Rue Luxembourg is located in a residential area of Sillery between Boulevard Laurier and Rue Sheppard. 

Rue Luxembourg, a short street in the Sillery district of Quebec City, was named after a famous group of refugees – the Imperial family of Austria and the family of the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg – who came to Canada during the Second World War.
