Where to find Luxembourg's best food trucks
There was a time when food vans equaled poor quality food and dubious hygiene standards.
Things have come a long way since then, and in Luxembourg you'll find a whole host of food trucks in and around the City and in the regions, offering delicious, organic, locally-sourced and freshly prepared food.
Although times have been tough on many of the food truck operators, a surprising number are still open, with a limited weekly agenda. We recommend that you check the links in this article, as where they'll be on which days may change.
Street food and food truck festivals
You can sample truck food at many festivals and events, including the Eat It Festival at Rotondes in March, and this year's Foodtruck and Music Festival will be on 16 and 17 July 2021 at Boevange-sur-Attert. There'll be a food village with many trucks, and several DJs providing the sounds, plus a kids corner with a bouncy castle and games. Tickets must be purchased in advance and Covid check rules apply, plus masks must be worn.
In the meantime, here's a list of food trucks, what they offer, and where you can find them.
