History

Eich, which was its own municipality from 1781 to 1920, comprised six districts: Beggen, Dommeldange, Weimerskirch, Neudorf, Eich and, until 1849, Rollingergrund. On 1 July 1920, the municipality of Eich was absorbed by Luxembourg City.

Eich still has a strong industrial heritage. In 1845, Auguste Metz commissioned the construction of Luxembourg's first blast furnace to produce pig iron and cast iron goods. The foundry was closed in 1966 and the construction workshop closed in 1975. In 1873, a hospice, orphanage and a school were founded here. These were the predecessors of the current Fondation Norbert Metz (Norbert Metz medical centre) and the Clinique d'Eich. The Institut Emile Metz, which was set up in 1915 as a training site the steel workers, is now a private technical college.
