The Centre neighbourhood, as the name indicates, is right at the heart of the capital. This area is mainly shops and businesses; the streets are primarily pedestrian and not easy for cars to circulate. It is one of the liveliest districts of the Luxembourg capital. It brings together the district of the old town (Altstadt) and the upper town (Oberstadt). Bordered by Royal Boulevard to the north and west, Franklin Roosevelt Boulevard to the south and Jean-Ulvelling Boulevard to the east, the center is considered the smallest district in Luxembourg. The Center district is a district essentially dedicated to services, shops and luxury.
