Luxembourg City's Skyliner to stay extra two weeks

Luxembourg's 81m high Skyliner which offers a panoramic view over the capital will stay for two extra weeks.

Initially due to be dismantled next week, the tower on Place de Constitution in Luxembourg City will now remain open until August 20.

Up to 60 visitors can travel in the Skyliner at the same time and after reaching the top, the glass cabins give a 360° view.

Weighing more than 40 tonnes, it took 13 lorries to move the tower to the foot of the Gëlle Fra.

The Skyliner is open from 11am until 9pm Sunday to Thursday and from 11am until 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Entry costs €7 for adults, €4 for children aged between four and 12 and is free for children under four years. Tickets are available from the booth at the bottom of the Skyliner.
