Accommodation in Luxembourg City

Recommend

Moving to Luxembourg City? Here is how to proceed to find accommodation in this vibrant capital city.

Luxembourg City is known for being a city of opportunities in professional terms. But if you intend to settle there, finding accommodation can be quite challenging. In fact, given the low supply of housing against high demand, rent prices in Luxembourg City are rather high compared to other major cities. Therefore, you are advised to inquire on the rental market and to choose an appropriate neighborhood according to your needs and budget.

 Good to know:

In order to overcome the scarcity of accommodation in Luxembourg City, many real estate projects are currently underway.

Neighborhoods

Luxembourg City is divided into 24 districts, some of which are tourist regions. Most of these districts are very popular due to their proximity with communal roads and other main roads. Some of these are Beggen, Belair, Bonnevoie, the City Center, etc. Other districts, like Clausen, are currently witnessing the development and urbanization of surrounding areas, namely Grund, Pfaffenthal, Neudorf, etc.

Smaller neighborhoods such as Eich, are quieter and ideal for families. Finally, neighborhoods that are found in the North of Luxembourg City are rich in dense forests and farmland. Note that each neighborhood is particular according to its number of inhabitants and, urban development and accessibility to essential services such as public transport, etc.

Rent prices

Rent prices in Luxembourg City vary from one neighborhood to another given the considerable difference between districts. According to the Observatoire de l'Habitat report 2013-2014, rent prices for apartments ranged between € 1,008 and € 1,588 per month. The minimum price was recorded in Gasperich while the maximum price was in Lampertsbierg.

Find accommodation

As mentioned previously, it can be quite difficult to find accommodation in Luxembourg City compared to other major cities. Therefore, you are not advised to start you accommodation search on the Internet like you would in the case of other major cities. By registering with a real estate agency, you stand more chances of finding accommodation according to your criteria. However, you will be required to pay agency fees that are equal to a month's rent, along with value added tax (VAT) at a rate of 17%.

But you can still view housing offers on general and specialized housing websites, as well as in local newspapers, so as to have an idea of the rental market.
