Ahoy, matey! The City's model sailboats will return to the P...
Many spaces in the capital have been converted into pedestrian zones:
- the city centre (Place d'Armes and Grand-Rue with their adjacent streets, Place Guillaume II, Rue de la Reine and part of Rue du Marché-aux-Herbes),
- the old town (Rue du Nord, Rue du Palais de Justice, Rue de la Monnaie, Rue Wiltheim and Rue de la Loge),
- Place de Paris (east side) and Rue Sainte Zithe (along the hospital and retirement complex) in the Gare district and
- Bisserweg (from 20:00 to 6:00 the next day).
In these zones, pedestrians can use the entire width of the public road. Generally, vehicle traffic and parking are prohibited in these areas. Cyclists are, however, allowed to use certain pedestrian zones.
Vehicles using Rue du Fossé may pass through the pedestrian zones at Rue de la Reine and Rue du Curé at any time, provided they stop before crossing and give pedestrians the right of way.
