Sandweiler is a commune and town in southern Luxembourg. It is located 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east of Luxembourg City. As of 2005, the town of Sandweiler, which lies in the south-west of the commune, has a population of 3,450. Other settlements within the commune include Findel. The commune is dominated by Luxembourg Airport, Luxembourg's only international airport and the fifth-busiest cargo airport in Europe, which lies to the north and west of the town of Sandweiler. It is also home to the Sandweiler German war cemetery. The commune is surrounded by forests. Traffic is a big problem for the commune, since it is on a main road with Germany, and many commuters cause traffic jams in the morning. The traffic problems have been made worse by the provision of bus lanes, which have reduced the available space for automobiles.
