Ten minutes by car: that's all it takes from Luxembourg City to reach this charming town of 2,710 inhabitants. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, it has a dizzying demographic curve. So, what is the secret of its attractiveness? This green cocoon is not lacking in appeal, and Leudelange boasts many assets to seduce a young couple buying a property. Shall we take you there?
* Less than 1/2-hour drive from Longwy
* Half an hour by bike from the capital, 7.5 km
Whether you come from the east, south, west or north, you will inevitably drive through forests, and then agricultural plots, that give the village its relaxing country character. But beware: here, nature is more than just a background to be contemplated. Through the demanding framework of the Climate Pact, it is cherished and respected. The farmers of the van Dyck-Goergen educational farm will not deny this: their products are sold directly from biodynamic agriculture.
* Media library
* Cultural Centre/Performance Hall
* Swimming pool at 10 minutes’ drive
* Pre-school and primary schools
* 4 crèches
Even though its population has doubled in three decades, the municipality has managed to preserve a rural atmosphere. This is certainly due to the size of the area and the fact that the population density is much lower than the national average.
In addition, it has equipped itself with services that make daily life easier and is investing in its youth: a new school complex is being built.
The industrial zone is at a good distance from the residential areas, which are largely provided with green spaces and numerous playgrounds.
The countryside is nice, but if you must drive for miles to fill your fridge...
No stress! The City Concorde shopping centre in Bertrange (hypermarket, shopping mall and restaurants) is 6 kilometres away. The Cactus supermarket and a large DIY store stand less than 10 minutes away by car.
Not forgetting the local nugget nicknamed the “Luxembourg Rungis”: at the wholesaler La Provençale, supplier of the ducal family, you can find the best products of the country.
* Entry fee of €50 valid for life
* Open 5 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays, 5 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturdays

When you live in Leudelange, it is of course easy to enjoy the activities of the capital. But you can also have fun without leaving this relaxing environment.
For example, the An der Schwemm swimming centre in Bettembourg offers swimming lessons, a wellness area, aquafitness sessions and baby swimming.
Even closer, the Kockelscheuer ice rink organizes afterwork evenings with a DJ on Friday nights.
From 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., working parents can count on the “maison-relais” to look after their children before and after school. The meals served in the school cafeteria are prepared by a chef trained in the best restaurants. His credo: healthy food prepared with regional products.
Note that the crèche Les P'tits Bouchons is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Rockids nursery applies Montessori teaching methods.
