The Best of Luxembourg City: Guided E-Bike Tour

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

Begin at the Sightseeing Concept Store in the heart of the city at 22, rue Louvigny. Accompanied by a private guide, you will then 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 is more obvious than the Mudam to prove this to you. 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.

Greg drove us through the city of Luxembourg and explained everything to us in a very understandable way. He told us about the fortresses, which were expanded again and again, and also took us to modern Luxembourg to the European Parliament and the old town. It was very entertaining. The time flew by. Of the specified 3 hours, 3 1/2 hours were over. The e-bikes were brand new and super good. We had a lot of fun with the tour and can recommend it 100%.

Gregory heeft ons heel goed begeleid en alles laten zien van Luxemburg! Wij hebben heel veel lol gehad op de fiets en de tijd is voorbij gevlogen. En dankzij Gregory hebben wij mooie foto’s want hij heeft heel veel foto’s van ons gemaakt! Echt een aanrader!

Great beautiful bike tour. Took a little longer than indicated but seen all the beautiful places. Gregory is a friendly guide with a lot of information about the history of Luxembourg.
