Eich, a neighborhood with a changing village atmosphere
The Eich neighbourhood, which is mainly a foreign community, has a village or small town feel with some very pretty streets. However, there is a lot of traffic on the main roads. the architectural style presents detached houses from the beginning of the century alongside new buildings. Neighborhood in mutation, old individual dwellings gradually give place to new constructions.
The Alzette River is the natural boundary with Dommeldange and Weimerskirch is to the east and Limpertsberg to the south. On the west is Kirchberg.

Eich is on a slope, the base of the valley is ARBED land (the old Dommeldange steelworks) and the top part ends at the Montée Pilate. So some of the housing here has a great view.
Eich, heavy traffic, but close to Kirchberg
Despite the main axes being very busy, Eich benefits from its proximity to the business district Kirchberg. The ARBED land means there is a lot of possibility for development in the area.
