French community in Luxembourg

The French community is the second largest foreign community in Luxembourg with more than 45.000 residents. It has increased since the 70s, from 2.5% of the population to 7.6% today, with a sharp acceleration of French settling in Luxembourg since 2011.

The preferred French municipalities of residence are close to the capital. French residents represent 17.3% of the population in the city of Luxembourg and slightly more than 14% respectively in Strassen and Hespérange.

Despite being the 2nd foreign community in the country, french people represent less than 10% of naturalized persons since 2010. Less than 4,500 residents people are binationals French and Luxembourgers, and more than 2/3 of French applicants of Luxembourg nationality are non-residents.

To these figures, we must also add the more than 100,000 French border workers, who represent more than 50% of cross-border workers in Luxembourg. This figure is expected to increase in the coming years given the needs of the Luxembourg labor market.

French is one of the 3 official languages in Luxembourg with german and luxembourgish.
