The Neudorf/Weimershof neighborhood, nestled at the northeast border of Luxembourg's capital, shares its southern boundary with Cents, western confines with Clausen, and northwest adjacency with Kirchberg. Comprising the villages of Neudorf and Weimershof, the former meanders along the Neudorf Street, while the latter rests atop the Kirchberg plateau.

General characteristics of Neudorf-Weimershof

Neudorf, though tranquil, serves primarily as a thoroughfare connecting Clausen and the Findel airport sector. Its elongated layout within a steep valley limits opportunities for a bustling local life, making it a passageway frequented mainly by residents. Meanwhile, Weimershof boasts spacious, contemporary residences in the south and a thriving commercial and financial zone to the north, housing numerous businesses.

Population of the neighborhood

Notably, with a significant 76.04% foreign-born residents, it ranks as the second most ethnically diverse neighborhood, following only the Gare district. Comparatively, the city's average foreign-born population hovers at 70.82%, underscoring Neudorf/Weimershof's distinct demographic landscape.

Transport accessibility

Nestled in a privileged position, Neudorf/Weimershof is a neighborhood that prides itself on exceptional transport accessibility, offering residents a range of convenient options for daily commuting. Its strategic location provides direct access to the Kirchberg district and a well-connected tramline that traverses the area longitudinally along Avenue John F. Kennedy. Let's explore the various modes of transportation available in this dynamic neighborhood:

By car
Driving from Neudorf/Weimershof to the city center takes approximately 10 minutes, and reaching the Gare district requires about 20 minutes. Notably, the proximity to Kirchberg allows residents to reach virtually any destination within the district in a mere 5 to 10 minutes.
By tram
The tram network efficiently serves the neighborhood, running along the northern border of Avenue John F. Kennedy. Commuters can access the city center in 15 to 20 minutes and the Gare district in 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the starting point.
By bus
Bus travel to and from the neighborhood is facilitated by multiple lines, including 7, 9, 12, 25, 26, CN1, and CN4. Additionally, there are a couple of stops for line 21 in the northern part of the neighborhood, enhancing connectivity.
By bicycle
Cycling has emerged as one of the most effective means of transportation within the neighborhood. Journeys to the city center can be as short as 10 minutes from the southernmost part of the neighborhood but may extend to 20 minutes from the northernmost areas. The presence of four Veloh self-service stations within the neighborhood and five more along Avenue John F. Kennedy, technically in Kirchberg but easily accessible from Weimershof, further promotes bike-friendly mobility
By walking
While walking within Neudorf/Weimershof may not be the most practical option, with journeys to the city center taking an average of 30 minutes from the south and potentially extending to an hour from the north, walking to the neighboring Kirchberg can be more feasible. Depending on the starting and ending points, these walks can vary from around 15 minutes to 30 minutes.
By train
Although lacking its train stations, the nearby Neudorf/Weimershof-Kirchberg station in the neighboring district significantly enhances mobility for residents requiring transportation beyond the capital.

Exciting developments are on the horizon, with a grand project envisioning a suspended footbridge across the valley, connecting the Kirchberg plateau to the Cents neighborhood. Stretching 200 meters, this remarkable bridge, starting from Rue des Bleuets in Weimershof, will swiftly link pedestrians and cyclists to the opposite side of the city. An elevator will seamlessly connect the bridge to the Neudorf neighborhood. Anticipated for completion by 2025, this architectural marvel promises to enhance connectivity, accessibility, and the overall infrastructure of Neudorf/Weimershof.

Historical overview

Founded in the late 18th century, Neudorf emerged as displaced residents sought refuge from fortress construction, initially comprising a few houses along a bustling eastward route. In 1845, the first school was established, and by 1901, an iconic church adorned the landscape. A pivotal moment in the neighborhood's economic evolution occurred with the establishment of Funck-Schamburger Brewery in 1864. Operating until 1982, the Henri Funck Brewery played a central role until its decline and eventual demolition in 2012, leaving behind a historical legacy integral to Neudorf's narrative.
