    Between Pfaffenthal and Oberstadt operates since 2016, a panoramic lift which connects the upper town with Pfaffenthal.
    In just 30 seconds you overcome a height difference of 65 m.
    At the exit of the pedestrian bridge that connects the lift with the city park, you can see the sculpture "Passe-Muraille" by the artist Jean-Bernard Métais (* 1954).
    It is reminiscent of the former fortifications on site.
    An Indian chestnut tree grows near the bicycle track, planted in 1921, when the later Grand Duke Jean, the father of today's Grand Duke Henri, was born.
    The large building with neo-Gothic facade (1886) is a nursing home.
    It bears the name of its founder Jean-Pierre Pescatore, banker and tobacco producer. During the von Rundstedt offensive (1944/1945), General George S. Patton (1885-1945), commander of the 3rd US Army had set up his "headquarters" here.
    In the chapel of the foundation prayed Patton for best meteorological conditions, in order to be able to lead the Ardennes battle.
    A pillar of the fence of the Foundation Pescatore carries a small roof.
    It reveals that here is the ventilation of the former Réduit Fort Berlaimont and its casemates.
    The bike path leads to the monument of Robert Schuman, the founding father of Europe.
    He was born in Clausen in 1886.
    The monument designed by architect Robert Lentz was inaugurated on October 24, 1966.
    The inscription shows an excerpt from the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950: "Europe can not be established in one go, nor by a simple summary. It will emerge from concrete facts that first create a solidarity of action. "
    Opposite the monument is Luxembourg's "Great Playhouse".
    It was inaugurated on April 15, 1964.
    It is a work of the French architect Alain Bourbonnais.
