An excellent location for Smokers

Having just returned from my third visit to Luxembourg in the last year it is a welcome refuge for smokers in a shrinking list of destinations in Europe that afford a welcome to us addicts !!!

Cheap Cigarettes - half the price of the UK with the EU duty paid, so your trip pays for itself. Also they are the same price everywhere so easy to buy.

Smoking allowed in Bars and Hotel Rooms.

Smoking Booth post security at the Airport - who cares about delays!!

Thankyou Luxembourg and long may it continue.

Tobacco and gasoline buying tourist are welcome, local rumour has it the net income from the sales allows to cover the state pension payments. Thank you for smoking and next time please come by car and fill up the tank before leaving, pass the word please.

Unfortunately for OP, (probably) from summer 2013 on, the EU regulations that forbid smoking in bars will be implemented in Luxembourg as well.

Although a non smoker myself all smokers are welcome to Luxembourg. Please buy lots of tobacco products, petrol and diesel at very low prices. A small diversion when driving in Europe can pay for itself.

There are a number of high quality cigar shops.

Just out of interest, are there many/any bars which are non-smoking or would that be commercial suicide?

There are a number of bars that are non smoking. This is not commercial suicide as the majority of people in Luxembourg are non smokers.

Despite the fact that most Luxembourgish don't smoke, most bars allow smokers, though.

It is legal as long as it is for personal use. Less than 800 cigarettes is always seen as personal use, above that you might be asked questions.

That said, I have never seen border control on the German border.
