Merging of municipalities

On 1st January 2018, the date of entry into force of the three latest laws on merging, the number of Luxembourg municipalities changed from 105 to 102.

In fact, the law of 16 June 2017 on the merging of communes has been published in the Official Journal of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg: 

  • The municipalities of Mompach and Rosport have merged into a new municipality known as "Rosport-Mompach".

Furthermore, two laws of 15 April 2016 on the merging of municipalities have been published in the Official Journal:

  • The municipalities of Hobscheid and Septfontaines have merged into a new municipality known as "Habscht".
  • The municipalities of Boevange-sur-Attert and Tuntange have merged into a new municipality known as "Helperknapp".

In addition, the law of 19 December 2014 on the merging of municipalities has been published in the Official Journal:

  • The municipalities of Eschweiler and Wiltz merged in order to become the new municipality of "Wiltz".

Furthermore, six laws of 24 May 2011 on the merging of municipalities have been published in the Official Journal:

  • the municipalities of Esch-sur-Sûre, Heiderscheid and Neunhausen have merged in order to become the new municipality of "Esch-sur-Sûre",
  • while the municipalities of Ermsdorf and Medernach have merged in order to become the municipality of the "Vallée de l’Ernz",
  • Burmerange, Schengen and Wellenstein have become the new municipality of "Schengen",

  • Bascharage and Clemency are now known as "Käerjeng", and
  • the municipalities of Clervaux, Heinerscheid and Munshausen have become the new municipality of "Clervaux".

Graphs offering comparisons (in particular, but without being exhaustive, districts, parties, homepages, etc.) are based on the unofficial results provided on this website during the elections. For comparison purposes, we have thus added up the number of votes of the municipalities before they merged.
