Fodor's Expert Review Grund
Once considered dank and squalid, this is one of the oldest parts of the city. Historically, it was where the capital's craftsmen once lived. Today, its houses demand enormous sums—even by Luxembourg standards. In recent years, it has become a popular going-out area. You'll find chic restaurants and exclusive clubs among the skylighted, renovated town houses and what used to be tumbledown laborers' homes. If you don't fancy the steep walk, an elevator goes to the Upper Town's Plateau du Saint-Esprit.
