Like many other districts before, Merl was originally a rural village, which then joined neighbouring Hollerich in 1815, only to become part of Luxembourg City during its 1920 expansion. The inauguration of the Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg in 1985 and that of the Theatre National du Luxembourg in 1996 made Merl famous for its cultural activity.
Merl’s unique features include a green and calm aesthetic that will provide a peaceful experience to its visitors. Merl is also home to Campus Geesseknäppchen, which gathers not only several high schools, but also the Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg. Check out their programme to get more info about any upcoming concerts!
With the Merl-Berlair Park just a short walking distance away, it is the perfect spot for a family day out, thanks to the giant playground and the many green areas to relax on and have a picnic.
To sum up, Merl is well worth a visit if you want to discover a centrally located district with many green areas and an extensive cultural programme!
