Remich and Schengen

Remich Schengen are the names of a town and village located in the Southeast of Luxembourg, the small but economically richest country in Europe. Remich was renamed “Remich Town” as it was officially converted into a town in 2018.

Luxembourg Remich Town

With a population of approximately 3,500 people, Remich is located on the border of Germany and France in Luxembourg, Europe’s tax haven. So much so that a sign on the bridge over the Moselle River, which passes through the Schengen Village and defines the border between Luxembourg and Germany, actually explains the situation here very well. Here is that picture;

Apart from the few Tax Free shops in the town of Remich that sell low tax products, one of the places that can be seen is the Mini Eiffel Tower on the German side.

What to Do in Remich?

In Remich, one of the smallest towns of Luxembourg, the French and Germans, especially the French and Germans, do their food and beverage shopping here, as Europe’s lowest tax rates apply. The fact that fuel and alcohol are very cheap makes this place an economic attraction.

Cheap Shopping

According to statistics, although Luxembourg is seen as the country with the highest alcohol consumption in the world, do not be surprised by this Alcohol Consumption Rate. Because in Luxembourg and especially in border regions such as Remich Schengen, alcohol sales figures purchased by other countries are also included in this rate due to the reflection of low taxes on the label. As the population of Luxembourg is naturally low, they are considered to be the World Leaders in Alcohol Consumption. The words “remich alcool” and “remich alchol” were the most searched words for Remih by Europeans on Google. Alcohol is that serious for Remich. I can tell you about alcohol so far, produced 70cc like alcohol even cheaper than Turkey in Luxembourg. 🙂

We always talked about alcohol for Remich. Of course, alcohol is not the only thing cheap here. Remich is really cheap on products like Chocolate, Coffee and Tea. Products produced by the famous coffee brand in Turkey REMICH in Flohmark (floumoart Remich – Remich shopping center) is sold under the store called even at half the price. If you are going to shop for food and drinks from Europe, do it at Remich Shopping Stores. During the Benelux European Tour, we really got the cheapest food and beverage shopping and our gifts at Remich.

I haven’t seen a famous dish as a meal in Remich town. However, I saw Pizza Restaurants, Soup Dish and Mussels in Remich. I remember seeing a place that makes seafood, but we had to run around due to heavy rainfall. During the Remich trip, we were able to find a Mc Donalds on the Route de I’Europe road, where the restaurants were busy, and we were fed here. The only thing I remember about eating at Remich was the intense smell of onions in restaurants. 🙂

We turn every gap we find into a holiday and use all the opportunities we catch to the full. Sometimes we traveled for kilometers on the stony mountain road (Adrasan) with our vehicle, sometimes we walked for hours on narrow paths with children on lap (Gelidonya Lighthouse). We were very tired but we had no regrets.
