Description

The tour is accessible from 31 July to 29 August and leads through the valley of the Sauer as well as along the Moselle. From Wasserbillig, the tour leads across the open plateau.

After starting the tour in Wasserbillig, you first cycle along the Moselle and then up the hill to the village of Münschecker. From there you cycle to Manternach, which also has a train station, and you then continue on to Berbourg. Shortly after Bech, you join the PC2 national cycle path and ride to Wolpert. You pass through a tunnel under the N11 road. From Wolpert, you cycle to Consdorf and Scheidgen. From here, you cycle leisurely down into the valley to Echternach, where a visit to the medieval town centre is recommended. The route continues along the Sûre river. You pass through some picturesque villages here and then cycle through Moersdorf. From a tourist point of view, all these villages belong to the Mullerthal region – Luxembourg’s “Little Switzerland”. You cycle along the PC3 national cycle path, enjoying views of the Sûre valley. After Moersdorf, you enter the Moselle region, known for its wine, vineyards and beautiful villages.
