Departure: Montée de Clausen (near the entrance of Bock Casemates)

 

Stop 2: Rives de Clausen

The so-called 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, 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.

 

Stop 3:  Rham Plateau

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.

Take the opportunity to stop for a few minutes, stroll amongst the century-old plane trees, and walk up to the promontory behind the ruins of the four towers. Once at the top, you will have a breathtaking view of the old fortifications, the Holy-Ghost Citadel and the Corniche.

The tour is stated to be 45 minutes long and the audio is timed to match it. Our tour, however, was rushed through in just over 30 minutes. As a consequence, the audio cut off early on multiple occasions so we did not get the full information on what we were supposed to be seeing. The seats on the train are very short and the leg room is negligible. I am only 5’7 and if I did not sit stock still straight up, my knees hit the front of the section I was in. Not worth the cost, especially when it is rushed and made somewhat useless.


Katia Pinhal, Product Manager: : Dear Lianne, many thanks for your feedback. We understand your opinion and regret to hear that you didn't have the expected experience. The Petrusse Express is always supposed to take 45 min around the old town and not less (in any case). Indeed, there is a lack of space for people with long legs (tall people usually tell us the same) inside the train, but unfortunately at the moment there is nothing we can do unless we re-build the train. We sincerely hope you can have a better experience next time and look forward in welcome you soon. Best regards,

Booking was easy via the online app. Interesting pre-recorded tour audio but it kept cutting out partway through each segment.


Katia Pinhal - Product Manager : Dear M. Dannatt, many thanks for taking the time to leave us your review. It makes us very happy to know that. Our Sightseeing team has worked very hard to create a user-friendly app and facilitate the online booking for our customers. Regarding the audio guide in the train, we are very sorry to hear it. Our team has been working on this issue and trying to get it fixed. Nevertheless, we hope to see you soon. Best regards,

With this guided tour, we invite you to discover the main points of interest of the capital by e-bike.

The tour includes some very steep inclines, which is why it is important to be accompanied by an experienced guide.
