After Luxembourg City was besieged by the French in 1543, parts of Ville Haute and Clausen lay in ruins. The total destruction of these areas, however, enabled their reconstruction for entirely new purposes. Count von Mansfeld, the governor of Luxembourg City, purchased lands in Clausen, Fetschenhof and Weimershof. In 1564, he began with the construction of his new residence, "La Fontaine", in the valley outside the city's walls. A large, imposing building was built at the entrance to his estate. At the time, it included a brewery. Today, it houses the "Brasserie Mansfeld" restaurant.
