Adolphe Bridge

A symbol of Luxembourg’s independence, this historic bridge is best known for its scenic views.

Adolphe Bridge is one of Luxembourg’s most recognizable attractions, making frequent appearances on the city’s postcards and tourism brochures. The bridge connects the Upper City to the Bourbon plateau. Walk across the structure to see picturesque views over the Petrusse Valley and the city.

Although this bridge is well over a century old, you may still hear locals refer to it as Néi Bréck (New Bridge) because it replaced an older 19th-century bridge. Adolphe Bridge was said to be the largest stone arch bridge in the world when it was first constructed. Designed by French engineer Paul Séjourné, the bridge stretches 500 feet (150 meters) across the Petrusse Valley and stands 140 feet (42 meters) tall at its highest point. 

The bridge is closed for extensive renovations, which are expected to be completed in 2016. It’s possible to walk across the temporary replacement bridge next to the Adolphe Bridge. Try to spot the Monument of Remembrance, Place de la Constitution, Notre-Dame Cathedral and other popular attractions in the distance. 

Walk to nearby Boulevard Roosevelt and check out the pavilion dedicated to the bridge’s renovation. Stones will be removed from the bridge for cleaning and a new iron support system will strengthen the existing design. The refurbished Adolphe Bridge will be widened by 59 inches (150 centimeters) on each side, to better accommodate cars, buses, trams and pedestrians. 

Follow one of the paths leading below the bridge to pretty Petrusse Valley Park. This beautifully manicured park is particularly lovely in the spring when the magnolias are in bloom. 

For a special treat, visit the bridge during the city’s National Day celebrations in June. Commemorating the Grand Duke's official birthday, the event includes a stunning firework display and live music. 

The Adolphe Bridge is located in the city’s Ville Haute, linking Boulevard Royal to Avenue de la Liberté. It’s within walking distance of Place de la Constitution, one of Luxembourg’s central squares.
