Dudelange Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 15 photos

We only stayed a short time in Dudelange. Far too short to learn anything of its history, the mines, and what things to see.<BR>What we saw, was a small village, a nice city-centre and a majestic church -> <FONT COLOR="DARKRED"> parish-church, neo-gotic with rich fresco's made by a monc named Notker Becker and a famous Stations of the Cross, made by the painter D. Lang, one of the most famous painters of the nation.
Too bad we did not take more time to have a proper look around!<BR>What I read was the following: 17.400 habitants. This 'blacksmith' of the south is situated at the bottom of the mount St. Jean. The steel factory and the "hoogovens' are replaced by a "koude pletmolen".
Nice shopping centre, lots of parkingspace and flowery open spaces.
Cityhall and city-museum (Rue Dominic Lang 25, archeologie, paleontology, history of steel and iron-industry, foto-galery); cityparc "le'h"; national parc "Haardt".
There are silent charming places in this land of work between the red rocks.
At mt. Jean you can find restored ruïnes of the old castle (no admittance-costs) and a touristic tower from which panoramic views.
