The secret places project is now in its fourth season.
The aim of the project is to help young people (aged 12 to 26) find out more about Luxembourg City through tours of various unusual attractions.
To join one of these tours, please contact the City of Luxembourg's Service Jeunesse (Youth Department) to sign up. Tour groups will be formed on a first-come, first-served basis. Tours are scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks and are completely free of charge.
The tours generally take place on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons, but a certain degree of flexibility is required, as days and times may change depending on the type of activities planned, as well as the availability and requirements of the sites.
Tour length varies between 1 and 2.5 hours. The duration of each tour will be communicated in advance.

Examples of tour sites
Most of the tour sites are well-known, but are usually closed to the general public. The tours provide a unique opportunity for participants to discover what goes on behind the scenes.
Below are a few examples:
- Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the main features of our cityscape. We've all heard the cathedral's bells, but how many have climbed the stairs of the bell tower and actually touched them?
- Kockelscheuer Ice Rink: Everyone has been there at least once, but do you know how the ice is made?
- Muhlenbach caves: Who is brave enough to enter these 50,000-year-old caves? Accompanied by an experienced guide from the Luxembourg Caving Group, participants will discover the deepest, darkest secrets of this small but impressive cave.
