Ambience of Bonnevoie

Bonnevoie is the most populated district of the City of Luxembourg with more than 17,000 inhabitants.

Historically, the northern part or “Verlorenkost” was a fortified place which was partly destroyed in 1807 by a powder explosion. The district developed strongly in the 20th century due to the strong increase of the population. Indded, Bonnevoie is becoming more popular due to its proximity to the railway station, the City centre and its cosmopolitan feel, especially by young couples and families. If, formerly, its reputation was not the best, Bonnevoie is now considered as a bohemian, heterogeneous and quiet residential area appreciated by families.

There, the atmosphere is above all multicultural. Thanks to its pretty colorful houses and pleasant little streets, this district adopts a decidedly British look, which gives it a pleasant living environment.

Residential and international, recognizable by its Rotondes dating from the late nineteenth century, Bonnevoie is increasingly sought after for its quality of life and its convenient location (access near the station facilitated by a footbridge) while remaining decentralized.

Benefiting from a good sports infrastructure and the presence of Football Club Racing, the district offers a wide and diversified offer.
