Sandweiler, a small community with many amenities

The Sandweiler appears to be a pretty rural village with all the amenities. It is located 5 km from the capital, close to the districts of Hamm and Pulvermuhl (formerly part of Sandweiler) and the district of Cents.

Despite its small size, Sandweiler offers many amenities. In particular, there is a Smatchconvenience store, a fishmonger, a real estate agency, two bakeries, an optician, two hairdressers, a beauty salon, several restaurants and bars, several medical offices, a pharmacy, a gas station, banks, … and even a florist, a rather rare store in Luxembourg!

A small commercial area at the entrance of the village gathers stores for home improvement, clothing stores, a toy store, a butcher shop and a supermarket.

Sandweiler is also known for hosting the SNCT, a compulsory passage for the technical control and the registration of your vehicle in Luxembourg.

A bi-monthly market takes place in the main square of the village every other Thursday.

Sandweiler also has a local school.

Surrounded by greenery, it is easy to enjoy jogging and family walks in the nearby forests.

The village of Sandweiler is dominated byLuxembourg-Findel airport, the only international airport in Luxembourg and the fifth largest cargo airport in Europe.

Sandweiler also has a rich history as it is home to an American war cemetery that can easily be visited to learn about contemporary history.

The older Catholic church in Sandweiler was built in the 18th century. But it seems that the parish of Sandweiler already existed at the time when Sigefroi acquired the fort of Lucilinburhuc.

Sandweiler, a very attractive commune

Interesting infrastructures such as the “Youth House”, which is open to all young people between 12 and 26 years of age, contribute to making the community socially dynamic and attractive for families.
