Hespérange, a very attractive luxembourgish commune

Located between urban and agricultural area, Hesperange is characterized by the diversity of its landscapes, residential and business or commercial areas like the zone of Howald.

Hesperange is experiencing an important development in terms of business activities and growing population.

The new area of activities called “Op de Leemen” in Fentange and the expansion of the industrial zone of Alzingen, along the N3, will probably offer a new commercial dynamic to the municipality.

Many school infrastructures in the municipality of Hespérange


The increase in the number of families with children has prompted the administration to create new school infrastructures (new school of Alzingen) or to expand and adapt existing ones.

It should be noted that the municipality of Hesperange offers schools with canteen and childcare (Itzig and soon Fentange), which allows children to stay longer at school.

In Luxembourg, often at lunchtime, children get out of school and are taken over by transition houses which serve the meals. The transition houses have however limited places and it is often difficult to obtain a place. That is why the initiative of the municipality of Hesperange is welcome as an attractive alternative.

Leisure activities in the town of Hespérange

Concerning sports and leisures, in addition to the numerous sports facilities (football and basketball fields, sports hall and beach volley, petanque, cyclocross, skating track), Hesperange has a music school with currently 435 pupils. 31 ranges of different musical training courses, group and private lessons are offered there.

Many walking trails are also to discover around the municipality with a detailed description of the routes on the website of the commune.


Regarding transportation, several buses serve Hesperange to and from the City. A study to bypass Hespérange is still being investigated in order to relieve congestion in the municipality, which is saturated during peak hours. Soft mobility is encouraged with the Vel’oh system as well as with the Flexibus system, which, for 1 euro, leads you to the address of your choice.

For tourists, there is also a campsite in Alzingen. Very practical and not far from the city!
