We went through this tunnel at 1pm and there were no lights or music but when we came back at 6pm everything was fully functioning. It was a great short cut ...outside a sign said 25 ,mins to cycle through but we did it in 8 mins at a reasonable pace. The lights & music were nice to see but... More

What should basically be just a very long tunnel, actually turns out pretty interesting with all the light exibitions and the music. But it's better to do it by bike, cause its pretty long and become monotonous at some point!

Such fun and what a novelty! Riding through a tunnel while being entertained by light and sound shows. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next day to catch a different show.

I haven't found it when first time in Lyon. When second time, we've found it on our way back from the park with Zoo (cool as well). And it's incredible! We did cycling three times to enjoy! I love cycling but not my friend. And even he was fascinated. Installations, sounds, videos, lights, even smells - wow! I highly recomend... More

This was quite a pleasant, clean tunnel, but no lightshows or projections or sounds or anything... we didn't see anything beforehand saying it was only 'active' at certain times of the day, but a local helping us with directions did say she thought it was only evenings. Given that we were there in the morning and it was perfectly uneventful,... More

Great to visit such a bike-friendly city! TheTube is a cool way to travel a couple of km. on your bike or on foot without worrying about vehicular traffic and the daily (?) changing scenes on the walls make it a novelty. Would be great to have even more sound and visual effects, but overall, a wonderful addition to Lyon's... More

We went throught the tunnel in May 2015 on a city tour bike, or "velo" as they call it in France. I think it is the best way to enjoy the tunnel, as it is quite long, I think 2.2 km, on foot it might get long and a bit boring. Because the slides projected on the tunnel ceiling, after... More

This was such a fun walk!! It was a hot day when we went but it is definitely worth the walk. I haven't seen anything like it before and really enjoyed myself.

Lyon keeps many wonderful secrets, but surely this one is the best kept. I only learned about it recently, after living here a month, when a friend casually mentioned the light show in the tunnel dug straight throughout the Croix Rousse hill. Since Lyon is famous for it's December Festival of Lights, there are many brilliant local light artists who... More
