The Parish Church of Our Lady, Refuge of the Sick, built in 1875, is now grouped with other parishes in the pastoral community of Weimerskirch. It is the location of the only regular celebration authorised by the Archdiocese of Mass of the Roman Rite in its 1962 version (Tridentine Mass), which takes place at 11.30 every Sunday except from 20th. July to 7th September inclusive.
Kirchberg is also home to many other institutions of national importance. D'Coque arena is the country's largest sports venue, with seating for 8,300 spectators, and occupies a large part of the 'quartier du parc' in central Kirchberg. The Philharmonie Luxembourg is Luxembourg's national concert hall, the grand auditorium of which can seat over 1,500 people. Mudam, a museum of modern art opened in 2006, was designed by I.M. Pei and displays works by some of the world's most notable modern artists. On the same site as the Mudam is the reconstructed Fort Thüngen, a part of Luxembourg's once formidable fortifications.
Like Luxembourg City, Kirchberg has a general oceanic climate (Köppen: Cfb), marked by high precipitation, particularly in late summer. However, the slope and height of the area accounts for occasional lower temperatures (up to 1° below Luxembourg City), more frequent fog and enhanced precipitation of both rain and snow.
