Bourbon Plateau

Bourbon Plateau

Bourbon Plateau

Its name refers to the former Fort Bourbon and it had been included in the fortification of the city for ages.

A lot of defence works of the middle and exterior rings of the so-called Diedenhofener Front (for instance Fort Bourbon, Fort Elisabeth, Avancée Thionville, Fort Wallis, Fort Wedell) were located on this plateau.

After the fortress was dismantled (from 1867 onwards), the principles of town planning needed applying here.
