Transport[edit]

Road[edit]

Steinfort lies at the Belgian/Luxembourg border on the Route d'Arlon, the original road linking Luxembourg City to Arlon.

Rail[edit]

Steinfort[1] was served by the Prince Henri Railway that ran from Pétange to Ettelbruck in the north of the country. Despite the line's closure in 1967, the rails were never lifted and old rail infrastructure is still visible through Steinfort, where it crosses Route D'Arlon at a level crossing.
