Rollingergrund/Belair Nord, a young and dynamic district

The Rollingergrund is a rather “young” district and attracts a cosmopolitan population. Located in the hollow of the valley, the layout of this district is organized along the main street, Rue de Rollingegrund. The neighborhood has no real center. On the other hand, its proximity to amenities is its main asset.

The origins of the Rollingergrund district date back to 1223. Its development followed that of the Boch earthenware factory, which had been based here since the 18th century. Villeroy & Boch tableware from Luxembourg is well known among lovers of fine tableware.

The neighborhood features many single-family homes. The oldest buildings date back to the 18th century, but like many other Luxembourg neighborhoods, the district was mostly developed in the 1950s. There are also many newer buildings.

Today, the Rollingergrund is mainly a residential area. The areas around the school and the church are the most lively. It’s also home to the CHL (Luxembourg Municipal Hospital) and the Kannerklinik, a children’s clinic and emergency unit.

Several real estate projects are set to revitalize the area. The transformation of the Place de l’Etoile and the creation of a new district around the Château de Septfontaines will give the Rollingergrund a livelier feel, with additional shops and services.
