Rumelange: A Goldmine of Treasures to Discover

A long-lasting industrial tradition

Rumelange sold its first iron ore in 1863. And it has also distinguished itself in another sector, since it was here that Luxembourg's first cement factory was created in 1894. Today, the company has become Cimalux and produces 1,450,000 tonnes of cement each year, while Cogifer Kihn, founded in 1893, is known worldwide for its production of railroad switches.

Mobility: All roads lead to Rumelange

Rumelange is only 5.1 km from the A13 motorway and boasts a railway station. It is the terminus of the 6C line, which comes from Noertzange in 9 minutes. From here, you can reach Luxembourg City in 17 minutes. It therefore takes less than half an hour by train to reach the capital without increasing the carbon footprint.

To get around the area:

  • Communal bus (Esch - Rumelange - Dudelange)

  • RGTR national network (Luxembourg - Rumelange - Ottange)

  • Flexibus to be reserved for journeys within the town or in the neighbouring municipality of Kayl-Tétange

  • 3 Vël'OK stations: bicycles (electric or not) available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, in 50 stations spread over 6 municipalities in the south of the country.


To relax at the weekend and explore the industrial and natural heritage of the municipality, two walking trails of 9.5 and 10 km have been set up.
