In "De Lampertsbierg", director Joy Hoffmann takes a personal look at the Limpertsberg neighborhood (Luxembourg), where he has spent his entire life. The series describes specific aspects of the neighborhood, but also reflects 150 years of history of the city of Luxembourg, and even the whole country.
From 1850 until the Second World War, the "upper" part of the Limpertsberg is the domain of religious orders and gardeners, including three world-famous rose growers. For several decades, rose-growing was Luxembourg's third largest export industry, after steel and slate.
The "lower" part, on the other hand, focuses on entertainment, from beer gardens (Westeschgaard) to large dance and vaudeville establishments (Bataclan, Cirque Renquin, Théâtre Gaité) to the "Schueberfouer".
