A guide to office space in Luxembourg City

The capital of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Luxembourg City has a small population of just over 100,000 but has the second highest per capita GDP in the world, behind Qatar.

The city has developed into a major administrative and banking centre while also being the seat for many major institutions of the European Union, including the European Court of Justice, the European Investment Bank and the European Court of Auditors.

The location

Luxembourg City is situated in the heart of Western Europe, 213km from Brussels, 209km from Cologne and 372km from Paris.

The city itself is not very large (area covering 51km²) but straddles hills and drops into two gorges meaning that the layout is rather complex. It is divided into 24 separate ‘quarters’.

Looking for an office in Luxembourg City

While the CBD and the Kirchberg Quarter are still by far the most popular areas in which to rent office space, the last couple of years has seen an emergence of companies looking at the Station District and areas on the outskirts of the CBD that include Cloche d’Or and Belval.

The CBD, Kirchberg and the Station District currently have very low vacancy rates that could force businesses to look at other areas within the city.

Costs


A typical four-person serviced office in Luxembourg City can cost between €1,800 and €3,500 depending on location and quality of space. A typical desk rate is around €650 per person, per month.

However, when looking at serviced offices it is always worth keeping in mind that these costs usually cover amenities, which may include internet, meeting rooms, reception services etc., and as such can offer great value for money.


Office sizes


Instant Offices currently has 25 different locations available in Luxembourg allowing for plenty of choice in terms of office style and size.

We are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics.

Why choose Luxembourg City?

With a GDP that is expected to grow over the next couple of years at double the rate of the rest of the Eurozone it is a great time to set up business in Luxembourg.

Not only are the banking secrecy laws and tax breaks that a Luxembourg address provides very attractive but a physical presence in the city means that you will be sharing a neighbourhood with some of the world’s largest firms.

Geographically, Luxembourg couldn’t be positioned much better for business, being bordered by France, Belgium and Germany.
