Petrusse Valley is a local favorite in Luxembourg; it is the heart of the city and offers a range of free activities and places.

Starting at rue d’Anvers there is a very well designed outdoor fitness park, a fenced football/basketball playground and a climbing playground for children.

You will cross the spectacular Adolphe bridge towards the Grund district.

This bridge is beautiful and has a suspended cycle/pedestrian bridge just below, providing a great platform to take in the valley scenery and take some great photos.

Finally, once almost at the Grund at the northeast end, there is the Skatepark Péitruss. It is large and offers skaters plenty of opportunities to test their skills. It’s busy, but users are polite.

Another free activity and spot is the Bonnevoie trail. It is perhaps so well hidden that you could stumble upon it and forget that you are still in Luxembourg City!

You’ll be mesmerized by how the city disappears as you’ll be engulfed in lush trees, art and history as the Alzette River meanders past you.

If the noises of the city have you wishing for some peace, then maybe getting lost in a book will help you regain your strength and take on more urban adventures.
