Discover the city of Luxembourg by e-bike

Just 15 minutes from the European Convention Center Luxembourg you can enjoy a e-bike tour that will allow you to discover the wonderful city of Luxembourg at your own pace.

We had the opportunity to enjoy the “Good Morning Luxembourg” E-bike Tour and it was definitely a 100% fun and fantastic experience.

Just 15 min away by tram from the Convention Park Europe (Kirchberg, Philharmonie / Mudam to Hamilius station), we started the tour from their Concept Store in the heart of the city (22 Rue Louvigny, 1946 Luxembourg) and we discovered the most beautiful places of the capital in a single bike trip.

We moved around on their latest generation e-bikes to get from one place to another without getting too tired, because the bicycle uses different assistance modes, among which is the turbo mode that allows you to climb a pair of little hills with hardly any effort.

On the route, you’ll move around the city and you’ll find a trail of paved streets, with a mix of dedicated cyclist lanes and pathways. During this amazing and funny guided cycling tour you’ll be amazed by the open spaces and green areas of the lower town, the charming forests near the capital and the idyllic and peaceful parks.

So if you are in the Convention Park Luxembourg we recommend you to disconnect for a few hours and discover the city with this fantastic plan.

MUDAM Museum

Just 5 minutes walk from the European Convention Center Luxembourg and next to the Philharmonie Luxembourg you will find the Mudam Museum, an ideal space to disconnect and enjoy art in a privileged environment.

During our visit we had the pleasure of visiting the Mudam museum (3, Park Dräi Eechelen, L-1499 Luxembourg-Kirchberg), an iconic architectural landmark of Luxembourg City. The building is spread over three levels of 4,000 m2 of surface area dedicated to the museum’s exhibitions and collection and its architecture is intended as a dialogue between the natural and historical context of its site and the visitor can perceive it from the first moment.

We have been able to enjoy the paintings by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, the suspended Akari lamps by Isamu Noguchi, the stunishing artworks by Tacita Dean and the monumental sculptures by Monika Sosnowska among others. Collections that invite reflection and that allow visitors to discover art and disconnect from their day to day.

Casemates Petrusse

After extensive enhancement and security works, the Pétrusse Casemates reopened with a cutting-edge scenography and mesmerising light installations that bring history to life.

Thanks to the European Convention Center Luxembourg we had the opportunity to visit and discover the wonderful Petrusse Casemates! (Place de la Constitution Luxembourg, 2450, Luxemburgo).

Date back to the time when the Spanish modernised the medieval fortifications and built large bastions, the Petrusse Casemates offers the possibility to immerse yourself in Luxembourg’s history. You can relive through an audiovisual installation the history of its construction, walk through its tunnels and discover the different uses they have had throughout its history: shooting ranges, mushroom cultivation, concerts, bazaars, the storage of champagne bottles and shelters.

 

The fortifications of the city of Luxembourg and its old quarters were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1994.

A beautiful and different way to discover the history of Luxembourg!
