Discover Nordstad
The town of Ettelbruck, secretly named “Bauerenhaptstad” (Luxembourg’s agricultural capital) is located in Nordstad, a north-central region of Luxembourg with a rich agricultural past, making it an ideal venue for addressing the LUGA themes. In particular, for over 40 years, Ettelbruck has hosted the annual Agricultural Fair where local consumers and producers come together and share ideas. Nordstad is also home to the experimental fields in Bettendorf and the Gilsdorf Technical Agricultural College, which has been a major centre for training in nature-related trades since 1883 and for research into plant varieties.
