History

Located on the banks of the Alzette, Weimerskirch is the city's oldest neighbourhood, having developed from a Frankish estate.

As early as the 10th century, the St Martin's Church was the parish centre for the entire area on which the present-day city stands. As Luxembourg City grew, Weimerskirch increasingly lost its significance. At the end of the 18th century, it became a part of the former municipality of Eich. Weimerskirch is located along the old route to Echternach and Diekirch. Historically, its inhabitants lived off trade and agriculture.
