A modernist village atmosphere in Dommeldange

Luxembourg's Dommeldange district is divided into two quite distinct entities.

Historic central part of Dommeldange

Located in the Alzette valley, Dommeldange was originally part of the commune of Eich, before becoming part of the City of Luxembourg in 1920.

The Dommeldange steelworks operated until 1980. Remnants of this industry can still be found in the district. In 1609, Dommeldange was the site of the first forge inLuxembourg's ironmaking history. In its heyday, four blast furnaces operated here, producing almost 35,000 tonnes of iron ore in 1866. Remnants of this industry can still be seen near the Russian Embassy.

Château de Dommeldange was built in the 17th century by Charles Collart, owner of the Grunwald forge, as his private residence. The château still exists today, and now houses theChinese Embassy.
