Just a few steps from the paved city center this lift takes you to another era, to a picturesque village with amazing views, perfect for a walk on a day with good weather conditions!

Very nice elevator that brings you from the Paffendal area to the upper city. You have a nice overview of the area below as you can see everything through the glasses. The park that you arrive in at the top is also quite good

This “lift” is a great little thing to do. We walked down the hill to get to the bottom of the lift shaft, and then took the glass fronted lift to the top. You really do get an impressive view as it goes up and...More

The lift is pretty cool. Great view and big enough for a crowd. The walkway at the top has a small glass floor but it is so scratched that you can't see a lot when you stand on it.

This is a free and fun thing to do while in the city, a little hard to get there by car in the Pfaffenthal area but you can also get there from above. Quick lift and worth 10 minutes of your time!

This lift is free and we rode it down and then back up. You can get an aerial view of Luxembourg. To get to the upper part of the lift, you have to walk through a Park.

It takes mere seconds to go from top to bottom and while the views are great it is not hard to find great views elsewhere not Luxembourg. So they’re the reasons to maybe not bother if you’re pushed for time. But it’s free, you can...More
