Rollingergrund, a young and dynamic district
As a relatively « young » neighbourhood, the Rollingergrund has a cosmopolitan population.
The development of this neighbourhood, whose origins go back to 1223, has followed the development of the Boch pottery (18th century). Given its topographical situation at the bottom of a valley, the district is based around the main road running through without as such a real centre.
Today the Rollingergrund is mainly a residential neighbourhood and the busier areas are around the church and the school. Many detached houses from the 50’s and some older houses from the 18th century.

Our Opinion about Rollingergrund
The Rollingergrund is very busy area and sometimes suffers from the busy traffic on the main road.
On the parallel street, rue Jean-François Boch, some very beautiful, modern architecture houses are springing up. Finally the amount of greenery and the proximity to the Bambësch forest make this area very popular with families.
