Is a salary of Euros 3,700 net enough for a single person to live comfortably in Luxembourg City?
#Pepter on Dec 17, 2016 :
to Aida

Nope, if you have to rent an appartment then 2.5 is almost nothing, keep in mind that prices are high there on food, on service even higher! So you will have to shop in Lidl's etc, no parties in downtown

Hello friends,

Please advise what is considered to be a good income for a family of 3 in Luxembourg?

I am an SAP Software Engineer, thinking of relocating to this location with my wife and a 2 month old little daughter, considering a 4k (net) per month job offer. We will need to rent 2 bedrooms apartment, no car.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Regards,
Vladislav

I think salary above 3.5k (net) you could consider 'good'.
