognised as the national language (since 1984), while both French and German remain the official languages.
Road conditions / restrictions
Luxembourg has a modern, well-maintained system of highways and secondary roads. Road signs and markings are clear and, as applicable, worded in French. Streets in the city, construction sites and crossroads are well illuminated at night. On highways, a digital alert system warns drivers of incidents or detours. Roads towards and out of Luxembourg City are congested during the morning and evening rush hour.
