Walferdange, a green and multicultural community
Located in the Valley of the Alzette, dominated by wooded heights, Walferdange is a green multicultural municipality with 51% of foreigners of about 90 different nationalities in its population. The commune of Walferdange includes the villages of Walferdange, Helmsange and Bereldange.
The commune of Walferdange is ideal for families because of its proximity to the city and its rural character which makes the city very pleasant.
Three public schools, with modern structures, are present in the territory of the commune: cycles 1, 2 and 3 at Béreldange and Helmsange, cycles 1, 2, 3, 4 at Walferdange. A school bus service is in charge of transportation for students who are living far from school. Inquire to the commune.
Two Maisons Relais in Walferdange and Béreldange offer a day care home to the children of the town.
The University Campus was established there, but here are no courses anymore since 2015. The courses are on the other three campuses: Belval (the main campus), Kirchberg for the scientists and Limpertsberg for the Masters in law.
Sports activities in the commune of Walferdange and transports
Regarding recreation and sport, Walferdange offers a great leisure opportunity (see the Pidal center, the football and tennis fields).
Among the remarkable facilities, the bicycle path of the Alzette, which is 31 km long, goes along the Valley of Alzette and connects Bereldange and Ettelbruck, which allows to combine the excursion with train rides, or even with a return by train to Luxembourg-City.
A small problem related to the geographic position of the municipality : the traffic towards the capital during peak hours, due to the unique main street providing access to the downtown.
However, the connection between the Walferdange station and the Central station of Luxembourg allows a train journey lasting approximately 10 minutes, which offers an interesting alternative to the car.
You can also benefit from the services of the Flexibus, which takes you wherever you want to go in the municipality of Walferdange. Just call it (Tél: 80022 20 20) 45 minutes before and the shuttle will pick you up and drop you off at the desired location. It will cost you 2 euros per trip or 1 euro if you have a transport ticket. A good idea to get to the nearby shopping centre.
