AWCL Special Events

Throughout the year, the AWCL organizes several events for members. Sometimes these events are aimed to raise money to help us achieve our philanthropic goals, and sometimes they are held to provide a bit of  ‘home’ here in Luxembourg.

Whatever the focus, these events give our members and their families a chance to socialize, celebrate, learn, and support each other. Committees are formed to assist with the planning and organizing of these special events, so if you are interested in helping, let us know!


Living in Luxembourg Chats

These informal chats are held at the Clubhouse and are aimed at helping newcomers orient to life in the Grand Duchy.

Moving to a new country and culture brings a mix of emotions: excitement, anticipation, exhilaration and joy compete with anxiety, foreboding, worry and even dread. It can be an unsettling combination, but it is not at all uncommon.

The AWCL helps ease the transition through a series of chats on topics of interest to those who have just arrived. Topics include thriving in a new culture, health care, shopping/recycling, transportation and communications.

These chats are inspired by the AWCL's "Living in Luxembourg" guidebook that is available at the Clubhouse. If you would like to assist and share your expertise and experience on any of these topics, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

"Living in Luxembourg" guidebook is available at the Clubhouse for €10 for members and €15 for non-members.
