The tour is accessible from 31 July to 29 August and leads up the old Jangelisbunn railway from Remich to Mondorf, continuing along the “Neelchesbirenallee” to the Maus Kätti statue in Burmerange. It offers a magnificent view over the Moselle valley.
From the starting point in Remich, go past the football pitch along avenue Lamort-Velter to rue de la Gare, past the church in the direction of Jangelisbunn, up through the forest (along the PC7, a tarred path) to Ellange-Gare, part of the former narrow-gauge railway line between Luxembourg City and Remich from 1882 to 1955. Behind the “Triangle Vert” industrial estate, there’s a magnificent view of the thermal resort of Mondorf-les-Bains. The thermal baths, the aviation museum and an easy golf course in the thermal park are just some of the highlights. Continue along the “Neelchesbirenallee” and past the Maus Kätti statue in Bürmeringen, and you soon enjoy a magnificent view over the Moselle valley with the Biodiversum Nature Conservation Centre and its “Haff Réimech” reserve.
Across the way are the “Baggerweier” lakes, which attract numerous water rats every year. Through the vineyards and charming little villages, past the Valentiny Foundation (a must for art lovers) and the “A Possen” museum with its folklore, toys and history of wine, you return to the Moselle and cycle back to the starting point in Remich.
Visit the Biodiversum nature conservation centre in Remerschen and enjoy a glass of crémant or wine at one of the winegrowers on the route.
Even if you are travelling on roads with reduced traffic, please follow the traffic regulations and bear in mind that residents and farmers may cross your path.
Pay attention at the roundabout in Ellange-Gare.

Along the “Vëlosummer” routes, cyclists can collect stickers and win great prizes. When you buy something, have a drink, eat or pay admission at one of the participating businesses, you receive a sticker. You can stick these on a collection card in the handy postcard format (available in the participating businesses). Once you’ve collected five stickers, you can enter the competition by sending in the card.
We recommend cyclists start in Remich and ride along the old Jangelisgunn railway (PC7, a tarred path) to the Mouse Kätti statue, in keeping with the name of the tour.
From the starting point, you cycle past the football pitch in Remich via avenue Lamort-Velter to rue de la Gare, past the parish church in the direction of Jangelisbunn (PC7, a tarred path), continuing through the forest up to Mondorf-les-Bains. The section from Janglisbunn was part of the narrow-gauge railway line between Luxembourg City and Remich from 1882 to 1955. Behind the “Triangle Vert” industrial estate, you can enjoy a view of the thermal resort of Mondorf-les-Bains, which attracts a million tourists every year. Some highlights are the thermal and fitness centre, the park, the casino, a large selection of restaurants and shops, as well as a wide range of leisure and sports activities.
Continue through the “Neelchesbirenallee”, which has been placed under special protection owing to its magnificence and historical interest, then past the mouse Kätti in Bürmeringen – the famous country mouse of the Mondorf writer Auguste Liesch.
Soon you enjoy a magnificent view over the Moselle valley with the Biodiversum nature conservation centre and its “Haff Réimech” reserve. Directly opposite are the “Baggerweier” lakes. A great destination for an excursion for all. Every year in spring and summer, the “Baggerweier” lakes in Remerschen attract numerous water rats and sun worshippers to its 25 hectare area. Fun in the water, sunbathing, walking – there are enough opportunities to spend a whole day here with family or friends.
The descent leads through the vineyards and charming little villages to the Moselle, past the Valentiny Foundation (a must for art lovers), and the “A Possen” museum, which provides an introduction to folklore, toys and the history of wine.
You now cycle along the Moselle in the direction of Remich and can finish the tour relaxing on one of the numerous terraces.
