With over 36,000 inhabitants, Esch-Alzette is the second largest city in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Today, the Minett metropolis is home to more than 120 nationalities, which gives the city a special charm. Originally known for iron ore mining, the city was left to fend for itself after the blast furnaces closed and ultimately forced to reinvent itself. Today, it is regarded as a dynamic and modern university city in the heart of a rapidly changing Europe. It aims to combine its historical heritage with visions of the future. This is reflected through the redevelopment of the city centre where services need to be adapted for the steadily growing population as well as through the project implemented to redesign the industrial wasteland in Belval and the university district. Cultural sites like the “Rockhal” concert hall and historical institutions, such as the industrial cultural heritage “Schwarze Masse”, are now particularly important institutions. Finally, the future conversion of former industrial sites such as Esch-Schifflange and Terres-Rouges will bring a breath of fresh air to the community.
