The Ambassador's Corner

Dear visitor,

Welcome to the homepage of the Embassy of Luxembourg in Copenhagen. While we are established as a diplomatic mission in Denmark, we are also covering Sweden, Finland and Norway, thus representing our home country in Northern Europe at large.

In ordinary times, we follow political, economic social and cultural developments in those four countries, promote business relations between Luxembourg and the Nordic States and take care to expand our networking activities day by day. The second semester of 2015, however, during which Luxembourg is holding the rotating EU chairmanship, has mobilised the largest part of our efforts in supporting our Government’s work in promoting the advancement of EU affairs, on the basis of a Presidency programme defined in a series of priorities, fitting into the larger multi-annual planning of the EU’s development, in line with the views and objectives of both member States and the European Institutions.

At the same time, we were able to give a “personalised”  touch to the implementation of the Luxembourg Presidency programme through the organisation of various meetings, conferences, seminars, lectures and cultural events in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki. Should you be curious to find out about the whole range of activities that we have integrated into our Embassy schedule, I kindly invite you to browse through the chronology of events that we have lined up on this web page.

As our EU Presidency is drawing to a close and the steering wheel will be in the hands of the Netherlands as of 1 January 2016, we will be reverting to our regular activities, including through the provision of a number of consular services to the public as well as general and, when required, specific information about Luxembourg. Should you know Luxembourg, our homepage and the numerous links it contains may be able to rekindle your interest towards our country; should you not be familiar with the Grand-Duchy at all, we hope that the tool that we are providing may arouse your curiosity.

I wish you well.



Cordial regards,

Gérard Philipps

Ambassador of Luxembourg

to Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway
