Some buildings, like the Abbaye de Neumunster, are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Cobbled streets dating from the 10th century (such as the « Bisserwee »), walls and buildings from the 14th century characterise this very nice and charming neighbourhood.

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.
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.
