Operated by Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois (CFL), Luxembourg’s railways form the backbone of the country’s public transport network, linking the most important towns.
The six Luxembourg motorways cover a total distance of 147 km, linking the capital with Trier (Germany), Thionville (France) and Arlon(Belgium) as well as with Esch-sur-Alzette and Ettelbruck in Luxembourg. Luxembourg’s motorways are toll free. The speed limit is normally 130 km/h, 110 km/h in rainy weather. With 56.8 km of motorway per 1,000 km2, Luxembourg probably now has the highest density of motorways in Europe.
Comprehensive bus services linking the towns and villages of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg are controlled by the RGTR (Régime général des transports routiers) under the Ministry of Transport.
All transport companies work together under the Verkéiersverbond, which uses tickets for all bus and train routes. As of 2016, a 2h ticket is 2€, whilst a one-day ticket is 4€.
Plans for reintroducing trams:
Luxembourg’s last tramline closed in 1964 but the city is now planning to reintroduce trams by 2017, initially from the central station to Kirchberg and then to Luxembourg Airport.
Moselle tourist boats at Remich:
The River Moselle forms a 42-km natural border between Luxembourg and Germany in the south-east of the country. Especially in the summer months, the Marie-Astrid tourist boat operates regular services along the river.
Luxembourg Airport at Findel, some 6 km to the north of the city, is Luxembourg’s only commercial airport. Thanks to its long runway (4,000 m), even the largest types of plane are able to use its facilities.
Luxair, Luxembourg’s international airline, and Cargolux, a cargo-only airline, operate out of the airport. In 2008, the airport ranked as Europe’s 5th largest and the world’s 23rd by cargo tonnage. A large new airport terminal building was opened in 2008 with more modern facilities, including an underground carpark.
The trunk natural gas pipelines in Luxembourg have a total length of 155 km (2007). Russia and Norway are the main producers. The Luxembourg network is connected to Germany, France and Belgium.
