Race bike tours in Luxembourg
Mountain bikers are not the only ones to find their heart’s desire in Luxembourg. Those who prefer road and tour biking are also spoilt with an impressive array of cycle paths and circuits. The Mullerthal Region - also known as Luxembourg's Little Switzerland - is a true paradise for cyclists. Its lush nature, hilly terrain and well-kept roads with little traffic are ideal for cycling hikes and excursions. There are circuits suitable for all levels, including those used by professional cyclists during their training sessions.
The many routes available will lead you past impressive rock formations as well as through peaceful valleys, but also past interesting cultural sites such as Echternach, the oldest city in Luxembourg, or castle ruins like those of Beaufort and Larochette. Everything is laid out in such a way that you can devise your very own 'Tour de Luxembourg', adapted to your desires and skills.
The most competitive and fit riders will opt for circuits like the Mullerthal X-treme, with its very demanding uphill and downhill slopes, or the Charly Gaul - a route that each year hosts a renowned cycling race of the same name, with more than 1,000 enthusiasts taking part. In the Luxembourg Moselle region, another great cyclo-sport event awaits: the Schleck Gran Fondo, a UCI-certified mass race open to licensed and non-licensed cyclists, which starts in Mondorf-les-bains.
