Luxemburger Wort is a German language Luxembourgish daily newspaper.

History and profile[edit]

Luxemburger Wort has been published since 1848.[1] The paper was founded just three days after press censorship was abolished. The newspaper is mainly written in German, but includes small sections in both Luxemburgish and French.[1] The publisher of the newspaper is Saint-Paul Luxembourg S.A. The paper is owned by the archbishopric and has a strong Catholic leaning.[2]

In the period of 1995–1996 Luxemburger Wort had a circulation of 85,000 copies, making it the best-selling paper in the country.[3] The paper had a circulation of almost 70,000 copies a day and a daily readership of more than 180,000 (print and e-paper) in 2007,[4] making it Luxembourg's most popular newspaper by both counts.[5]
