Get on and off at any of our 15 bus stops:

1. Petrus The Petrus Valley, situated between the city centre and the Bourbon Plateau, is a very popular park and excursion destination for the inhabitants of the capital. It was built in 1867, when the fortress of Luxembourg was demolished, and the fortifications replaced by footpaths, meadows and gardens. Today there are, among other attractions, a mini golf field and a skateboard park. Two large bridges cross the valley, the Adolphe Bridge, built in 1905 and the “Passerelle” built from 1859 to 1861.

2. Al Avenue At the end of the two “Al” and “Nei” Avenues stands Luxembourg’s main railway station. It was built in 1913 in neo-baroque style. For strategic reasons, the first railway station in Luxembourg was made of wood in the middle of the 19th century. Thus, it could be quickly demolished in the event of an invasion of the fortress. The two avenues that lead from the city, past the “Place de Paris” to the railway station, are ideal places to stroll and shop.

3. Roud Bréck-Pafendall Quai 1B The station “Roud Bréck-Pafendall” is an important element for the tram line in Luxembourg. A cable car takes the train passengers from Pfaffenthal up to the station, where they can continue their journey by bus or tram. The European and banking district of Kirchberg also starts here. The elegant bridge, popularly known as the “Red Bridge”, forms the link between the city and the Kirchberg.

4. Schiessentümpel This small waterfall with its 3 waterjets is situated on the Black Ernz. It is one of the most photographed subjects in the Mullerthal Region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland.

5. Cascades/Touristcenter Heringer Millen In this magnificently restored 17th century flour mill, there is a tourist office, a mill museum, a large mill wheel still in use, a centre where you can borrow free hiking equipment and an old wood-burning oven, where bread is still baked by hand on certain days.

6. Vugelsmillen From here, you can head towards BeaufortCastle on Mullerthal Trail Route 3. You walk along Halerbaach and Haupeschbaach and past impressive rock formations.

7. Beaufort-Centre – « Op der Gare » The medieval castle of Beaufort was built during four different periods, between the 11th and the 17th century. You can visit the castle on your own every day from 9 am to 6 pm. Access to the 17th century Renaissance castle is only granted for guided groups.

8. Reisdorf-Centre – « Bei der Gare » Reisdorf is literally situated on the boundary of the two touristic regions of Mullerthal – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland and Éislek. The River Sûre runs through the village. Wallendorf-Pont also belongs to the commune of Reisdorf which counts a bit more than 1.000 inhabitants.

9. Vianden « Gare » The small medieval town of Vianden attracts thousands of visitors every year. Visit the impressive castle, the city walls with their defensive towers and the only chairlift in Luxembourg.

10. Vianden – Place Engelmann The inhabitants of Vianden have always been clever craftsmen. On the markets in Vianden they sold their manufactured products and bought the goods they needed. Nevertheless, they also loved art. The ambulant Vianden whitewashers (“Veiner Weisserten”) and musicians displayed their happy mood and humorous mischievousness throughout the country, and everybody was dancing to the tunes of the Vianden musicians. The citizens of Vianden have stayed faithful to their old traditions. In autumn they celebrate their ancient folklore customs: the nut-fair, the St. Martin Fire, their carnival and their specific Good-Friday celebration called “Jaudes”.

11. Viewpoint – Vianden Castle With nearly 200.000 visitors each year, Vianden Castle is the most visited monument in the Grand Duchy. It was constructed between the 11th and 14th centuries on the foundations of a Roman ‘castellum’ and a Carolingian refuge.

12. « Bleesbréck » With more or less 7.000 inhabitants, the city of Diekirch is located on the banks of the River Sûre and offers a wide range of leisure activities, such as hiking and biking trails, museums, street entertainment in the pedestrian zone, shopping or cozy terraces.

13. Bettendorf « Gemeng » The community of Bettendorf counts about 2.800 inhabitants. Here you can find, in the middle of the so-called “Schofsbësch” (“Sheep forest”), an old stone quarry with an area of 23.9 hectares. The most impressive building in the village is certainly the castle of Bettendorf, built in 1728.

14. Dillingen-Centre – « Déiljen » Dillingen is located on the Sûre, which is ideal for kayaking. You can rent a kayak and paddle along the 16 km route to Echternacherbrück.

15. Echternach – « Gare Centre » Echternach is the oldest city in Luxembourg and was founded in 698 by the Benedictine monk Willibrord. Visit the marketplace, the Basilica, the Benedictine Abbey including the Orangerie and the Rococo Pavilion in the municipal park. In 2010, the famous Hopping Procession of Echternach on Whit Tuesday became part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.
