TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

The perfect tour for runners who want run among historical buildings, parks and the best views over the fortress of Luxembourg City.

Your run starts at the Monument of Remembrance, named "Gëlle Fra". Running over the “New Bridge” to the exclusive residential area, you will pass the “Villa Pauly”; headquarter of the “Gestapo” in WWII.

Then your running tour takes you to the “Place des Martyrs” known as the Rose Garden. Running along the former headquarter of the steel company Arcelor Mittal to the “Old Bridge”, where you will have your first amazing view of a part of the fortress of Luxembourg.

The running tour guides you through the justice quarter to the Grand-Duchy Palace, where you will have more than one perfect spot for taking great pictures of Luxembourg City.

Next up is the absolute the highlight of this tour- an elevator with a part glass platform; you run a small part along one of the three ring walls and you will stop at the elevator, that connect uptown and the district of “Pfaffenthal” (downtown). Here you have an extraordinary view over the fortress valley and to the European district.

Next up is the central park, where you will enjoy one of the green parts of Luxembourg City by passing some significant villas situated in this park. We return to “Gëlle Fra” by running through the city center.
