The green parks of the Pétrusse Valley offer very nice walks, easy and very pleasant to do both on foot and by bike. It is an ideal place for jogging. In summer we will appreciate the peaceful aspect and the freshness of its trails.
The Pétrusse valley, located under the Adolphe bridge in Luxembourg City, separates the Upper City from the Bourbon plateau. Accessible by stairs or via the Saint Esprit lift, this valley has been landscaped into parks and makes the delight of Luxembourg’s inhabitants.
The little Petrusse river originates from Mamer in Luxembourg and is a tributary of the Alzette at the level of the City of Luxembourg in the district of Grund.
On the Grund’s side, take advantage of the mini golf, miniature train for the little ones and outdoor fitness area, as well as Skate Park; on the Hollerich’s side, a public basketball court is at your disposal.
The Pétrusse Valley also accomodates every year the famous Luxembourg Duck Race, with thousands of ducks swimming down the Petrusse river! For the more athletic ones, you can also discover it by running the DKV Urban Trail.
A large project to transform the Petrusse Valley will allow this extraordinary place in the heart of the capital to look more wild and green. This ecological redevelopment will begin at the end of 2019 and will be completed in 2 phases for the beginning of the LUGA 2023 and 2024 horticultural exhibition.
