Everyday Culture in Luxembourg

Tiny country — big personalities. Luxembourg may be one of Europe’s smaller countries, but it sure packs a lot into its limited surface area.

For one, Luxembourg has not one, not two, but three official languages. Tourists who speak French or German should be able to communicate well with the locals. Thenational language, “Lëtzebuergesch”, might pose a bit more difficult for outsiders. Fortunately, English is also widely spoken, and Luxembourgers are very welcoming people.

They’re also incredibly proud of their heritage and traditions. This is celebrated accordingly with local festivities that make it easy to get in touch with the locals. People also get together in the many cafes and pastry shops, enjoying local delicacies. In a move towards environmental consciousness, Luxembourg is the first country in the world to offer free access to public transport. So as long as you stay on national trains in second class, you can explore the whole country without ever paying for a ticket.

THIS makes Koler kooler

That the Guttland region has its very own charm is proven by the once inconspicuous village Kahler (called Koler in Luxembourgish), which is turning into an urban art museum. Colourful street art embellishes many house facades and barns. And everyone in the village is delighted, not least because the man wielding the spray cans is one of them. Alain Welter launched the campaign “Make Koler Kooler” to introduce street art to his home village. While it was at first only supposed to be his degree project, the urban artworks in the streets of Koler keep growing even now, and they are freely accessible to everyone.
