Lakes and Rivers, Parks and Gardens
Think Luxembourg doesn’t have any beaches? Think again! There are fantastic spots for sailing, kayaking and water-skiing. With its big lakes and its rivers, Luxembourg is the perfect place for people who love swimming and other water sports.
There’s lots to do around Lake Haute-Sûre, Lake Echternach and the Remerschen lakes. Sport lovers can get stuck into numerous water sports, families can use pedalos and swimming areas, anglers can give their passion free rein, food lovers can enjoy a good meal with their feet (almost) in the water and those wanting to explore can embark on a river cruise. With so much choice, there’s something for everyone.
Luxembourg is criss-crossed with lakes, rivers and wild waterfalls, each of which offers numerous leisure possibilities, as well as their natural beauty.
As for the country’s gardens and parks, they’re worth a detour too. There’s no better place for a picnic, for instance. Whether on public or private land, they are open to the public and are perfect for sport, games or simply relaxing. If you take a stroll in a park or garden, you will be just as likely to find unexpected botanical collections – did you know that Luxembourg used to be world renowned for rose cultivation? – as you are to encounter open-air exhibitions, sculptures, panoramic views of Luxembourg City, or facilities for playing sports and other games. In some, you might even find a castle or pirate ship – top-notch playgrounds for the kids!
