Ice Cream in the City

by City Savvy Luxembourg

Ice scream, you scream, we all dream of ice cream!! Summer is here, so why not cool off with a delicious scoop or two of the city’s best ice cream? Here are CSL’s top picks.

Anna & Paul Glacerie and Chocolaterie

This delicious ice cream shop in Bertrange is a must try! The shop’s design is modern and welcoming, the staff is super friendly (and don’t mind giving you a try of any of their 20 exotic flavours before making your final decision) AND you can watch the chef create his masterpieces through a giant glass window. You will see only the freshest ingredients being poured into his creations.

  • Good for: unique flavours made from the freshest of ingredients! We LOVE the spritz ice cream. 

Where4B, Rue Pletzer, Bertrange, Luxembourg
Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday 10:00am to 8:00pm

Bonomeria – Gelateria Artigianale

This Italian ice cream parlour in Belair is another top pick at CSL. The gelato here is divine. Besides the wide variety of flavours, you can find various ice cream treats to take home (we often take these treats to parties and they’re a big hit). If you decide to replace a meal with ice cream one day, we suggest the gelato stuffed brioche. If you have kids, another plus is the  striking distance of the fabulous Castle Parc.

  • Good for: making you think you’ve briefly landed in Italy. 

Where: 4 Rue Wurth-Paquet, Belair (map)
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 12:00 to 20:00

LuxFine

You’ll find LuxFine in the Opkorn mall in Differdange. We happened upon this place after doing a bit of shopping at Auchan and were highly impressed. The staff was so friendly and the ice cream was out of this world. If you’re in the area, we definitely suggest giving this place a try!

  • Good for: a pre- or post-shopping treat!

WhereBoulevard Emile Krieps, L-4530 Differdange
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 12:30pm-8:00pm, Saturday 9am to 8:00pm

Glacier Bargello

Bargello in the Gare (next to Bastelkiste craft shop). You’ll find ice creams, sorbets, frozen yoghurts and patisseries.

  • Good for: relaxing on the terrace with a refreshing treat. 

Where: 13-15 rue du Fort Elisabeth, Luxembourg (map). You can also pick up their treats at Cactus, the City Concorde, Monoprix, the Pall Center and SMETS.
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 12:00pm to 10:00pm

Veneziano

You’ll find this ice cream parlour on Place d’Armes with its colourful and irresistible displays. Don’t be put off by the crowds, it’s worth the wait and if you can get a seat at one of their outdoor tables it’s the perfect place for some people watching.

  • Good for: milkshakes, we especially love the raspberry vanilla combination

Where: 1 Place d’armes, Luxembourg (map)
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 11:00 to 7:00pm, Saturday 9:00am to 8:00pm, Sunday 11:00am to 7:00pm

SmooJo

SmooJo markets itself as a smoothie and juice bar, so you can indulge without the guilt! If you haven’t already discovered SmooJo, the healthy(ish) alternative to ice cream, then make this one your next stop and indulge in some delicious frozen yoghurt in a wide and interesting variety of flavours. Infact, SmooJo is so popular they have just recently opened a second location (in Esch). SmooJo also offers free wifi.

  • Good for: not just frozen yoghurt, try the tastiest ice coffee drinks this side of the pond.

Where: 60 Grand Rue, Luxembourg (map)
Opening hours: 12pm-7pm

Oberweis

Oh Oberweis! How we love you. So classy, so delicious, so Luxembourgish. As with their coffees, pastries and cakes, their ice cream does not disappoint. Whilst there are 5 Oberweis cafes around Luxembourg selling ice cream (Cloche d’Or, Lux Ville, City Concorde, Kirchberg and Gare), we suggest you treat yourself and head for their beautiful flagship cafe in the city centre.

  • Good for: tartes glacées – yes, that really does mean ice cream tarts. Oh my.

Where: 16 Grand-Rue, Luxembourg (map)
Opening hours: Monday to Friday 7:30am to 6:30pm, Saturday 8:00am to 7:00pm (you can find other locations with opening times here)

Reader Tip: Gelateria Franky

Where: City Concorde, just opposite Cora.

  • Good for: a pre- or post-shopping treat! There are loads of flavours and four are lactose free.

Hi, thank you for the tips where to get good ice cream in the city. In stark contrast to all other enthusiastic descriptions of ice cream parlors, you barely mention the location of Bargello ice cream and the fact that people can find it also boxed across various super markets. Any specific reason for that?

No specific reason for not going into greater detail but we are definitely fans. We listed some supermarkets where you can pick it up, but we will see if we missed some. Fabulous tip!
