Luxembourg Local Customs: 35 reviews and 61 photos
Luxembourg is home to about 7 beer breweries. When I was in Luxembourg I tried a few local beers.
The largest brewery is Diekirch which merged with Mousel in 1999 and nowadays belongs to the Interbrew empire.
The Diekirch brewery was founded in 1871. Their lager kind of beer I drank tasted about average.
Another local beer brand you will come across quite often in Luxembourg is Bofferding. It is brewerd in an independent brewery called "Brasserie Nationale" which is located in Bascharage.
They have pils, lager (also unfiltered) and a dark beer on offer. I tried their lager pils which in my opinion tasted slightly better than the Diekirch beer.

Petrol Station in Luxembourg
Although life in Luxembourg is slightly more expensive than in the surrounding countries, it is well known that petrol is relatively cheap in Luxembourg. Petrol prices are about 20 % lower than in Belgium, France or Germany.
This is due to differences in petrol tax and causes a large number of huge petrol stations on the Luxembourg side of each border.
So if you visit Luxembourg by car, don't forget to fill your tank with cheap petrol.
Luxembourg: Special 2 Euro coin
Luxembourg was among the 11 countries which introduced the Euro as legal tender on the 1st of January 2002.
As in all other countries, also the coins of Luxembourg have a special national side. It shows a portrait of the Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, but in 3 different designs.
Also the name of the country in the local Luxembourgish language is shown: "Lëtzebuerg".
As Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries of the Eurozone, you will notice that the majority of coins you will get as change in Luxembourg is still from other countries, such as Germany and France.
If you have any friends who collect Euro coins you should make sure that you keep all Luxembourg coins for them.
