On the Move

The Passerelle was built between 1859 and 1861 to connect the city centre with Luxembourg's new railway station, which was located away from the city centre so as to not detract from the defensive capabilities of the city's fortress.

It was conceived by the engineers Edouard Grenier and Auguste Letellier.

It is 290m long, with 24 arches, and 45m above the valley floor.
