Who founded Luxembourg City? Count Siegfried acquired the Bock around 963 and built a castle on the site. Traditionally, this is considered to be Luxembourg City’s founding act. Jean l’Aveugle, another famous figure in Luxembourg’s history, was responsible for founding the Schueberfouer in the Middle Ages.
