Aid to communes and non-profit organisations to develop the national tourism infrastructure

The Ministry of the Economy may pay capital grants to encourage investments aimed at the development of the national tourism infrastructure.

The following investments are concerned:

  • implementation of regional tourism infrastructure equipment projects;
  • the construction, fitting-out, modernisation or extension of accommodation establishments such as a guesthouse, a youth hostel, a campsite or accommodation similar to a campsite;
  • the touristic development of cultural, natural and historical heritage;
  • participation in a tourism exhibition or trade fair;
  • the refurbishment and fitting out of visitor centres and tourist information facilities;
  • the introduction of information and communication technologies in visitor centres and tourist information facilities, such as a website, an on-line reservation system, a mobile application, a WIFI network, a system for granting individual codes or the introduction of a firewall or an anti-virus system;
  • a tourism-related project or feasibility study.
  • the setting up of information and communication technology facilities by the owners or operators of accommodation facilities, such as the setting up of a website, an online booking system, a mobile application, a WIFI network, a system for granting individual codes or the setting up of a firewall or an anti-virus system.

Who is concerned

Communes, associations of communes and non-profit organisations may benefit from these aid schemes.

Any work for the purpose of fitting out, refurbishing and expanding different types of accommodation must be carried out in accordance with current standards.

Investments relating to maintenance or simple renovation works as well as to the replacement of furniture which are not within the scope of a modernisation project are not eligible.

Deadlines

Aid applications for projects exceeding EUR 50,000 excluding VAT must be submitted before the actual investments are made.

How to proceed

Filing an application

The applicant must submit a duly completed aid application using the form provided for this purpose to the General Directorate for Tourism.

The application can be submitted electronically to the email address aides.tourisme@eco.etat.lu.

If the application is submitted by post, the following address should be used:

Ministère de l’Économie

  • the form, duly completed and signed;
  • a detailed estimate of the project costs;

  • implementation plans;
  • the extract from the register of deliberations of the communal council meeting at which the project was approved (applies only to communes and associations of communes);

  • a cadastral extract (Geoportal) enabling the localisation of the place where the project is to be carried out;
  • if applicable, photos showing the project's implementation.

Amount of aid

The amount of aid may not exceed 50 % of eligible investments in the case of:

  • implementation of regional tourism infrastructure equipment projects;
  • the construction, fitting-out, modernisation or extension of an accommodation establishment other than a campsite;
  • the touristic development of cultural, natural and historical heritage;
  • participation in a tourism exhibition or trade fair;

  • the installation of information and communication technology facilities in accommodation structures, including campsites.

Exceptionally, and on the basis of a reasoned proposal from the Minister responsible for Tourism, the Government may grant special financial support in addition to the aid usually granted, in the event that :

  • the targeted investments are necessary and that the financial means of the communes, associations of communes and non-profit associations are insufficient;
  • the projects in question are of national interest.

Payment

The aid will be paid after completion of the investment project upon presentation of a final account accompanied by receipted bills.

Repayment

Beneficiaries of the aid lose all or part of the aid in the event the subsidised movable and immovable fixed assets are no longer used for the business purpose they were intended for at the time the financial aid was granted.

The beneficiaries must reimburse:

  • the full amount of aid granted if the change in business purpose occurs before a 5-year deadline from the moment the aid was granted;
  • half of the aid, minus 10 % each year after 5 years of business operation.
