History

Limpertsberg owes its development to the dismantling of the Fortress of Luxembourg in 1867. The plateau, which was mainly used for agriculture (in particular rose growing), was transformed during the first part of the 20th century into an urban area.

The neighbourhood's first primary school was opened in 1906, and the church was consecrated in 1912. In 1908, the Lycée des Arts et Métiers (now the Lycée de Garçons) opened as the first public secondary school in Limpertsberg. Other secondary schools followed and made Limpertsberg the student quarter.
