UIHJ Permanent Council Luxembourg 2023

Welcome to the upcoming Spring Permanent Council of Judicial Officers in Luxembourg on May 11 and 12 2023.

Some general information

We want to make your trip to Luxembourg as easy as possible. You can reach the city by plane, train, or car.

Luxembourg has one airport, Luxembourg Airport (LUX), which is located just 6 kilometers from the city center. The airport offers a variety of direct flights from major European cities.

If you prefer to travel by train, Luxembourg has one main railway station in Luxembourg City. The station is specially well-connected to Paris (TGV, 2 hours)

The hotels for the Permanent Council are located next to each other and are just a one-minute walk away from each other, making it easy for attendees to move between them.

Event Venue

The Spring Permanent Council of Judicial Officers will take place at the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL). For more information about the ECCL, please visit their website.

ECCL, 1 rue du Fort Thüngen L-1499 Luxembourg

We are especially delighted to host the conference in Room D @ECCL.

Room D at the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL) is a unique and historic venue. This “vintage” room dates back to the 1970s and features original chairs from the European Commission of the time.

Over the years, many important events in European history have taken place in Room D. In 1995, the European summit, held in Luxembourg at the time, validated what would become the Eurogroup. The historic signing of the agreement took place in Room D.

Similarly, in the same room, the decision to enlarge the European Union became a reality in 2004.

We are honored to hold the Spring Permanent Council of Judicial Officers in such a significant and historic venue.


There are two hotels conveniently located within walking distance of the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL): Mama Shelter and Novotel Kirchberg.

Mama Shelter is a modern and stylish hotel with comfortable rooms and a lively atmosphere. Novotel Kirchberg offers spacious rooms and a range of amenities, including an on-site restaurant and fitness center.

Both hotels are located just a 2 minutes walk from the ECCL, making them ideal options for conference attendees who wish to stay close to the event venue.


MamaShelter is a new hotel that opened in July 2020, offering 145 modern and stylish rooms designed by the acclaimed Design Studio Mama. Each room is uniquely decorated to provide a cozy and inviting atmosphere, making your stay in Luxembourg a comfortable one.
