    Brazilian population in Luxembourg

    Brazilian people living in Luxembourg: 1.999 in 2018 versus 1.203 in 2011 (source Statec.lu)

    It is quite easy for brazilian people to integrate as portuguese is spoken by a large portuguese community living also in Luxembourg.

    As almost half of Luxembourg’s population is foreign, the country, its population and its institutions are accustomed to receive foreigners and answer their questions. There are many supportive communities, which are extremely active and voluntary. As we are in the digital era, brazilian people will find plenty of blogs and websites with advice on moving to Luxembourg, in different languages, but mainly in English.

    Traditional and recurrent events in Luxembourg

    • Independance Day : September 7th, « grito do Ipiranga » 1822.
    • A Brazilian film festival in Luxembourg is organized every year since 2011. Produced in 4 cities, Luxembourg, Esch, Dudelange and Bettembourg, in collaboration with 6 cinemas, it proposes the screening of Brazilian films (see below Associations section).

          Made in Brazil

          Made in Brazil is an association which has three ambitions: to promote the Brazilian culture, to help the diaspora and to support the development process in Brazil.
          They sponsor the actions of the Luxembourg Boy Scouts when they act in our country. Niki, the president of the association, cooks a delicious “feijoada” that he serves on his stand during the multicultural events organized by the municipalities or cultural circles, and he is present in almost all street festivals.
          Those are opportunities for him and his wife, Ana Claudia – who prepares delicious cakes – to promote our culture through typical Brazilian dishes and drinks. Made in Brazil is the co-founder and eternal sponsor of the Brazilian Movie Festival.
