Inauguration of the tramway and the Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg funicular

05 December

Tramway

Travelling by tram is not something new for the people of Luxembourg City, as the “Tram” had already been in operation in the city between 1875 and 1964. The new tramway for 2017 is designed to make mobility more efficient and more convenient.

The first section links the administrative and banking district Kirchberg to the Ville-Haute. The new Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg Railway Station serves as a transfer hub connecting the trains from the north, south and west with the tramway.

Passengers are transported from Pfaffenthal to Kirchberg on the new funicular, which is capable of tackling the 40 m height difference in less than 4 minutes. 


Price of the stamp „Tramway“: 0,70 €
Layout: Fargo (L)
Pics: Luxtram
Printing: Multicolored high-resolution offset by Bpost (B)
Dimensions: 60x30 mm, 10 stamps per sheet
