We rode across this bridge every day on the bus and walked it and I had no idea it was significant until after we had left the city (Luxembourg City has a lot of stone bridges). So my only advice is to realize it's significant...More

The Pont Adolphe bridges the gorge made by the Petreus River, when at full force, it cut through the sandstone cliffs. Now it is the Upper (Haute) area of the City. The Lower area - leading to the Grund, is a botanical wonderland of formal...More

It seems the reviews for the 2 main bridges in Luxembourg are getting a little mixed. Just to help make a very clear difference, this bridge, Pont Adolphe does not have train tracks, the other "main attraction" bridge is Viaduc (Passerelle) which does have train...More

Pont Adolphe is easy to reach within Luxembourg city, so why not swing by? It's a perfect spot from which to enjoy Luxembourg's signature topography. Be sure to bundle up if the forecast is chilly, though — the wind can bring an extra nip with...More

Not sure why this bridge is so exciting (probably an institution for locals). It is an interesting structure but nothing that exceptional that cannot be seen elsewehere in Europe.

Just next to the Gelle Fre monument so another centrally located spot. Again, perfect view over the Petrusse valley from here. Cross the bridge for Gare (main bus location) and the museum of banking.

I still can't get over the scale of ancient stone fortification in this city. I recommend standing at the mid-point of the bridge near Pont Adolphe, and just taking it all in. Amazing!
