Statutory holidays: 25
Public holidays: 10

Luxembourg is considered the richest country in Europe with its GDP per capita more than two and half times the European Union average, according to Eurostat.

Workers are entitled to 25 days of annual leave after being employed for one year, not including public holidays. If employees work on a public holiday, they are entitled to three times their standard salary for that day.

Luxembourg’s high living standards and reputation as a tax haven have attracted a number of international corporations such as ArcelorMittal, Skype and eBay to set up headquarters.

The country is also a big draw for cross-border workers due to its small size in comparison to neighboring Germany, Belgium and France, along with being home to many European institutions and foreign banks.
