Highly populated yet still calm, Limpertsberg inhabitants are mainly Luxembourgish families with children or European expats due to the proximity with the large, calm and relatively recent business district Kirchberg.
Limpertsberg stands out from the other neighbourhoods of the City thanks to the many beautiful old houses, green, open spaces and its geographical, sunny location.
This residential area is also very rich culturally, with the Grand Theatre and also Utopia cinema. These two establishments offer a varied and sophisticated programme.

Our Opinion about Limpertsberg
We recommend Limpertsberg if you are looking for peace and calm in a stylish residential area, going on lovely family walks. Check out the walking trails like the Roses or Vauban. For more information on walking tours in the City.
Downside: given the large number of schools in Limpertsberg many inhabitants are bothered by the large number of buses, in particular school buses, going through the area. There is a governmental plan to change this situation by 2025.
A project to build a footbridge for pedestrians and bicycles is being studied at the initiative of the Limpertsberg district Syndicate (“Lampertsbierger Syndicat”). This 350-metre long footbridge over the Villeroy & Boch industrial site would connect Limpertsberg and Bambësch.
