Despite not having a commune named after it, Capellen gives its name to the canton of Capellen.
History[change | change source]
When Luxembourg was divided into cantons in 1840, as a result of disputes between Mamer and Koerich, it was decided that the canton should be named Capellen and that Capellen should become the capital of the canton.
