Where to shop or eat cheap?

10 Replies



Hello there,I've just moved to Luxembourg-Ville, but I haven't found a job yet. (I've been searching before my departure already.) Which means I really have to spend my money wisely. You see, I love this country very much and I hope to stay here permanently.Can you give me ideas on where to shop cheap or where to eat if I want something warm instead of a simple sandwich? Shall I get warm food or cook for myself? Which way is cheaper?Thank you very much for your help and tips.Melinda

Hi Melinda - welcome to Luxembourg! Unfortunately, this is not a place for budget cuisine or grocery shopping - for the most part. However, my recommendation for budget places to eat would be one of the many kebab shops or an Italian pizzeria. The kebab shops, in particular, are an inexpensive alternative to the many (over-priced) French restaurants. 

For inexpensive grocery shopping, I highly recommend a quick trip into Germany to an Aldi, Lidl, Netto, etc. You'll find most products are significantly less expensive than going to Auchan or Cactus.

In the Gare neighbourhood, there are some small restaurants which are not too expensive.

There's a Chinese takeaway at the German end of Remich bridge (Nennig) which is a bargain. €6 - €8 for a huge portion. Closed Mondays.
There are other snack bar and grocery options there too.

Express bus 155 from Luxembourg stops outside and a €2 bus ticket is valid to cross the bridge to that stop.

There is also a LIDL in Bertrange if Germany is too far. Inexpensive food and it is good quality

it is walking distance from Bertrange train station or even from Strassen

They have PIZZA special, buy 2 get additonal 1 free. That makes 3 pizzas for around 20 EUR, a steal for Luxembourg!
