Editor's Guide to Fitness & Sports in Luxembourg
Here's a short guide to our Fitness & Sports section for Luxembourg.
Moving abroad isn’t just about starting a new job, learning the language and setting up home. Once you’ve arrived and settled in, you’ll probably want to find out where you can play your favourite sport, the best places to run or walk in your neighbourhood or where to find the best dance classes or sailing lessons if you're on a coast. Start by checking out the local sports leagues, gyms and other sports associations.
Why not take up a national sport, such as hiking or Nordic walking?
Even if your preferred sport is obscure, you’ll find that most countries will have a club associated with it, whether it’s football, cricket, rugby, swimming, tennis or squash, baseball, scuba diving or hang-gliding.
Expat and local networking
Use connections to find the locations of the best places to practise a sport or to keep fit. Ask other expats which dancing schools they’d recommend for their children, which swimming school they use, the best pools to take the children to, for recreation or for serious training.
You can always ask in the Expatica forums. If you are more into yoga and Pilates, then find out where the best teachers give classes and try it out.
The best result can only be a healthier and happier you.
International sports clubs and other groups
If you’d like to join an international club, the American football team or International Women’s football club, then check out Expatica’s Groups & Clubs listings, and also in our A-Z listings under Fitness or Groups & Clubs. Like cricket? Why not try the Optimists Cricket Club or the Duck and Ferrets Cricket Club?
