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.

My daughter likes riding the train (she’s 3) but the ride was really bumpy making it near impossible to take decent photos unless the train was stopped which was infrequent. The route is also still short by ~15 minutes of the quoted time and I see other reviewers call that out—if it’s going to be this way for much longer they really should update the website. The disclaimer is insufficient. I would have liked clearer opportunities to get out and enjoy an area before catching the next train. The audio guide was fun and informative. I learned something new. But for the price, probably won’t be doing it again.

We are little bit disappointed. We expected to make the 35/40-minute planned visit. But when we arrived at the departure, the driver tells us that the visit will only last 20 minutes. The reason ? Renovation works on certain points of the visit. Nothing was posted on the website so we had to pay the full price for a visit which only lasted half of the planned time. I find that a little bit dishonest. The least thing you can do would have been to update the website before. In any case thank you for this visit, the city is beautiful and it is still a nice experience. We had a nice time although it passed a little fast. We'll come back. Kisses from France


Moyocci Team : Dear Mr. Curton, Thank you for your honest words. We're sorry to hear that you got disappointed. Unfortunately we were only informed about the situation during the weekend, which left us no time to put the information on our website. However, we will do so as soon as possible! Thanks for your feedback. We are also currently looking for an alternative itinerary, to provide the duration of 40 minutes and to justify the ticket price. We're very sorry. It's good to hear that you still had a good time with us. Take care! Best wishes, Your Moyocci Team

There could be more speaking ( explanation) on the city! More historical details! Less music and less „scenes“, which are very hard to understand


Moyocci Team : Hi Frank, We're sorry that you visited on a day, where we faced many problems due to some unexpected construction work on our route. Since we couldn't drive our normal way, there was no audio guide/comments at all for part of the route and we had to play music instead. We're very sorry for this. Usually we get positive feedback on our audio guide because people like it. Again, our apologies! Best regards, Your Moyocci Team
