Hollerich Village Eco-Responsible Project

A large-scale ecological project, “Hollerich Village”, combining a craft and commercial zone, should be created in the next few years.

This plan could thus give a heart of life to this district. This development project along the railroad is part of the larger “Hollerich Gate” project.

The transformation of the slaughterhouse, Schluechthaus

Nearby, and currently used for various purposes, the slaughterhouse site must be transformed. The Schluechthaus currently houses the Sports Department of the City of Luxembourg, which is due to move.

The site also offers an indoor skateboard, roller and BMX park located on Rue de l’Abattoir, a section of the Red Cross, and scouting activities.

The City of Luxembourg recently launched a call to citizens to share their desires and suggestions for transforming and upgrading this 2.5 hectare site with green spaces, close to all amenities.

Several ideas have emerged, among them the idea of preserving the old structures and classifying them as historical monuments. The objective of the reconversion project is to give a place to leisure activities, shops and cultural activities.
