Luxembourg City fared well in a European survey, with 9 out of 10 residents saying they’re satisfied and respondents ranking it second for LGBTQ friendliness.
The European Commission report on quality of life in European cities, published on Tuesday, polled over 58,000 people in 83 cities. In Luxembourg, 94.2% of respondents said the Luxembourg capital was a good place to live in general, compared to the report average of 91%, and 95% said they were satisfied living there.
Of all the cities compared, Zurich came out top with 100% and Istanbul had the lowest score with 54%. Luxembourg scored second-highest, behind Glasgow, for cities that are considered good for gay and lesbian people to live.
Respondents also rated it a good place for elderly people to live (94%), for cultural facilities (91%), cleanliness (94%) and public spaces (90%).
The only segment it scored badly on was finding reasonably priced accommodation. With only 12% of respondents saying it was easy to find good housing at a reasonable price, Luxembourg ranked among the 10 lowest scoring cities behind Geneva, Munich and Hamburg.
