    Elevator between Grund and Vielle Ville

    by leics Updated Feb 24, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grund is the oldest part of Luxembourg city and, imo, you should definitely try to visit.

    But it's a long way down from Vielle Ville (Ville Haute) to the valley of the river Alzette and you may not feel like walking down....or, more likely, feel like walking back up again!

    There's a nifty solution to this. An elevator (which also serves undergound parking garages) is freely available to the general public between 0630 (^.30 am) and 2030 (8.30pm), taking you from Place du Saint-Esprit down to Rue Munster in Grund.

    It's not scenic, I'm afraid: it's a modern steel elevator which is fully-enclosed. But it does the job, and it's free.

    Good for giving your legs a rest as you explore Luxembourg!

    Findel airport: tiny but efficient

    by leics Written Feb 16, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Findel airport is only about 8km from Luxembourg city and is served by many mainstream carriers (and now Easyjet as well).

    It's not huge..one wouldn't expect a huge airport in a tiny country...but it has everything one wants:

    loads of taxis and an excellent, frequent and cheap bus service into the city as well as bus services to other parts of the country;

    an airy and light departures area with a small cafe and a couple of shops;

    efficient check-in procedures, including self-check-in machines for airlines such as KLM:

    pleasant and courteous staff at security (at least, they were when I visited);

    a pleasant departure lounge, with ample seating, a few shops, another cafe/bar and a smoking 'cabin'.

    Everywhere is sparklingly clean and all staff were helpful and friendly. I was very impressed by Findel. As airports go, it's a good one. :-)

    Gare Lëtzebuerg: Luxembourg City Train Station

    by TooTallFinn24 Written Jul 3, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gare Lëtzebuerg ,as the locals refer to it, is the main railway station serving Luxemboug. It is located in southern Luxembourg City about 2 km from the city's downtown. It serves as the main location for all of Luxembourg's rail traffic. The station is named after Gare, one of the main sections of Luxembourg City.

    The walk from the train station to downtown takes about 20 minutes. From the station you will pass what appears to be several old government buildings. You will cross a bridge over the River Pétrusse to get into downtown.

    We took the train from the central station in Brussels. While the train made many stops along the way the journey still took just over two hours.

    When my friend and I were here, we were flying out at 4am the next morning. We decided to go to the airport as we had nowhere to stay that evening. It cost us 22 euros and we ended up sat outside the airport on a luggage trolley, with all of your clothes on to keep warm as it was 8 degrees and the airport closed every night for 4 hours!!!

    BUS TO/FROM THE AIRPORT

    by DAO Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The cheapest and easy way to get to and from the capital and Findel International Airport is bus no. 16. Labelled ‘AUTOBUS CENTRE-GARE, HESPERANGE 16’ it costs less than 2 Euros and takes only 15 minutes to get to the centre. The bright clean and modern busses display the stops inside so you know when you are at your stop. Coming from the airport you want to get off at the ‘ROYAL’ stop which only around the corner from the Place Hamilius, the main bus terminus. Its also the start of the pedestrian area of the old town. Busses every 20 minutes except on Sundays when they run every 30 minutes. Why pay for a taxi when its this quick and cheap?

    Train

    by antistar Written Dec 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For me the best way to reach Luxembourg is by train, especially if arriving from Germany where you will be treated to some breathtaking views from the train bridges approaching the capital city. Luxembourg City is well linked regionally, with direct trains to several major cities, including Paris, Brussels and Cologne.

    The railway station is a little walk from the central Haute Ville, but it is a grand old building, even if its environs are a bit run down.

    Luxembourg Airport

    by antistar Written Dec 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a small country and a small airport. You will probably be better off flying to one of the nearby mega cities, like Amsterdam or Paris, than flying directly to Luxembourg. There are few flights, and the national airline, LuxAir, seems to serve mostly as a carriage for locals to reach warmer parts of Europe. The airport is mostly used for cargo.

    VELO! BICYCLES FOR LITTLE OR FREE

    by DAO Updated Sep 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Across the capital there are a series of automated rental bicycle stands that are free for shorter periods of time. Simply go up to the computerised kiosk at the larger stand and insert a credit card. Instructions are not that straight forward, but essentially you pay 1 Euro to get a unique code you can use over and over again. When you unlike a bike using your code you can cycle all over the city. When you are done you can go to any of the stands and simply reinsert the cycle into a stand. For short periods (30 minutes) its free and for longer time periods its economical. If you leave the bike unlocked somewhere and its gets stolen – you will be hit with a huge fee on your credit card. It’s a great system. Unfortunately some of the smaller stand areas are sometimes full when you want to leave the bike.

    Grund Lift

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jan 21, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cobblestoned Grund district in Luxembourg's lower town is connected with the upper town by a free lift, which descends through the cliff.

    Using the lift saves you a lot of energy when exploring both the upper and lower parts of the city.

    The base of the lift can be found in a tunnel near the western end of the Bisserwee bridge.

    There are free toilts as well. The lift leads up to the Place Du St. Esprit at the south eastern end of the city centre.

    Hop On Hop Off Bus

    by Dabs Written Feb 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luxembourg City is rather small and I thought it was easy to get around on foot but if you don't want to walk there is a hop on hop off bus. It's 12E for adults, tickets are good for 24 hours, commentary is in multiple languages via headphones. It departs from the Place de la Constitution (Constitution Square), same place where you can pick up the Petrusse Express.

    From the website it looks like it only runs on weekends during the off season.

    Miniature Train

    by acemj Updated May 21, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I didn't ride the Miniature Train and I'm not necessarily recommending it, but after my overnight stay in Luxembourg City, I felt like a day trip here would be enough. With that in mind, if your time is short, the train might be a good way to get a good overview of the place without doing it all on foot. This town is full of hills, so conserving energy is important.

    I think the actual name is the Petrusse Express and you can hop on board at place de la Constitution from 10am to 6pm. The tour focuses on the city's fortifications and takes you down into the Petrusse valley. It takes about an hour and costs 6.20 Euros.

    Taxi

    Staying in the youth hostel involves a bit of steep walking if you want to go to the city center. It's only a very few minutes walk, but if you've done it 3 times in a day, you'll want a taxi in the evening!
    Here's a number to call...

    Gare in night

    by Skipka Updated Mar 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Connecting the buses and trains in Luxembourg is pretty good. If you are here more than one month or so, the best choice is to buy blue transport ticket (40 euro) that allows you to use any transport not just in the city of Luxembourg but the whole country. However, it is good to check the timetables and you can get all possible brochures in the tourist information office placed in the building of GARE.

    The city has installed a cycle option for citizens and tourists alike! Even though it was raining heavily, there were quite a few people using them.
