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. 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 Lusembourg’s inhabitants.
The green parks of Pétrusse 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 also serves as a setting for the famous Duck Race that takes place every year in Luxembourg, with thousands of ducks coming down the Petrusse river! For the more athletic, you can also discover it by running the DKV Urban Trail. Also enjoy the outdoor fitness area and the skate park.
