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.

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,

It was a very nice experience the only problem was that at some point the audio was not in Spanish but was in English for us is not an issue as we are bilingual but for others not English speakers can create some discomfort.
