The Grund, a harmonious historical site where to go out in Luxembourg

The Grund today is a charming place, which beautifully combines its architectural heritage, culture, and places to go out. Historically the most populated area of the city in the XII century, of which the most well known building is the Abbaye de Neumunster.

The Grund is an attractive area as it is so charming, close to the City centre and a very trendy place to go out at night.

However, housing is limited in this area as is access by car. On nice days the high number of tourists can hinder traffic and make it rather noisy and less secure for the inhabitants.
