Ettelbrück is small but still one of the biggest cities in the North of Luxembourg. You will notice that you’re surround by forests and nature. If you look outside the windows from the hospital you will probably see cows in a field. It’s a very charming region. Nevertheless, you have a train station very close by. By train you can reach Luxembourg city in under 30 min. If you love nightlife, the busy daily life of a big city, Ettelbrück might not be the place for you. If you like nature, a less crowded city and don’t mind using public transport, this will be the place for you.
UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS
The CHdN (Centre Hospitalier du Nord) is the biggest hospital in the North of Luxembourg and one of the most modern once in the country. It might be a bit smaller than you are used to but this won't be a disadvantage at all. Furthermore, it offers the biggest dialysis unit in the country and many other disciplines.
