Hungarian population in Luxembourg: 1,880 in 2019 versus 935 in 2011 (source: Statec). The Hungarian community is an ever growing number and we also have to mention Hungarians working – and living their everyday life – in Luxembourg, but residing in the neighboring countries.
The Hungarians of Luxembourg have quite an active social, cultural and online community life.
