Pulvermühl belonged to the former municipality of Hamm, but merged with Luxembourg City in 1920 along with other surrounding municipalities.

It is located at the intersection of the old route between Hamm and Luxembourg, and the road from Luxembourg to Remich. The Pulvermühl mill is first mentioned in records from the 18thcentury. It was transformed a century later into a cotton mill, and then into a drapery. Since 1948, an international company producing lifting and hauling equipment, as well as a dry cleaner's, have operated in the buildings of the old factory.
