Petrusse Valley is a Local Favourite in Luxembourg; it is the city’s heart and provides a range of free activities and spots.

Starting with Rue d’Anvers, there is a very well-designed outdoor fitness park, fenced soccer/basketball play area, and climbing playground for kids.

You will come across the spectacular Adolphe Bridge toward the Grund district.

This bridge is stunning and has a cycle/pedestrian bridge suspended just under it, providing an excellent platform to take in the valley landscape and score some beautiful pictures.

Lastly, once almost at The Grund in the northeast end, there is the Skatepark Péitruss. It is large and offers skaters many opportunities to test their skills. It is busy, but users are polite.

Another free activity and spot is The Bonnevoie trail. It is perhaps so well hidden that you might just stumble upon it and forget you are still in Luxembourg Ville!

You will be mesmerized by how the city disappears because you will get engulfed by the luscious trees, the art, and the history as the Alzette River winds past you.
