A must see in Luxembourg City. Take photos of this beautiful arched bridge. It is very photogenic from the city and from the lovely park underneath.

“Beautiful Bridge- Lovely Scenic Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were walking around Luxembourg City and took lots of lovely photographs of this bridge that dates back to 1900. It's a wonderful, pleasing to the eye arched bridge and the views to it and from it are breathtaking. We walked across it to the other side and really enjoyed the area.

“Symbol of Luxembourg.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

A beautiful "arch" bridge, it took three years to built from 1900 to 1903.
Jointly designed by a Frenchman & Luxembourger, it has become one of
the main attractions of the city. It is 138ft high and spans 502ft.
The bridge was named after Grand Duke Adolphe who was the first
monarch to hold the title. It is quite impressive when you take a walk
under it.

“What Efforts and Engineering!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I had to walk over the bridge to get to the old city. It was only on my return (from a different route) did I realize how spectacular it was. Its age, beauty and usefulness is a tribute to the builders. Take a peak underneath from the park if you have a chance.

“Amazing Arch Span.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Considering when the bridge was built, the engineering is amazing. The supporting arch s huge - you need to walk under the bridge to appreciate this.
