The Best of Luxembourg City: Guided E-Bike Tour

2. The Best of Luxembourg City: Guided E-Bike Tour

Begin at the meeting point in the heart of the city. Accompanied by a multilingual guide, head off to discover the most beautiful places of the capital in a single bike trip. Move around on some latest generation electric bikes to get from one place to another without getting too tired, because this tour doesn't include any hills... or almost none. Take advantage of elevators and funiculars to move uphill. Be immersed in the city's green heart, the Petrusse valley with its numerous possibilities to relax in green areas from the city center. From there you will be directed to the Grund where you will take the elevator to the plateau St. Esprit and the Judicial City - Cité Judiciaire. Ride along the Grand Ducal Palace to the historical center and its Herb Market. From the Bock crag, known as "Bockfiels", you have a wonderful view of the Grund and the Neumünster Abbey, which you will reach by bike right after. A small trail along the Alzette will lead you to the Rives de Clausen, a popular nightlife spot amongst Luxembourgish people. Continue in the Pfaffenthal until you reach the funicular that will take you up to the Kirchberg. Get out at the foot of the European institutions. Even this imposing alley has its own little park, which you can cross by bike, and then discover the most important buildings of the Luxembourg financial center. Welcome to the Kirchberg. This city district combines modernism and antiquity, and nothing highlights this fact better than the Mudam. The Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art was built on a former military fort that stands out with its imposing glass surfaces on the old 19th-century walls. Once you've passed through, go back down to the Pfaffenthal to take the panoramic elevator to the gardens of the Pescatore Foundation. Reach the city park and its "Kinnekswiss" which announces the end of the e-bike tour through the capital. The guide joins you for the whole duration of the tour and is happy to respond to your questions.
