All the street names in this zone have their origin in old location names, giving interesting information about the former landscape and its use.
The “rue du Scheid” is the old term for the crest, separating the locality of Hostert and Rameldange. At the same time it forms the separating line of the water going to the basin of the Hostert brook on one side and to the basin of the “Boueschbach” on the other.
The site where the residential estate is today, had once been covered by orchards. Both street names “Hannert de Kleppbeem” and “Äppeltaart” remind us of its old use as an orchard.
“Hannert de Kleppbeem” means: “ behind the trees that can be beaten”. In fact the branches of the apple or plum trees were shaken or beaten to harvest the fruits.
The name “Äppeltaart” simply means apple pie and recalls the use of the fruits reaped at this location.
