Luxembourg's fourth-largest city has many upcoming projects. The border town is doing everything possible to offer its inhabitants the best infrastructure and more and more housing.

Dudelange in figures

Dudelange, located in the canton of Esch-sur-Alzette, has today more than 21,500 inhabitants. On the French border, it is adjacent to the municipalities of Bettembourg and Frisange.

The origins of the city go back more than 2000 years, when Dudelange was only a village of 250 inhabitants. It was in 1907 that it obtained the title of city and that the link with the steel industry began.

After the crisis of the steel industry and the closure of the Dudelange rolling mill in 2005, Dudelange must redouble its efforts to reconvert and offer its inhabitants an ideal living environment.

The city's projects

The biggest project in Dudelange is undoubtedly that of the “NeiSchmelz”, the future eco-neighborhood that will be located between the Italy and the Schmelz neighborhood. It was following the closure of the Arcelor Mittal rolling mill in 2005 that this project was born. In collaboration with the Fonds du Logement, the municipality will build a multitude of CO2-neutral housing on 36 hectares, but not only that. Indeed, the “NeiSchmelz” will bring together shops, offices, leisure and gastronomy. However, it will take a little more than a decade for the eco-neighborhood to be fully completed.

Many other projects are underway in Dudelange. Among the most important, we find the construction of a multipurpose hall on the route de Bettembourg. This complex, thought to be assembled, disassembled and moved according to the needs, will welcome the events of the clubs and associations of the city.

The city's public spaces are also being developed. The latest works started this spring, and it is the Place Kinnen which is getting a new look, for the pleasure of the people of Dudelange.

Finally, children are also a priority in Dudelange. The “Lenkeschléi” school complex was inaugurated at the beginning of the year and a nursery is currently under construction.
