So, where are the best places in Luxembourg to work with free Wi-Fi?
This is of course highly dependant on personal preferences and dare we say, the season.
If the weather isn’t too great:
One of our favourites is Cafe Bloom, just a 5 min walk from the Gare. The staff is super friendly, the interior is light and spacious, and it is not crowded in the mornings or afternoons. Delicious home baked cake and changing lunch menus invite you to stay just a little bit longer and to send that last email.
Bloom Coffee Shop
101 Rue Adolphe Fischer
Hours: open Tuesday till Friday from 8am till 5pm and Saturdays from 10am till 4pm
We often work at Ready?! in Limpertsberg which offers comfy couches, an interesting crowd and delicious fresh pressed juices. Just make sure to arrive after school has started or when the school lunch break is over, as it can get quite busy when the school next door rings out.
Ready Coffee Shop
35 Avenue du Bois
Hours: open Monday to Friday 7am till 6pm, Saturdays 9am till 4pm and closed on Sundays
A convenient location for meetings is Knopes at Robin du Lac. There is parking across the street and the coffee is divine. There is a big chance you run into someone you know while catching up on your projects.
Knopes at Robin du Lac
70 Route d’Esch
Hours: open Monday to Friday 9.30am till 5pm, Saturdays 9.30am till 6.30pm and closed on Sundays
The newly re-done Cafe in Parc de Merl is also a great place to work, especially in the summer. First you complete your assignment and then you can jump on one of the trampolines with your kids.
28, rue de Bragance
Hours: open every day from 10am to 6pm
With two locations in town and one in Belval, Golden Bean offers great coffee, nice ambience and a relaxing atmosphere to work. We especially like the location in Belval, close to the university and easy to get to, as parking and the train station are close by.
Avenue du Rock’n’Roll
Hours: open Monday to Friday 8am till 7pm, Saturdays and Sundays 10am till 6.30pm
Our secret tip is our favourite bakery “Au Pain de Marie” with its newly opened second floor in Gasperich. Pick up a tasty treat and ask the staff for the hidden door to access the second floor to get started with work.
Au Pain de Marie
40 Rue de
L-1617 Luxembourg, Gasperich
Hours: open Monday to Friday (closed on Tuesdays) 6am till 7.30pm, Saturdays 6.30am till 6pm and Sundays 7am till 2pm
What we would like to call ‘the usual suspects’ are the different outlets of Oberweis & Fischer throughout the city. Both bakeries offer free Wifi and the usual service. It can get crowded and loud, so we wouldn’t recommend holding your conference call there but for catching up on emails it’s perfect. There are various locations throughout the city center.
Another place we frequent for getting work done is Exki in Auchan, where we especially like the small second floor with the comfy couches.
5 Rue Alphonse Weicker
Hours: open Monday to Thursday 7.30am till 8pm, Fridays 7.30am till 9pm and Saturdays 9am till 7pm
Across the street from Auchan is also Vapiano, which offers a bit more of peace and quiet but only outside of lunch hours. We warned you.
44 av. J.-F. Kennedy
Hours: open Sunday to Thursday 11am till 11pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am till 12am
If you find yourself in Bonnevoie, Bouneweger Stuff is one of our top picks. Don’t let the name scare you. Bouneweger Stuff is a welcoming, hip local establishment. In one corner you’ll find stacks of books perched beside comfy couches and chairs, in case you need help procrastinating. Old-fashioned school desks line the main room, and one entire wall is a chalkboard dedicated to their extensive drink menu.
Fun to know: Step through the dark velvet curtain hanging in front of the doorway, and you’ll also step into a bit of Luxembourgish film history. Bouneweger Stuff was the filming location for the sitcom Comeback about three young friends who try to convince an old 80s singer to get Luxembourg back into the Eurovision Song Contest.
1, rue du Cimetière
Hours: open Sunday – Friday 11am-1am; Saturdays from 10am-1am
We would also like to mention the cafeterias of the Casino and Mudam, easy to reach and interesting locations with fabulous interiors, where you can get your work done while catching up on the latest exhibition.
3, Park Dräi Eechelen
Hours: open Monday to Tuesday and Thursday to Friday from 12am to 5pm, Wednesdays from 12pm to 11pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11am to 3pm
41, rue Notre-Dame,
Hours: open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11am till 7pm and Thursdays from 11am to 11pm
On a sunny day one of the many park benches in municipal park is a great place for setting up an outdoor office using the free city wide wifi.
Another lovely and relaxing place is the garden of Villa Vauban, next to Charlies Gare in the city center. As a bonus, during lunch time and depending on the day, a food truck is on site with tasty treats.
18, avenue Émile Reuter
Hours: open Monday through Sunday, closed on Tuesday, from 10am till 6pm and on Thursdays until 9pm
Of course there are also plenty of Co-working spaces throughout town. Co-working spaces are great places to get your work done, while also meeting people in the same situation as you. You might even find a new collaborator or a new business opportunity.
As you can see, there are plenty of places in Luxembourg to work from, some obvious, some not so much. Let us know what your favourite “out of office” work place is so we can add it to the list!
