Typical luxembourgish, Luxembourg: 13 reviews and 11 photos


The language of Luxembourg is Luxembourgish. A mix of French, Dutch, German.
The guide told us it is not a written language. I suppose (but did not see) there are writings in Luxembourgish but people do not correspond in it.

For a Dutch person the sounds are familiar, you're almost waiting to understand what people are saying but you simply can't!
The official language is French but the newspapers are in German!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
