The Grand Duchy’s capital is the 31st least expensive city to have a beer, a travel website has said.
The average price of a 33cl brew this year was $3.57, according to GoEuro’s “Beer Price Index 2016”. The study blended the cost of imported and local brands sold in bars and supermarkets in 70 cities around the world. Luxembourg City placed between Liverpool ($3.46) and Brussels ($3.64).
The most expensive European cities were Lausanne ($9.51), Zurich ($5.69) and Oslo ($5.57), and the cheapest were Krakow ($1.87), Kiev ($1.66) and Bratislava ($1.65), the company said.
Lausanne was also the place with the dearest beer in the world. Globally it was followed by Hong Kong ($6.22) and Singapore ($5.75). Likewise, Bratislava had the best price worldwide; it was slightly cheaper there than in Kiev ($1.66) and Cape Town ($1.87).
