Description

A small country but with a great history...

Discover the history of the former “Gibraltar of the North” which revives while driving through the historical sites of the Old Fortress in our Pétrusse Express.

If you decide to get off, you can jump on the next train in 30 minutes.

 

1st stop - Departure: Montée de Clausen (near the entrance of Bock Casemates)

2nd stop - 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.

 3rd stop - 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.

A great way to explore the city and learn a bit about the history. A great family idea. We booked online and it was quick and easy.

In our opinion the ride was a bit too expensive für what we’ve got. It should be a 45 minutes long ride, but our tour only took 35 minutes… and this for 14,50€ per person is quite too much. We enjoyed the ride while listening to the nice audio guide. We would not recommend the tour.


Moyocci / Sightseeing.lu Team : Dear Kim, thank you for taking the time to give us your review. We apologize if the tour has not taken 45 minutes, because that is the time it is supposed to drive- not less, not more. As for the pricing, it is actually the price we need to take into account given the fact that is a heavy weight vehicle, with a driver in the capital city. Anywhere in Europe, you will find these kind of prices. However, we thank you for your feedback!

The positives: it's a cute little bus train with a nice and interesting itinerary and an informative audio guide. I enjoyed the experience. BUT... I had to use my computer to make the booking because the payment page would not load on my smartphone. The bus departed at 13:16 instead of 13:00. I understand small delays can happen, but 16 minutes for a 40 minute journey seems excessive. There is too little leg room. I am 172 cm and kept on hitting my knees. My brother is 194 cm and could not sit straight. The metal floor gets slippery when wet, and since there is nothing to hold on to you slide and hurt your knees when the bus stops abruptly, which it did frequently. On a slopes the driver stopped the engine and excited the cabin to check on something (he walked around the vehicle). This was a big safety risk since there was no-one in the driver’s cabin and the vehicle was positioned on a slope. I felt unsafe at that moment.
