"Im Jahr 1804, in dem auch der Code Napoléon eingeführt wurde, unternahm Napoleon eine längere Reise durch die eroberten linksrheinischen Gebiete. Dabei machte er auch Station in Luxemburg, das damals zum Wälderdépartement der Französischen Republik gehörte. Beim Einzug in Luxemburg über die Sauerbrücke in Wasserbillig wurde er vom Bürgermeister Valère Seyl und vom Pfarrer von Grevenmacher, Johann Jakob Ransonnet, in vollem Ornat mit Begrüßungsansprachen empfangen."

[EN] A famous visitor of Wasserbillig was Napoleon Bonaparte.

"In 1804, when the Napoleonic Code was introduced, Napoleon made a longer journey through the conquered areas on the left bank of the Rhine. He also made a stop in Luxembourg, which at that time belonged to the Forest Department of the French Republic. When he moved into Luxembourg over the Sauerbrücke in Wasserbillig, he was received in full dress by the mayor Valère Seyl and the parish priest of Grevenmacher, Johann Jakob Ransonnet, with welcoming speeches.
