Limpertsberg, a popular residential area

The Limpertsberg district is densely populated, yet quiet, and is mainly inhabited by families with children. It is very popular with expatriates of European origin because of its easy access to the city center, the proximity of the Kirchberg business district and the numerous amenities.

Amenities on the Limpertsberg

The Limpertsberg is a mixed neighborhood with a high residential character. With its local shops, bars and restaurants, schools, green spaces and 30km/h streets, it offers many advantages for its inhabitants. Many service companies and professionals have also settled there.


Several primary and secondary schools are located on the Limpertsberg. The Lycée Français Vauban, a private international school, previously located in Limpertsberg moved in 2018 to Luxembourg Gasperich.

However, in order to reduce traffic in the neighborhood, more than 5,000 school, high school, and college students must move out of the neighborhood by 2025. The goal is to make Limpertsberg a car-free district

The Lycée Michel Lucius and its basic school will move to the site “op der Schleed” in the Kirchberg district. The Waldorfschoul would also move to the Kirchberg.

For the time being, the Lycée Technique du Centre has added new extensions, with a sports hall and a new dining hall designed in an eco-responsible spirit. These facilities will remain operational after the planned move to the new “Midfield” district in Howald, near the Lycée Vauban.

The land vacated by the various schools would be reused for the construction of new housing. This could respond, at least in part, to the high demand for real estate in Luxembourg.

Transportation / Bus

The district is very well served by transport . The district is the subject of a project led by the City of Luxembourg “Living without cars”.

Bus routes 4, 12, 19, 30, CN1, CN2, CN4 serve the neighborhood with 41 bus stops. The Aerobus and many other lines leave from the Pescatore stop, which borders the Glacis parking lot.

The City Shopping Bus makes it easier to shop downtown from the Glacis parking lot.

The tramway serves the Champ du Glacis towards Luxexpo and the central station.

Several Veloh! stations are available to residents.

The Place du Glacis is a large open-air public parking lot and offers ample parking with the Schuman parking lot.

Relaxation and leisure

The neighborhood has many green spaces. With the Tony Neuman Park, the Georges Willmar Park and the nearby Kinnekswiss, families have plenty of space to relax .

The playground Klammen a Sprangen in Rue de l’Avenir offers ropes, zip lines and nets for climbers between 0 and 12 years. The playground also offers sandboxes and swings for the less adventurous.

In addition, the Limpertsberg offers many cafes and restaurants.

Limpertsberg also hosts the famous Schueberfoueron the parking lot of the Glacis in August and September, to the delight of all. The Luxembourg Art Week also takes place in the district.

There are also gyms, bocce courts and various sports facilities.

The district is also characterized by a strong cultural wealth. It includes not only the Grand Theatre, but also the Utopia cinema. These two establishments offer a program that is as specialized as it is varied.

The Halle Victor Hugo regularly hosts many events and participates in the animation of the neighborhood.

The famous Glacismaart takes place every 3rd Sunday of the month on the Parking du Glacis, except during the Schueberfouer period.

Living in Limperstberg, our opinion

On an area of 2 km2, the Limpertsberg welcomes families in a chic and classic family atmosphere. With its very beautiful Antique houses, it offers a pleasant setting for families, close to everything. Very sunny, the Limpertsberg is located on a plateau.

We recommend Limperstberg if you want to stay close to the center and have easy access on foot or by bike.

We particularly like:

  • the peace and quiet of this chic residential area
  • to go for pleasant walks with the family. See the pedestrian circuits like the one of the roses or Vauban.

A project for the construction of a footbridge for pedestrians and bicycles is being studied on the initiative of the Limpertsberg Syndicate (“Lampertsbierger Syndicat”). This 350-meter long footbridge over the Villeroy & Boch industrial site would connect the Limpertsberg and the Bambësch.

The Limpertsberg district is the most expensive district in the Luxembourg capital, just ahead of its counterpart, the Belair district.
