Districts of Luxembourg

The three districts of Luxembourg (French: districts, German: Distrikte, Luxembourgish: Distrikter) are the top-level administrative divisions of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The districts are further subdivided into cantons:

Districts of Luxembourg
  1. Diekirch District
  2. Grevenmacher District
  3. Luxembourg District

The cantons were created on 24 February 1843.[1] In 1857, Mersch District was created from the cantons of Mersch and Redange.[2] However, this fourth district was abolished in 1867, when the re-arrangements of ten years previously were undone.[3]
