The station district is certainly the liveliest district of the Capital of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. Due to its proximity to the train station and shops, it is strategic for the people with no car. In some streets, some charming apartments, in the Haussmannian style, date from the 19th century. However, with the station of the capital as a center of gravity, the station district drains a very heterogeneous population causing sometimes local tensions. Moreover, the problems of prostitution, drugs and petty crime remain a handicap.
The district is divided into three distinct areas. The Pétrusse sector is dotted with houses from the 19th century. Some embassies or Embassy residences have elected residence there. The Avenue de la Liberté and the Bourbon Plateau sector consist of residential buildings, including the former seat of the Arcelor Mittal group. Finally, the nearest sector of the station hosts shops and some administrations.
The station district has a basic Luxembourgian school, on rue du Commerce. There is no nursery in this area. Many buses serve the station district, including the buses. There is a Cactus near the station and a Monoprix in Fort Bourbon Street.
