TRANSPORTS IN LUXEMBOURG
- Maps, and how to reach Campus Belval.
- There are direct trains from Campus Belval to Luxembourg city (40 minutes), and also bus connections.
There are direct trains from Campus Belval to the nearby city Esch (only 5 minutes).
Any train/bus travel in Luxembourg costs only 2 Euros.
- There is no centralised number to call a Taxi, but various Taxi companies. For example:
Webtaxi, Mondial Taxis.
Taking a Taxi may be very expensive, we recommend you to book a taxi in advance and agree on a flat rate (taxis waiting e.g. at the
station do not apply a flat rate).
- We ask you to take care of the accomodation yourself (find a hotel, make a reservation).
In case you apply for accomodation funding and you are eligible, we will take care of the accomodation for you:
the standard accommodation is in a double room shared with another participant, probably in the modern Youth Hostel in Esch-sur-Alzette.
- The Youth Hostel in Esch-sur-Alzette has very high standards, and it is closely located to the train station.
You can reach Campus Belval by train in 5 minutes. The reception is open 24/7.
Bedsheets are provided, but towels and soap/shampoo you have to bring yourself.
You can also check the availability of other Youth Hostels in Luxembourg.

Of course, you should mention that you are coming to our Summer School. Nevertheless, by booking on the internet (e.g. booking.com, expedia.de) you may have better prices.
