Description

 

Are you passionate about history and culture, about the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg?

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.

 

Travel with us to the past to better understand the present. This tour of the capital follows an itinerary where each stopover in front of a symbolic site of the former "Gibraltar of the North" opens an exciting chapter.

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.

The train was a wonderful way to see the most historical sites of the city. It was an efficient, low-cost guided tour, which helped my friends and I understand more about the history of Luxembourg. It was also super easy to book a ticket - we walked up to the QR code right next to the Casemates du Bock site and got on the train 10 minutes later. We had a great time!

The audio was not in tune with the viewings

The headphone system was really poor, so any jostling (which is constant in this little train) makes for an awful screeching static noise in your headphones, so you can hear barely any of the audio the entire tour, which is sort of the whole point. There's also a destination along the way where they're supposed to let you off so you can explore and grab the next train, but they didn't even stop. Overall really disappointing, learned nothing, and didn't see anything you can't see by just wandering around yourself. Would not recommend.
