Virtual Reality (VR) with the Petrusse Express - A journey into the past

The collaboration with the City of Luxembourg and Urban Timetravel, this innovation, supported by VR technology based on geolocation, allows you to see the past of exactly where you are, using virtual reality glasses.

On board the Pétrusse Express train, you will travel from the famous Casemates du Bock, Plateau du Rahm and Grund via "Muerbelsmillen", a former mustard factory in the Pfaffenthal. From this point, you will have to put on the VR glasses to be taken on a 360-degree journey to various sights and tourist buildings. You will discover the narrow streets of the Pfaffenthal and see famous Luxembourgers as well as the inhabitants in their historical dress.

Experience this journey rich in images and sounds... and let yourself be surprised!

Booking was very simple and quick. No problem. The tour itself leads you to some places where normal tourists in Luxembourg City don't come across. From this point of view it's already really worth taking this tour. The VR experience was extraordinary and very funny. To being explained life in 1867 in this extraordinary city was very interesting. From the technical point of view the VR experience was really good. You can turn around and see the whole surrounding as in the ancient times. Of course there were a few bugs that need to be worked on. It still has the impression of a video game. What I missed most was that during the VR presentation you were not able to compare the view of 1867 with the current surrounding. You had to take off the VR device to see whats really around. This could be improved in my opinion. But all in all it was a very funny and extraordinary experience. It's really worth taking this tour. That's the opinion of an inhabitant of Luxembourg City.
The tour is nice but there were quite a few technical flaws in it. Our four VR presentations e.g. had white and black blind spots and the spoken text often skipped, over the whole tour (not only in the VR part). This all needs work on it.

The virtual reality is just 10 minutes along the ride and most of the scenes look similar and nothing spectacular. I got sick wearing the virtual reality mask as the roads were bumpy, so I had to stop using it. We booked for our 9 year old son (paid €19 online), but when we arrived, we were told that he is too young for the virtual reality. In fact, we went for our son, so it was very disappointing... I have requested the reimbursement online, but not yet received any response. Online booking should be fixed so that we cannot reserve the tickets for children who are not allowed for the virtual reality.

Katia P. - Product Manager: : Dear Yurika, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and regret to read that the VR product was not up to your expectations. Indeed, it can be a little bumpy as it is a virtual reality tour on wheels, the streets are quite ancient. However, the ride is exactly 15 minutes, never less. We are completely agreeing with you the misunderstanding concerning the rate; this is why it has been changed now and improved. We hope to see you soon again. The Moyocci & Sightseeing team.

The time travel was a nice addition to the Petrusse ride but I think the price was a bit steep. Otherwise the the booking, the explanatory video and the process were easy and user friendly. The driver was eager to give additional explanations.

Katia Pinhal, Product Manager: : Dear M. Tsene, many thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Concerning the price, it corresponds to the type of product such as the "virtual reality" tour ; we have to consider the time and resources invested in order to create the product. Trust us, we are one of the cheapest when it comes to virtual reality :-) Indeed, we have worked in order to prepare customer-friendly explanations and a video. Thank you for the nice feedback towards our driver. Come visit us again soon. Best regards,

Learn more about the history of Luxembourg, from the Middle Ages to the modern age, aboard our convertible bus. We will show you the fascinating nature of the Mullerthal, "Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland", and take you to the oldest city of Luxembourg.
