Luxembourg City is peddling its Unesco heritage to tourists on two wheels after launching a new, self-led bike tour.
The 9.5-kilometre route crosses the Petrusse Valley, the Grund, Clausen and Pfaffenthal districts, while introducing visitors to some 80 sites, monuments and attractions including the St Quirin chapel, Mansfeld park and the birthplaces of historical figures.
“It also allows us to discover the important asset that this site represents for the quality of life in our city,” said Simone Beck, president of the Luxembourg Unesco Commission, during the tour inauguration on Friday.
The route is available as a map, with information in 5 different languages, including English. Tour followers are encouraged to use the Izi-Travel, komoot.com and Spoticle.lu smartphone applications.
