Travel recommendations
Luxembourg can be conveniently reached by train or air. French TGV trains connect Luxembourg to Paris (2 hours, 15 minutes) as well as to the south (train passes by Lyon and ends in Marseille), and also Brussels has a direct connection (3 hours). Direction Germany the train connections are worse, and many include a bus ride of more than one hour to Saarbrücken. Flights connect Luxembourg airport directly to Paris, London, Munich, Frankfurt, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome, Copenhagen and several other major European cities. The airport is located close to the city center and a regular city bus (nr. 16; download the time table here) runs regularly between airport and the train station. The ride takes 22 minutes and the ticket costs 2€ for 2 hour validity or 4€ for a daily card. You can buy the ticket from a machine at the bus stop.

Hotel City is located at walking distance from the train station but you need to take a bus (nr. 2 or 4, direction "Lycée Technique Michel Lutius", ride takes about 20 minutes) to the university for the meeting. Hotel Victor Hugo is a 15 minute walk from the university campus where the meeting will be held, but from the train station you need to take a bus (also 2 or 4) to "Fondation Pescatore". When you get out of the bus you can see the "HOTEL" sign of Hotel Victor Hugo on its wall straight ahead, about a 5 minute walk in the direction the bus was going.

Here you can download maps with the key locations, optimized for Hotel Victor Hugo and for Hotel City, respectively.

Taxis are very expensive in Luxembourg. Consider at least 35€ to get from the airport to the hotel. We strongly recommend to take the bus. You can buy the ticket from a machine at the bus stop.
