Steinfort (Luxembourgish: Stengefort) is a commune and town in western Luxembourg. It is part of the canton of Capellen, which is part of the district of Luxembourg.

As of 2005, the town of Steinfort, which lies in the north of the commune, has a population of 2,184. Other towns within the commune include Hagen, Kleinbettingen and Grass.



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


Steinfort[1] was served by a railway that stretched 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.
