Administrative divisions of Luxembourg

Luxembourg is divided into districts, which are divided into cantons, which are divided into communes (=municipalities). A dozen of the communes have official city status, and one, Luxembourg City, is further divided into quarters (unofficial subdivision).


  • Districts 1
  • Cantons 2
  • Communes 3
    • Cities 3.1
  • Quarters of Luxembourg City 4


Luxembourg is divided into three districts:


These districts are divided into a total of 12 cantons.


The cantons are divided into communes, the lowest administrative division in Luxembourg.


12 communes have legal city status, some since the early Middle Ages. The City of Luxembourg, the nation's capital, is the largest city in the country.

Quarters of Luxembourg City

Below the official administrative level of the commune, Luxembourg City has further unofficial administrative subdivisions, known as quarters. The twenty-four quarters of Luxembourg City are a de facto subdivision without legal basis used to simplify public administration.
