I'd say that the average salary is not wrong, but do remind that average doesn't mean median.
Median after taxes is around 3K with meal vouchers = 3,2k

We live in a 3 bedroom in the city center, 2900 EUR rent + 185 utilities.

The prices mentioned on this site about Luxembourg are correct, except for avg monthly salary, which is more around 4800 EUR.

Quality of life is superb here, just like the southwest of Germany and west of the Netherlands where we also lived.

Water is cheaper though, you can easily find 2 liters for 0,20 EUR

An appartment 3 bedrooms in city center is about 3700 EUR. Prices reflected in this website got right the general price considering the older contracts, but wrong the current price.

I am currently living in Spain with my family,we are planning to relocate to luxembourg,please is there any support groups,or organization i can join for support and information.thanks
LuxTrust on Jan 15, 2023:
With a good education and good foreign language skills especially in German/Luxembourgish and French you can get a good middle class. The most expensive thing is the rent (>30€ per Squaremeter and more). Cost of living is upscale. Negative is bad infrastructure and partly catastrophic conditions in the authorities. You have to put up with a lot of traffic jams and very long travel times. Home office is not welcome at all. Basically, I would advise against coming to Luxembourg because here just slowly goes down because of Corona / economic crisis.

i didn't consider the cost of a private school. In Luxembourg City there are english based public schools with no tuition fees.

Hi, you wrote "For a family of three or four with no one else working, the situation changes:
3500 x 0.75 (there are tax benefits for children and non working partner, it might be underestimated)= 2625
-1500 for an apartment (including utilities): 1125
-800 for groceries and related items (in Germany)= 325
-200 for other general expenses= 125 (disposable income)"....

How...if school for one child is 1.260 eur?
Alex on Oct 08, 2020:

I'm an Italian citizen, married and father to two children (6 and 3) and i'll be moving to Luxembourg alone for work.
I need to know how income tax is applied given that my family (wife and children) is settled in Italy (wife has a job).
Do I get tax deductions for children even though they live in a different country in the EU?
Any idea about family and/or children allowances in my case?

Olusegun: It depends on several factors: 1.- languages you speak (It would be ideal to dominate french, german and english or at least french and english); 2.- your nationality: eu/eea/efta (increases probailities significantly) - non eu (decreases probabilities significantly); 3.- your occupational sector: banking, finance, it, accounting, tax (increases probabilities).
The second factor as i explained in a previous comment is especially important, in the current situation for non eu citizens who are not sponsored by a company or don't have the graduate visa it's really hard to find a job.

Luca:
It depends, for a single person, your budget could be like this: you'll spend around 650-900 for a decent room. If you cross the border to Germany in order to buy groceries and general items, you could end up spending close to 350-400. Let's leave 100 euros for cellphone, healthcare, and other general expenses. Therefore your budget will be as follows:
3500 x 0.7 (your taxes could be around 30%, it might be an overestimation though)= 2450.
-900 for a room= 1550.
-400 for groceries and related items= 1150
-100 for other general expenses= 1050. (disposable income)
For a family of three or four with no one else working, the situation changes:
3500 x 0.75 (there are tax benefits for children and non working partner, it might be underestimated)= 2625
-1500 for an apartment (including utilities): 1125
-800 for groceries and related items (in Germany)= 325
-200 for other general expenses= 125 (disposable income)

Yes..The transportation is free with bottomless drinks and lunch inside the bus. The taxi free also if you want to travel all Luxembourg for a day. Just ask the taxi driver and he will be happy to stroll with you.
