• Café Luxembourg Amsterdam

Café Luxembourg | a classic for almost 30 years

Welcome at Café Luxembourg

At the end of the eighties, when Luxembourg openened, the Grand Café instantaneously became one of the few really famous venues of Amsterdam

Everyone who lives in the city but also its many visitors know Luxembourg, either through one of the many guides that have labelled it a “must see” or, even better, by coincidence. Because it is hard to avoid the café. A stylish oasis at one of the busiest spots of the city. The unique “Parisian” terrace that makes “people watching” almost an understatement.

A warm welcome to everyone!
