During the month of April and until May, the station district will host the festival “Design in the city", and offer many thematic activities!
The station district is certainly the liveliest district of Luxembourg City. 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.
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.
For one month, the Design in the city festival will animate the station district as well as the entrance of the area of Bonnevoie in order to promote social cohesion and to inform on the presence of design in the Luxembourgian public spaces. More info.
