History

The Grund is one of Luxembourg City's oldest neighbourhoods. As far back as the 14th century, there is mention of a hospice operating in this area. It was located in the building that now houses the National Museum of Natural History. This predecessor of the city's modern-day hospices cared for the elderly, the infirm, and orphans.

After the abbey on the Altmünster Plateau was destroyed in 1543, Neumünster Abbey was built in the Grund. For centuries, its buildings were used as a prison, but today they are the site of the Neumünster cultural and community centre.
