The city centre of Luxembourg, between luxury and architecture

Combining the old town (Altstadt) and the Upper Town (Oberstadt), the centre of Luxembourg City offers a prestigious living environment in the heart of the capital of the Grand-Duchy. A shopping district rather oriented towards luxury and perfectly served by public transport. Engel & Völkers, a specialist in high-end real estate, invites you to visit the heart of Luxembourg City's elegance.

Geography and atmosphere

The small km² of Luxembourg's city centre stretches between boulevard Royal in the north and west, boulevard Franklin Roosevelt in the south and the Eich coast in the east. Perched on its rocky plateau to the west of the Alzette loop, the medieval stronghold has given way to a district with an exceptional classical architectural heritage. The habitat of the highest architectural interest is next to some vestiges of the military past of the places. Well traced streets, lined with prestigious buildings, administration and places of worship sometimes lead to an old rampart gate, a fort, a redoubt or a bastion. What constitutes one of the most beautiful European districts offers its 3500 inhabitants an exceptional living environment. A lively but always wise neighbourhood.

Finally, numerous cultural events throughout the year contribute to creating a unique atmosphere.


The heart of the capital, the centre is home to many luxury boutiques. Shoppers are always delighted to stroll through beautiful streets in search of their favourite brand. The Rue Philippe II, the Grand-Rue and the rue des Capucins in particular, are imposing themselves today as a high place of luxury on the scale of other capitals or large cities. Fortunately, the local commercial fabric is well established. Several small neighbourhood supermarkets, bakeries, butcher shops and greengrocers offer the essentials on the corner. Lively, the district proposes beautiful terraces of restaurants and cafés. The nursery and primary school on the rue de la Congrégation welcomes children from the neighbourhood. For their mobility, the inhabitants can count on 9 lines and 23 bus stops that connect them to all strategic points of the capital. 12 self-service bicycle stations make it possible to travel in this neighbourhood where the car is not the most suitable means of transport. Almost a third of the district is made up of pedestrian streets.

Real estate in the city centre of Luxembourg

If such a city centre is not accessible to all budgets, the district offers great opportunities to informed investors. The agency Engel & Völkers in Luxembourg has established itself as the reference in this prestigious and limited real estate market. A beautiful destination at the heart of Europe's dynamism.
