Images of July 2021 flooding across the grand duchy



No injuries were reported, but this year’s floods caused extensive damage. These images capture part of the story.

Photographs--from Born and Echternach, in eastern Luxembourg; northern districts of Luxembourg City; and Hesperange, south of the capital--document some of the disaster.

Among other areas impacted, the Alzette burst its banks and flooded Luxembourg City’s Grund district.

Damage is estimated to be at least €50m.
