Sport, gastronomy, nature, guided tours, culture or even local specialties: the VisitLuxembourg application guides its users to local tourist activities with, as a bonus, all the practical information as well as the possibility of booking online and planning their stay in the smallest details.
“We want to support our visitors in the best possible way, while emphasizing the modern flair and the extraordinary spirit of the tourist destination of Luxembourg”, comments Dr. Sebastian Reddeker, CEO of Luxembourg for Tourism in a press release.
Integrated “Travel Stories” and the LuxembourgCard
The GIE unveiled this application on Tuesday, alongside the Minister of Tourism Lex Delles (DP). For him, “this travel companion is aimed at tourists as well as residents and makes it possible to plan a personalized tourist stay”.
Available for free on the App Store and Google Play, the app is available in German, French and English. It also offers hiking routes, an activity which is growing in popularity in Luxembourg, but also “Travel Stories” to inspire users through stories in the form of podcasts.
“It is a lively and dynamic application which is updated regularly. The number of attractions displayed is constantly changing, ”said Lex Delles. The tool also integrates the LuxembourgCard, a tourist pass valid throughout the country offering discounts and free access to more than 90 attractions.
Last year, Luxembourg totaled 1.5 million tourist nights in its tourist accommodation, including 840,000 in hotels, hostels and pensions, according to Statec.
The largest contingent of visitors came from the Netherlands (27%) ahead of domestic tourism (20%) which was boosted by the 50 euro voucher and Belgium (16%).
