Can you drink the tap water in Luxembourg?
The US Center for Disease Control’s travel advisory confirms the safety of the tap water in Luxembourg (source). However, it would be best if you take special precautions toward the unregulated water sources in some areas. Like all countries though, water accessibility, sanitation, and treatment vary widely from location to location, so we encourage looking for specific city information.
What do people in Luxembourg think about the tap water?
Luxembourg’s tap water is safe to drink. The majority of drinking water is supplied by the reservoir Lac de la Haute Sûre, just outside Esch-sur-Sûre; the remainder is sourced from fresh-water springs.
The food and tap water supply in Luxembourg is perfectly fine and the country's healthcare system is first class. The climate is average even though the summers can get hot. However these temperatures rarely rise much above 30°C.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
