In my travels I have often wondered if tap water in Luxembourg is safe. After all, it is a small country with a relatively low population and a large expatriate community. The main water supply comes from the River Limoges, which flows into the Rhone Valley, but this has its own problems.
One of the main concerns about tap water in Luxembourg is that it may not be potable. Some experts think this may be a problem because it is run through a treatment plant. The treatment process removes the organic contamination from the water, such as chlorine and heavy metals. However, when it comes out, it has to be treated again to make sure it is safe for drinking. It would also be necessary to test the water for contaminants before drinking.
I have found that when I drink bottled water or municipal water, there is no problem with drinking the water from Luxembourg. It is quite clear, has a good taste and doesn''t smell or taste like the tap water you get in Lond
The estimated price of bottled water
$1.11 in USD (1.5-liter)

Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
