thumb Limpertsberg (Template:Lang-lb) is a quarter in north-western Luxembourg City, in the centre of Luxembourg.

In the south, on the border with the main city is the Glacis, a large open air parking lot which hosts the annual Schueberfouer fair, the largest fair in the country. Next to the Glacis is the Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.

Limpertsberg's Notre-Dame cemetery has a Monumen de la résistance et de la déportation (Monument of the national resistance and deportation). The cemetery features the bronze sculpture The Political Prisoner by Luxembourg's best-known sculptor Lucien Wercollier. The Limpertsberg bronze is one of three casts of the sculpture, with the other two at the Musée national de la résistance (National Resistance Museum) in Esch-sur-Alzette and the National Monument to the Resistance and to the Deportation at Notre-Dame cemetery in Luxembourg City.

To the south east is another iconic landmark, the Grand Duchess Charlotte Bridge, also known as the Red Bridge due to its colour. It connects Limpertsberg to the European district of Kirchberg over the Pfaffenthal and the Alzette river.

In 2001, the quarter had a population of 7,546 people.
