Luxembourg: City Train Ticket

1. Luxembourg: City Train Ticket

Discover the old town of Luxembourg with tickets to the iconic City Train. Navigate the most popular districts and come across ancient landmarks. Listen to insightful commentary on board and gaze at stunning views of the historic center. Thanks to the route taken by the City Train, formerly known as the Petrusse Express, travelers aboard the city train depart from the old town to the historic centre of Luxembourg City. The 45-minute journey starts at the Montée de Clausen, more precisely at the Um Bock stop, and then heads towards the Grund area and Rives de Clausen, the Plateau du Rham and back to its starting point. The Rives de Clausen form a district of bars and restaurants, established on the site of the former Luxembourg beer brewery “Mousel”. Situated along the Alzette river, the Rives de Clausen appeal to a wide variety of tastes and attract a very cosmopolitan public, which is typical for Luxembourg. The Rives de Clausen are also part of a larger plan to enhance the suburbs of the former fortress. The Rham Plateau proudly overlooks three sides of the Alzette valley and offers a stunning view of the old city of Luxembourg. It has been an integral part of Luxembourg’s fortifications since the 15th century and was later expanded by Vauban with four imposing military barracks, currently used as modern and comfortable housing for seniors. You can make a stop for a few minutes while waiting for the next train.

The Best of Luxembourg City: Guided E-Bike Tour

2. The Best of Luxembourg City: Guided E-Bike Tour

Begin at the meeting point in the heart of the city. Accompanied by a multilingual guide, head off to discover the most beautiful places of the capital in a single bike trip. Move around on some latest generation electric bikes to get from one place to another without getting too tired, because this tour doesn't include any hills... or almost none. Take advantage of elevators and funiculars to move uphill. Be immersed in the city's green heart, the Petrusse valley with its numerous possibilities to relax in green areas from the city center. From there you will be directed to the Grund where you will take the elevator to the plateau St. Esprit and the Judicial City - Cité Judiciaire. Ride along the Grand Ducal Palace to the historical center and its Herb Market. From the Bock crag, known as "Bockfiels", you have a wonderful view of the Grund and the Neumünster Abbey, which you will reach by bike right after. A small trail along the Alzette will lead you to the Rives de Clausen, a popular nightlife spot amongst Luxembourgish people. Continue in the Pfaffenthal until you reach the funicular that will take you up to the Kirchberg. Get out at the foot of the European institutions. Even this imposing alley has its own little park, which you can cross by bike, and then discover the most important buildings of the Luxembourg financial center. Welcome to the Kirchberg. This city district combines modernism and antiquity, and nothing highlights this fact better than the Mudam. The Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art was built on a former military fort that stands out with its imposing glass surfaces on the old 19th-century walls. Once you've passed through, go back down to the Pfaffenthal to take the panoramic elevator to the gardens of the Pescatore Foundation. Reach the city park and its "Kinnekswiss" which announces the end of the e-bike tour through the capital. The guide joins you for the whole duration of the tour and is happy to respond to your questions.

The tour was simply great! The bikes were new and in great shape. Our tour guide Marc kept switching to German especially for us and basically conducted the tour in two languages. We were a group of 6 bikes in total, which was really perfect. The duration of 3 hours, or a little more, was simply optimal. We saw so many things, experienced the city from a completely different perspective and are very happy to have taken this tour. We can really recommend this e-bike tour to anyone who is just spending a weekend in Luxembourg! Many thanks again to Marc for this lovely day!

Our guide Marc was very friendly and competent, and he even translated into German. We were an international group speaking English, French and German. The bike tour was just great from start to finish. Marc knew exactly what we were doing, we would never have seen it all on foot. He thought of everything. We saw beautiful places, the upper and lower town, and many other great places. So you could really discover Luxembourg during this time. Thank you for this great time! Highly recommended!

Great tour with Marco, very informative and a wonderful overview of the city. Definitely made the right choice to book the E-bike this city has some climbs but that turbo mode on the bike made it super easy so you don’t need to be a Tour de France athlete. Would highly recommend, way better than just the walking tour.

The tour was excellent EXCEPT the weather, but Marco was delightful and we almost forgot how cold it was. The E-bikes were comfortable and easy to maneuver. Highly recommend!

great time. available and welcoming. many more places visited. very good for discovering luxembourg
