Brussels and Luxembourg

Brussels and Luxembourg picture

Most EU officials start their career in Brussels or Luxembourg, the seats of most EU institutions and the beating hearts of EU policy-making.

People from all over Europe relocate to these two cities to work for the EU or other international organisations so expect to meet, mingle and have a great time with locals as well as with a vibrant expats community. 

Brussels and Luxembourg enjoy a high quality of life, are very green, cosmopolitan and welcoming; they have a lively cultural and social scene, parks, historic buildings, museums, restaurants and bars.

There are excellent road, rail and flight connections in both cities, so whenever you will miss home or need a holiday break many other cities and destinations will only be a few hours away.
