Luxembourg's main station:  Location map

Luxembourg has one main central station, normally shown in timetables as plain Luxembourg.  The current station was built 1907-1913 to replace an earlier wooden building of 1859.  It's the hub for the domestic rail network run by CFL (Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois) and for international trains to Brussels, Paris and other destinations.

At the far end of the main hall, turn left, go down the steps shown in the photo below, turn right into the main underpass (souterrain nord) which has steps & an escalator up to platforms 4-14.

An overbridge (passerelle nord) also links platforms 3-14 at the northern end of the station, this has lifts as well as steps between the bridge and each platform.
