Luxembourg City has countless fun activities and tourist attractions to offer, many of which are completely free of charge. Here are some of the best free activities that you can do in Luxembourg City:
Free cultural activities
With art on nearly every street corner, walking around Luxembourg City can feel like being in a giant open-air museum. Watch out for colourful street art by the Luxembourgish artist Sumo, keep your eyes peeled for the larger-than-life “Nana” sculpture by world-wide renowned French artist Niki de Saint-Phalle or take a selfie with the Melusina statue. Home to many free museums and cultural institutions, visitors can also get their culture fix without spending a dime. Visit the Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain, explore the permanent exhibitions at Musée Dräi Eechelen or Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art or discover the Muerbelsmillen. Some ticketed museums, such as the Mudam and the Lëtzebuerg City Museum, also have free entry times.
At the Kirchberg Plateau, you can admire contemporary architecture designed by award-winning star architects as well as the many works of art.
Luxembourg City has numerous walking trails that are the perfect opportunity to explore the city’s most popular tourist spots and hidden gems! Walk down the old town’s quaint cobbled streets, stroll along the picturesque Chemin de la Corniche, or take in the stunning view of the Grund district from the Bock Promontory. Head to the Luxembourg City Tourist Office and stock up on some of our brochures and leaflets that will help you navigate your way around the city!

Escape the buzz of the city and unwind in one of the many parks and green spaces that are just a short walk away from the city centre. Stroll along the Pétrusse valley, have a picnic on the “Kinnekswiss” in the municipal park or enjoy the stunning view from the “Dräi Eechelen” park. Make sure to also check out the impressive skatepark that is located in the Pétrusse valley, which is free all year round!
While Luxembourg City is best explored on foot, using public transport is also a great way to get around the city faster, easier and hassle-free. Plus it’s completely free of charge! A ride in the 71m high panoramic lift is also a must when visiting the capital. It offers sweeping views of the Pfaffenthal district and even features a glass-bottomed viewpoint - not for the faint hearted! The city’s only funicular is also just a short walk away from the panorama lift and will bring you up to the modern Kirchberg Plateau, the city’s financial hub!Public transport
