great advice: don't sit in the first car

If you're thinking of taking this little 40 minute express train make sure you sit towards the back car. Whatever you do, do not sit in the first one. The engine was so loud... read more

Never managed to do this ride. We were told by the local tourist information centre that the train would be starting up at 1.30pm on Sunday.... we waited and waited nothing! When we asked a local they suggested that due to the running event going on that day there wouldn't be one. 1. Would it hurt to clearly sign post... More

Only did this by luck - happened to see it go by. Excellent tour - takes you by much of the older parts of the city, with a well-done tour (you can choose the language you hear the tour in. The English version was well done). You can "hop on or off" or take the whole tour (about an hour)... More

This 40 minute ride around Luxembourg was well worth it. After walking around the city for about 2 hours we decided to take this express as opposed to the typical double decker bus. Glad we made this choice. Quick and very informative. And it gave out feet a rest as the oil is quite hilly in spots. Some good pics... More

I was so impressed by seeing this train making its way through the narrow streets, that decided to try it "from the outside". The only problem was to find the man who sold me a ticket :) After that everything was good, it was interesting and relaxing ride. Recommended, especially when the weather is not so good for walking.

The actual trip was interesting, although you can't get off and walk around to get back on the next one! As you got a fixed time on ticket. The ride itself was a little bumpy at times. The commentary was done in a silly story which I didn't understand, and that was a shame because there is surely a lot... More

Train starts close to the Block casemate entry. Leaving every 30 minutes. Tour Duration: 40 min. Worth for a good overview of the City and ist history.

It was raining the day we took this ride so turned out to be better than walking. We enjoyed the tour - just under an hour - though we did think the commentary could have been better. The scenery was pretty and gave us an introduction to the Grund! We did have a laugh, though!!

SHORT STORY: Unorganized, unfriendly, unenthusiastic, bumpy, no scenic stops, terrible audio, really quite sad LONG STORY: We had purchased tickets online and unlike every tour we have purchased before there was no rendezvous point listed. We walk to the stand for the company and he tells us that we are a 10-15 minute walk away, making us nearly late. As... More

Forget the bumpy ride....you would go to someplace in the Far East with poor roads and still be blown away by beauty.. This place is analogous. The tour allows for spectacular views of the Gorge, the Adolphe Bridge and the very beautiful building across the gorge known as the High Authority of The European Coal and Steel Community. Overall the... More
