Gasperich, part of the former municipality of Hollerich, became a part of Luxembourg City when the surrounding municipalities merged with the capital in 1920. During the Middle Ages, Gasperich was made up of a single farm. By 1806, the number of residents had increased to 98.

In 1869, a brickyard was established in Gasperich. This site was then purchased in 1921 by a tar plant, which operated from 1925 to 1983. The first school was built in 1904, and the church was consecrated in 1933. The construction of affordable housing led the population to rapidly increase.
