Thanks.

Court buildings, built just a couple of years ago. Looks quite traditional though:

Nice pictures Really neat! I can easily imagine that Paris would have looked something like this if that city had had a population of 100k people.

Btw, most of the stores and the banks (at least those you've displayed) have French inscriptions. Is Letzeburgisch/German used to any greater degree?

I think most of the general population speaks Letzebuergesch and German. I definitely didn't run into any problems in LX while speaking German. Most of the newspapers appear to be in German as well while French is the legislative language of the country.
