Luxembourg, a country on a human scale ideally placed in the heart of Europe, attracts new residents every year. Whether they are Luxembourgers who would not leave their native country for anything in the world or Europeans looking for new opportunities, Luxembourg's municipalities are appealing.

In this article, we present the five most sought-after municipalities in the Grand Duchy, to help you identify the one that best suits your own ideal of life. Whatever your desires, you will certainly find the right choice!

Luxembourg City, the economic, commercial, and cultural centre

Do you dream of living in the fast lane in Luxembourg? Do you like the excitement of big cities, the diversity of cultural offerings and the large shopping streets where you can stroll at any time of the day? If so, you will have every opportunity to be happy in the heart of Luxembourg City, capital of the country of the same name.

Among the most popular districts in Luxembourg City are Clausen, Grund, and Ville-Haute. These historic districts are characterized by the charm of their buildings, but also by their strategic location, close to all shops, services, and public transport.

If you are looking for a more atypical living environment in Luxembourg City, you may be interested in Pfaffenthal, an area known for its village atmosphere in the middle of the city. The modern districts are also likely to attract your attention, especially if you like the comfort of contemporary buildings. In this case, go to Kirchberg or the Cloche d'Or, two booming areas!

Bertrange, a community on a human scale with all the needed amenities

Living in Luxembourg City doesn't suit you because you're looking for a bigger, cheaper or more peaceful place to live? Don't hesitate to move a little away from the centre and look for neighbouring municipalities like Bertrange.

Here, you live less than 15 minutes from the heart of Luxembourg City, with easy access to the train station, local shops and all the necessary infrastructure. The local shopping centres, such as City Concorde, have all the stores you need for your daily life, and even entertainment. On a completely different note, the programme of the Atert cultural and sports centre is also an incentive to move to this charming town on the outskirts of Luxembourg City.

Along the road to Arlon, which passes through Bertrange, various shops for home, leisure, and clothing are open to the public. The ideal place to enjoy a rainy day and satisfy all shopping enthusiasts!

Strassen, when city meets nature in Luxembourg

Bordering Luxembourg City, Strassen is a true extension of the capital, ideally located to the west. Crossed by the road to Arlon, which is its principal axis, Strassen is perfectly served by the main roads, which facilitates travel from the municipality (towards Luxembourg City, but also towards other destinations).

If you like to relax in the green, you will certainly appreciate the presence of the Bambësch forest in the municipality of Bertrange. Four hundred hectares of greenery and change of scenery await you at the gates of the old town! Strassen is also known for its thermal baths and shopping centres, such as Belle Étoile, which straddles Bertrange.

Walferdange, living in the green with the comfort of the city

North of Luxembourg City, in the Alzette valley, a municipality of less than 10,000 inhabitants attracts many families in search of serenity and well-being. Home to the Sonnebierg nature reserve and an archaeological site with a Roman villa, Walferdange is a truly charming municipality in Luxembourg, in a quiet location, and not far from the city.

Numerous shops are accessible to residents and visitors in the Bereldange district, while the main services are located around the Rue de Luxembourg in the centre of Walferdange.

Kopstal and its pleasant, quiet daily life

Located between Walferdange and Brameschhaff, in the heart of Luxembourg, Kopstal belongs to the club of human-sized towns where life is good. Here, you will find everything you need for your daily life: pharmacy, restaurants, sports facilities (Bridel hall), etc. In addition, the richness of the community life allows you to practice many activities, from football to motocross. A quality of life appreciated by many profiles, knowing that you are less than 20 minutes from the centre of Luxembourg City by car.
