Be the first to ride Luxembourg's new tram ahead of launch
Visitors to the "Neien Tramsschapp" (tram station) this weekend will have the chance to be the first passengers on Luxembourg City's new tram, just short of three months before its official launch.
The Neien Tramsschapp in Kirchberg, throws open its doors on September 23 and 24 for visitors to take a peek inside the brand new tram depot and central hub of the entire network.
During the "open days" the focus of the event will be based on the theme "mobility of tomorrow". Several well-known figures will be present for the occasion including CFL representatives and members of the Ministry of Infrastructure.
There will also be entertainment and concerts as part of the programme for both Saturday and Sunday, running from 10am to 6pm.
It should be noted that the area around the Neien Tramsschapp site at the far end of Kirchberg near the Serra roundabout will be closed to traffic. Visitors are therefore advised to use the free shuttle buses provided by the City for the occasion.
Although the tram station is open to all and turning up on the day possible, it is recommended to sign-up by filling in your details on the website. This may also help in getting a space on the tram, although this is not made clear on the website. Go to: luxtram.lu
