Around the world in 182 days: Luxembourg

Where Luxembourg’s resources become your opportunities. Pavilion of Luxembourg at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, UAE.

Resourceful Luxembourg. Delve into an immersive experience of Luxembourg’s diversity, connectivity, enterprising spirit, far-reaching commitment to sustainability and beautiful nature.

Quick facts – Luxembourg:

  • First free public transport. We were the first country in the world to provide free public transport.
  • 50% foreign population. Almost 50% of Luxembourg’s population are foreign passport holders.
  • The Schengen visa. This visa, allowing visitors to visit the Schengen area, was named after a village in Luxembourg.

In the Luxembourg Pavilion:

  • The only pavilion to have a slide.
  • A gift shop selling Luxembourg-designed products and gifts.
  • A stunning architecture.
  • Experience a small but smart nation. As a small but smart country, Luxembourg continuously reinvented itself to adapt to ever-changing circumstances. Luxembourg’s openness, dynamism, and reliability as a country will be key assets when it comes to being part of a shared solution to a changed world. Therefore, our theme of ‘Resourceful Luxembourg’ can be understood as a commitment to administer our resources in a way that contributes to a better world for all of us.
  • Escape into the green. Did you know that Luxembourg was ranked the second greenest country in the world? We love our woods and therefore we dedicated a large section of the Luxembourg Pavilion to the country’s lush nature. Under the theme of ‘BEAUTIFUL’, we recreated a mesmerizing scenery of enchanted rocks, flourishing flora, and abundant trees. Visit the Luxembourg Pavilion if you fancy a quick trip into the green.
  • An experience for your 5 senses. The pavilion’s architecture and scenography will appeal to your sight as you’ll listen to the sounds of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra. You’ll enjoy the smell of Luxembourg’s lush woods and the giant slide, an ode to the Luxembourgish traditional fair dating back to the Late Middle Ages. Finally, at the pavilion’s restaurant you’ll enjoy Luxembourg fusion cuisine prepared by Michelin-starred chef Kim Kevin De Dood.
  • ‘Schengen Lounge’. The restaurant is managed by the Michelin-starred chef Kim Kevin de Dood in partnership with Jumeirah Group. Kim Kevin de Dood will supervise 34 students from the ‘Luxembourg School of Hotel Management and Tourism’ that will work at the restaurant.
