Kirchberg, Luxembourg city!

Well let me get out of my belle France for a while. This is one of my favorite countries and have the luck of visited several times with the family. I  ,of course, have several posts on it for the city and the country of Luxembourg. However, looking thru my vault cameup with some nostalgic photos of wonderful family trips needed to have in my blog.

Therefore, this was our experience in Kirchberg, Luxembourg city! Another one of our favorites ,the Kirchberg district, not just because for me there is many European institutions there but with the family we enjoy the wonderful Auchan shopping center and the cinema Utopolis.

Kirchberg is one of the 24 districts of Luxembourg city. Made up of a plateau located in the northeast part of the city, it is today the heart of the international banking and financial center that the country constitutes. It is linked to the city center by the Grande-Duchesse Charlotte bridge aka the pont rouge or red bridge because of the color of the anti-rust that has covered the bridge since its construction which spans the valley of the Alzette river.

In the 1960s, the Kirchberg plateau first hosted the buildings of the European institutions located in Luxembourg: Court of Justice of the European Union, European Court of Auditors, Secretariat of the European Parliament, European Investment Bank (EIB) ), European School, Eurostat, etc. Today it has become a residential, cultural district with the Philharmonic Hall as well as the Museum of Modern Art Grand Duke Jean – aka Mudam, but also and above all institutional and business with European institutions, banks, financial institutions and insurance are numerous.

The Kirchberg is also a leisure district. Multisport halls and an Olympic swimming pool all grouped under the name of La Coque make this sports complex the largest and most important in the country. Utopolis now call Kinepolis) is a multiplex composed of 10 rooms and was the first multiplex in Europe to have equipped all of its screens with the standards of digital projection.

The Kirchberg district is located a stone’s throw from Luxembourg-Findel airport. And from the airport to the city center we have taken bus 16!! Nice ride lol! The bus line 16 is here: VDL bus tram network on bus line 16

The district is mainly served by the tramway linking Luxexpo to its opening and the Grand Duchess Charlotte bridge via avenue John F. Kennedy; the tram is linked to Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg station located on line 1 by the funicular. In addition, numerous AVL and RGTR bus lines connect the district to Ville-Haute (upper town) and neighboring villages. The tramway line here: Luxtram on tramway line 1
