Visiting hidden treasures underground
On Saturday, 30 September 2017, members of Lions Club Erasmus met for a private guided tour of the Raschpetzer in Walferdange; one of the treasures that can be found around the city of Luxembourg.
Aqueduct collects drinking water
The Raschpetzer is an impressive underground aqueduct built by the Romans to collect drinking water from the hills and transport it to their villa in the valley. Today, visitors can discover a series of illuminated shafts used to build the aqueduct, the deepest of which is 36 m deep, and can see the water running, as it did more than 1800 years ago. The drizzle that had started during our visit created a very special atmosphere in the forest and contributed to making the visit a magical moment.
