Living with the lively Gare district

Although it is the smallest district in Luxembourg City, it is nevertheless the most populated of the capital. Its fame as well as its population density give it a certain animation. Indeed, it abounds in department stores, shops, bars and restaurants. But it is also the place of ancient architectural jewels like in “Avenue de la Liberté” which does not hide its Haussmannian likeness. Engel & Völkers is an expert in the high-end real estate market, taking you to a district that has many surprises in store for its inhabitants.

At the heart of the public transport system

As its name suggests, this district is built around the railway station of the capital of the Grand Duchy. Built in 1907, the latter accommodates many regional trains while being connected to the high-speed network to Paris. Its 105 hectares located right in the centre of the capital next to the Upper Town benefit from excellent public transport connections. The district also has 30 bus stations served by 13 lines and 9 self-service bicycle stations. At the heart of the public transport system, the station district is ideal for all those who wish to live without a car.

A lively shopping district

The Gare district is the place of Luxembourgish commerce. There are plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars. An appreciable diversity which generates an important animation. Gare is not the quietest neighbourhood of Luxembourg City but a warm atmosphere always reigns. This lively neighbourhood is particularly suitable for young people who are looking for entertainment day and night. The main streets drain  many customers and travellers to the surrounding shops. Travellers arriving or departing from the station are more than 80,000 every day.

Urban physiognomy

The streets of the Gare district are lined with numerous Haussmann-style buildings dating from the 19th century. On the Boulevard de la Pétrusse side, the Gare district offers properties as coveted and upscale as in Belair and Limpertsberg. Notably in the streets Micher Welter (Art-Déco), Adolphe Fischer and Goethe Street for example. The Pétrusse sector offers many individual houses from the same period. Avenue de la Liberté for instance, offers magnificent architectural constructions, while the Plateau Bourbon sector boasts beautiful Art Nouveau and Art Deco residential buildings. A first-class architectural heritage that arouses the interest of people who have a real estate project in Luxembourg City.

With a strategic location in the heart of the city and a very dense commercial network, the Gare district is a prime destination for young working people who want to easily reach their offices by public transport. A relatively affordable neighbourhood in which you can consider buying or renting a spacious apartment in a beautiful building. Now located in the heart of this district, Engel & Völkers appears to be the ideal partner to guide its customers in this place which abounds in superb properties. An expert and step-by-step guide to help you put your furniture down quickly in the heart of the capital of the Grand Duchy!
