I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!! Here's the scoop on where to eat gelato in Lux!
26 June 2024

Pick 1 – Bonomeria – Gelateria Artigianale

This Italian ice cream parlour in Belair is a 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 strikingly close distance to 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-Sunday 12pm to 8pm

Pick 2 – Mammamia

You’ll find Mammamia 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!

Where: 1 Boulevard Emile Krieps, L-4530 Differdange
Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 7:30am to 10pm, Sunday 8:30am to 3pm

Pick 3 – Glacier Bargello

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

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

Where: 13-15 rue du Fort Elisabeth, Luxembourg/ 131 Avenue du Bois, Limpertsberg/1 rue Charles Kieffer, Grass (Inside Kirsch). You can also pick up their treats at Cactus, the City Concorde, and the Pall Center (Strassen and Steinsel).

Pick 4 – 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

Pick 5 – 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. In fact, SmooJo is so popular they have a second location (in Esch).

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

Where: 11c, Avenue de la Porte-Neuve L-2227 Luxembourg
Opening hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10am to 6pm

Pick 6 – 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.

This fantastic place is the product of 4 Luxembourgish friends’ passion for ice cream. You’ll find this ice cream parlour with modern design in the Belair neighbourhood.
