"Church of the People"

This neo-roman church, founded in 1856, has not been without its share of difficulties. The Prussians, having been in control of all things at the time of its construction, did not approve of the original plans and therefore the church towers are much shorter than initially envisioned. The church appears relatively plain at first sight, but closer inspections reveal the intricate stonework and rich carvings that adorn its portals, vivid sculptures of saintly figures, and vibrant stained glass windows that illuminate a cavernous interior filled with the melodious song of a monumental organ and pious whispers. Inaugurated on August 2, 1869, on the day of the feast Saint Alphonse, the church has remained a central place of worship for Luxembourgers ever since. In 2013, the International English-Speaking Community of the Parish of Luxembourg Notre Dame moved into the historic church, hosting weekly religious services that attract a diverse congregation.
