What I Bought on my First Outing in Luxembourg

Luxembourg Shopping January 2015

During my first few days in Luxembourg, I popped out on my own one morning to discover what a few of the shops in the city centre had to offer. I’m not used to having H&M, LUSH, HEMA, and Sephora all within a few minutes’ walking distance, so it was all Very Exciting.

Some things I bought!

I made cakes for our neighbours in the apartments below us, smelt oh-so-good, and found a book from my to-read list, in English! The fact that all the things I bought from LUSH were 50% off still boggles my mind. HEMA is also clearly my new favourite bits-and-bobs shop. I later visited it again and bought ALL their cards.

Any other cool shop suggestions for me to visit in Luxembourg? I like pretty stationery, books (in English), beauty products, food, and skater dresses.

    Hema is just in front of my office, I still don’t remember how I was living before they open!
    I cannot buy tights at H&M – my problem, I suppose – as after couple of washes they are starting to fall down :( I am always going to Calzedonia – same side than Hema, a bit further going to the bridge.
    In the same area I love Devred for men clothes. They have great quality (better than Zara, definitely) and small prices, above all they have great promotion each and every week. In front of Hema, there is Claire’s. It is one of my favorite for fake eyelashes, phone covers and hair accessories.
    Most of the fancy food shops are unfortunately extremely expensive, but if you pass in Rue Bender, just in the Station area, there is this lovely shop called La Pause du Gourmet. They have delicious charcuterie, cheese (ohhhh cheese!) and wine. The owner is a very nice person, you can have even lunch there and they organize private events in the evening. I did my birthday there last here. It is not extremely cheap, but worth a try.

    Yes, Hema is pretty cool! If you are into crafts, you have to go to Bastelkiste (it’s in the Gare area). They have almost everything that a diy-person’s heart desires ;). I also love Ben and Pepper in Avenue de la liberté, near the Rousegärtchen. Have fun shopping :)

    I like to read your posts! Having been in Luxembourg for just 1 month you already discovered more shops than me. :) My main spots of shopping are the `usual` brands: Promod, H&M, Zara, Mango for outfits; I like also Butlers. And thanks for the reading list inspiration, I love books!

      Thanks, Betty! :) I really need to check out Butlers… it opened in Malta just before I left but I never visited, and I’ve heard a lot of good things about it :)

    I just love Hema too! Unfortunately I can’t get there by foot, I have to take the car either for Luxembourg City or Arlon. But I always invest a lot of money over there to buy a lot of stuff!!!

    Hi!

    We have been in Lux for just over 18 months and I am still as excited about it as I was in the first! It’s a gorgeous country and lovely city. I know you will stumble onto shops you love as you go,it’s like a treasure hunt. When spring and summer come, if you aren’t working, the days are gorgeous and taking a bus to anywhere in the country with your walking shoes, camera, a book, and a couple of euro, will fill up the days with stunning adventures.

    Oh and if you enjoyed Agatha Christie… look for her book called “The Crooked House” it’s brilliant!

    Carry on enjoying the adventure!
