Esch-sur-Alzette

Description

Cosmopolitan city with a lively past, Esch-sur-Alzette is well-known for its architectural charms (the architects Violet le Duc, Joseph Stübben, Gottfried Böhm and Peter Rice have worked here) and its large shopping facilities. The second largest town of the country lies at 17 km from the capital city and at 25 km from the airport.

A choice of cultural attractions awaits the visitors: the National Museum of the Resistance, the metallurgical factories, Berwart tower, monuments, architectural walk in the city centre, Belvédère, parks (Stübben), St. Joseph's church, grotto of O.L. of Lourdes, city hall, local theatre with programs meeting everyone's taste, art galleries, libraries, music conservatory and numerous events well-known far beyond the border. Its history and that of the adjacent areas can be traced back to more than 5.000 years.

Its actual importance is due to the surrounding iron ore.

The recreation centre at Galgenberg offers a beautiful park, marked walking paths, rose-garden, waterfall and fountains, playgrounds, animal park and several sports facilities.

Numerous entertainment possibilites: popular festivities, discos, dancings, hotels, renowned restaurants and bars.

A city map with the walking paths is on sale at the Esch City Tourist Office.

Exhibitions and activities in the Esch-Belval University Campus.
