History

Beggen, part of the former municipality of Eich, became a part of Luxembourg City when the surrounding municipalities merged with the capital in 1920.

Beggen started out as a small, very poor village to the north of the Fortress of Luxembourg. The census of 1611 records only 7 households there. In 1635, during the Thirty Years' War, Beggen comprised ten homes, just five of which were inhabited in 1657. The 1851 census counted 150 residents. The population of Beggen grew quickly with the onset of industrialisation and an increase in the need for labour.
