According to WP, Luxembourg shows nearly 100% trilinguilism (German, French and Luxembourghish). Can someone confirm this? User:upamanyuwikitravel

I don't see WP claiming that -- if anything, it states that some 300k people speak Lëtzebuergesch worldwide, out of 480,222 Luxembourg citizens. Jpatokal 09:55, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
By finishing their elementary studies in Luxembourg, everybody commands to a near-native level of German and also to French 100% sufficient to administer. Luxemburgish is spoken in every native family, it is maybe closest to German. As for immigrants, most children are able to converse in Luxemburgish, however the level of their skills may vary. Their parents rarely learn to speak it, as French (especially with some German knowledge) is more than enough to make themselves understood. Luxemburgers however regard it disrespectful or simply overly lax if foreigners do not even make an attempt to learn the national language. As for the "Talk" section. When I was there, I saw a number of road signs and other things written in German such as "einfaedeln lassen" or "Abstand beachten", nonetheless is the majority in French. Also in McDonald's, the menu is in German, but the cashiers are not likely to understand it in any other language than French (seldom English), as in most of the cases they are immigrants from former French colonies. Or at least that is what I experienced. I would be happy if someone local took a look at this section, because as far as I know, this topic is much more difficult and wants a more profound insight, when which langugae is to speak. I received strange looks when said something in the inappropriate language. They have stict rules (or rather habits) when how to speak. Many thanks, Ferike333 15:40, 3 October 2011 (EDT)

hotels.lu[edit]

I've tentatively restored hotels.lu -- it's not just an aggregator, but the official site of Luxembourg's independent hotel association ("Sélection des Hôtels-Restaurants indépendants du Grand Duché de Luxembourg Hotels.lu a.s.b.l."). Many of the smaller hotels listed within do not have homepages and do not show up in normal hotel booking engines, while the large chain hotels which do show up elsewhere (Hilton etc) are missing from hotels.lu.

Get in entry requirements[edit]

In case anyone wants to know the source of my edits to include information about the visa exemption for 'Annex II' nationals to work during their 90 day visa-free entry, see this European Union document - [1]. Yeahtravel 16:49, 6 June 2011 (EDT)
