Studies on the connection between migration and urbanity are usually concerned with conditions and developments in cities. The presence of ‘urbanity’ in rural space is the topic of the present contribution. It will be discussed using the example of residential migration in the Greater Region SaarLorLux. The massive influx of residential migrants from Luxembourg into the border regions of the neighbouring countries is a relatively recent phenomenon, the main cause of which lies in the developments in the real-estate market in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. This phenomenon is of special interest for the topic of migration in rural areas in two regards: because of the important demographic changes produced by the residential migrants in individual border villages and because of the complex composition of the group of residential migrants, which is extremely differentiated regarding the dimension rural – urban. Central to the article is the question, whether urban attitudes and practices become visible in German border villages, and, if so, how the migratory movement from Luxembourg influences this ‘rural urbanity’. Furthermore, taking the everyday practices of the residential migrants as starting point, it asks in how far the dichotomy urbanity - rurality presents a conceptual approach for the examination of individual and structural integration processes.

Studies on the connection of migration and urbanity are usually concerned with conditions and developments in cities. The possible presence of ‘urbanity’ also in rural space is the topic of the present contribution and will be discussed through the example of residential migration in the ‘Greater Region Saar-Lor-Lux’. The massive influx of residential migrants from Luxembourg into the border regions of the neighbouring countries is a relatively recent phenomenon, the main cause of which lies in the developments in the real-estate market in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. This phenomenon is of special interest for the topic of migration in rural areas in two regards: on the one hand, because of the complex composition of the group of residential migrants, which is extremely differentiated regarding the dimension rural - urban; and on the other hand, because of the serious demographic changes, which the residential migrants have produced in individual border villages. Central to our study is the question, whether urban attitudes and practices become visible in German border villages, and, if so, how the migratory movement from Luxembourg influences this ‘rural urbanity’. Furthermore, taking the everyday practices of the residential migrants as starting point, this contribution considers the question, in how far the dichotomy urbanity - rurality presents a conceptual approach for the examination of individual and structural integration processes.

„Borderlands“ werden zunehmend als ein distinktes ethnologisches Forschungsfeld wahrgenommen. Ein Phänomen, das in diesem Zusammenhang erst in jüngster Zeit Beachtung findet, ist das grenzüberschreitende Wohnen. Der Beitrag befasst sich mit dieser Erscheinung in der Großregion SaarLorLux, d.h. in einem Gebiet, das einerseits aufgrund der besonderen wirtschaftlichen Anziehungskraft des Großherzogtums Luxemburg durch ein außergewöhnliches Maß an Migration und Transnationalismus, andererseits jedoch durch ausgeprägt rurale Strukturen gekennzeichnet ist. Aufgrund dieser besonderen Verhältnisse stellt der deutsch-luxemburgische Grenzraum einen interessanten Kasus für die Untersuchung der Herausbildung von „borderland“-Gemeinschaften und -Identitäten dar. Auf der Grundlage ethnographischer Fallstudien in deutschen Grenzdörfern, die seit einigen Jahren eine bedeutende und sehr diverse Zuwanderung aus Luxemburg erleben, soll gezeigt werden, dass die Integrations- und Identifikationsprozesse in diesem „borderland“ von sehr heterogenen und vermeintlich widerstreitenden Kräften bestimmt sind und darum nur unzureichend durch die geläufigen Konzepte der sozialwissenschaftlichen Mobilitätsforschung – Globalisierung, Transnationalismus, Kosmopolitismus etc. – erfasst werden können.
