The centre of Niederanven


The cen­tre of Nieder­an­ven did change con­sid­er­ably over the years. Most of the old build­ings did loose their ini­tial affec­ta­tion and had been ren­o­vat­ed and recon­struct­ed to pri­vate means, so that their first des­ti­na­tion is no longer iden­ti­fi­able. Some of the hous­es had to get demol­ished in order to enlarge the roads. The streets did how­ev­er change less in their network.

F20In the 18th cen­tu­ry, Nieder­an­ven gained a spe­cial tourist promi­nence. The phar­ma­cist Rademach­er ran a sort of ther­a­peu­tic bath in a build­ing near the bridge to Ober­an­ven. The land own­er was a cer­tain Mr Sev­erin Bous from Lux­em­bourg City, keep­ing the house as a week-end house. In 1750 Rademach­er rent­ed the house in order to wel­come the spa guests, will­ing to use the med­i­c­i­nal bath. They were also allowed to pray in the annexed chapel.

G20The con­stant grow­ing of the traf­fic and the linked dif­fi­cul­ties, asked for the con­struc­tion of a gen­darmerie sta­tion on the “route de Trèves” (num­ber 213 today) dur­ing the Dutch occu­pa­tion. After the open­ing of the rail­way line Lux­em­bourg-Treves, the road “route de Trèves” lost of its impor­tance and the sta­tion had been relo­cat­ed to Rood-Syr in 1861.
