Esch-sur-Sûre is a town located in the Luxembourgian Ardennes. The town of Esch-sur-Sûre is rather small, counting just over 300 inhabitants.
Esch-sur-Sûre is mostly known for the Upper Sûre dam, built in the 1960s to meet the country's drinking water needs.
The -sur-Sûre suffix of the town's name refers to the river Sauer, which is called Sûre in French. The name means nothing more than Esch on the river Sauer.
