ÉCOLE D’HÔTELLERIE ET DE TOURISME DU LUXEMBOURG
The École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL) in Diekirch is the only establishment to offer full-time Horeca courses and the only one in Luxembourg where you can study tourism. The school’s philosophy, ‘The art of educating and teaching’, focuses on the particular nature of the relationship and behavioural skills required in the hospitality industry.
Our graduates will leave with the confidence that they have acquired interpersonal skills on top of the foundations of their chosen profession. Allied to the professional skills they acquire, these personal qualities will ensure that they go on to have a successful career.
For this reason, the EHTL has implemented an educational approach that is tailored to the requirements of the job market or further studies that await the students when they leave. The teaching staff provide support to the students as they acquire knowledge and skills based on a solid professional foundation. The students are encouraged to embark on a voyage of self-discovery, set themselves goals and construct their own personal educational pathway based on their values and convictions that will lead them towards excellence – the pursuit of excellence being the central theme of the EHTL.
As part of their studies, the students also have the chance to discover the world of work and its requirements during annual (10-week) internships with Luxembourgish or international companies. The experience they gain on these placements will facilitate their transition from education to employment. Foreign placements have the additional advantage of preparing the students for the demands of professional mobility.
The modest size of our school, which has just 300 students, means we can offer them personalised and effective care. There is a real sense of school community here because our students have a timetable of lessons, work closely with their teachers, eat together and take part in competitions. The bonds formed at the EHTL tend to last beyond their time here, as shown by the popularity of the school’s alumni association throughout the last 50 years and more.

A new Technician’s Diploma in Tourism is set up to respond to changes in Luxembourg’s tourism sector.
