Areas to live in Luxembourg City

There are many really cool places to live in the city, whether this is your modern loft right in the city center, whose owners want to make some extra money or a flat share in the sought-after areas of ‘La Gare’, ‘Limpersberg’ or ‘Belair’ for instance. Increasingly also the areas around ‘Cessange’ and ‘Cloche d’Or’ are becoming more desirable. Yet the rental market in the capital can be challenging, particularly if you have just arrived or are looking for a flat share while still abroad and do not have any contacts yet. It is possible to find an excellent flat that is just right, in terms of location, price and of course the people, but it does need some networking or you might prefer to work with an agency to assure quality standards and have a guaranteed return of your deposit.

Where to find rooms or a home in Luxembourg?

One of the main sources of finding rooms in Luxembourg is, the flatsharing platform in Luxembourg. They make up for something like 70-80% of all room offers in Luxembourg city.

There are also several FB groups where you can look for rooms but it might be an idea to check whether this is a legal sublet. Indeed many owners are not aware that there is a sublet happening at their property and potential tenants of such unserious offers risk losing their deposit in full if the owner finds out.

Some common pitfalls

Deleted: You should always ask whether you can register at the townhall for your potential new home.
(If this is not possible, chances are high that you are looking at an illegal sublet)

  • Do check whether your new home is actually insured
  • Never ever pay money up front until you have received a legally binding contract
