Stop 1: 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 2:  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.

Booking was simpel and the train arrived on point. It was a beautiful route! After 30 minutes (not 45?!?) we were back. That was short for the price we paid.

As a grandpa with a grandchild, we enjoyed the smooth ride and the nice views of the older city. The tour was pleasant, although a bit slow; we'd appreciate a longer tour on historical sites. The booking experience was easy-peasy. I'd recommend this tour to tourists on a one-day stay who want to get a glimpse of the ancient Luxembourg city. For those who can stay more, or who have already seen a bit of it, I'd rather advise them to take the hop on-off bus.

I would definitely recommend this experience for everyone. Bookings was done online with no difficulty. Nice, relaxed atmosphere where you can see and experience the Grund (Luxembourg) in a different view and it was an eye opener to hear about the history, architecture and deep culture of Luxembourg. Even more curious now about history of Luxembourg. Kids enjoyed the Green train ride. Great experience. Thank you.
