About 50 years of the Rout Breck

The Red Bridge, officially the “Pont Grand-Duchesse Charlotte”, is a symbol of Luxembourg. The “Rout Bréck”, as it is known in Luxembourgish, crosses the Alzette valley over 73 metres and connects the Kirchberg district with the old town of Luxembourg. It was built from plans by the architect Egon Jux and was completed in 1966. Its connecting function will be enhanced further in 2017 with the construction of a tram line. Kirchberg is growing in importance as a financial and European centre and also increasingly as an internationally acclaimed cultural hotspot.
