If you're near Place d'Armes on Friday or Saturday, you can catch a glimpse of all the new tourist activities the Grand Duchy has to offer!

Minister for Tourism Lex Delles (DP), Luxembourg City mayor Lydie Polfer (DP) and president of the LCTO (Luxembourg City Tourist Office) and municipal councillor Marc Angel launched the new "Explore Luxembourg" campaign on Friday morning.

All three politicians stressed that not only tourists, but also Luxembourg natives will be able to make new discoveries now.

One possibility is to go visit the Pétrusse Casemates, which have been closed but are due to open in the summer. Polfer confirmed that the authorities had invested a lot of money into the Pétrusse Casemates.

Delles explained that cycling paths are also being expanded across the country, all linked to various tourist attracts. With many interesting hiking and cycling opportunities, the Ministry for Tourism is continuing to work on promoting so-called "active tourism".

Additionally, the UNESCO Bike Tour was launched this afternoon, allowing residents and tourists to discover the Grand Duchy's heritage by bike. In the spirit of promoting this ten-kilometre route through Claussen and Pfaffenthal and along the Pétrusse valley, the Minister for Culture, Sam Tanson, and the Minister for Tourism, Lex Delles, took to their bikes. This cycle tour showcases the criteria which led to Luxembourg being added to the World Heritage Register and is intended to complement the “UNESCO Walk” of the Upper City that was published in 2018.
