Merl, a very green residential area in Luxembourg

Merl is a residential area, which still has some fields that are mainly farmland to the west of the neighbourhood.

The Park Merl is also a wonderful open green space, and this district is the border between Luxembourg City and Bertrange.

There is still building land available, in particular on the site of the old Luxlait factory, Merl still has development potential such as « Les Jardins du Luxembourg »

Located between the chic neighbourhood of Belair and the dynamic Hollerich, Merl is one of the most populated neighbourhoods of Luxembourg-City.
