What if you wanted to try out water sports, diving and fishing in the lakes and rivers of Luxembourg?
Water sports in Luxembourg
Love water sports? Set sail for Luxembourg! Criss-crossed by lakes and rivers, the country couldn’t be better suited to water sports. Take a trip in a solar-powered boat or hire a pedalo for a peaceful excursion across tree-lined lakes and ponds. If you prefer something a bit more exciting, hop into a kayak or canoe to ride the white water of northern Luxembourg’s waterways.
The water of the Moselle is relatively warm and the river is fairly wide, so it offers perfect conditions for experienced water-sport lovers, whether you are a hardened adrenaline junkie or a complete novice heading out onto the water for the first time. This means that you can try your hand at various sports, such as water-skiing, jet-skiing, surfing or – the hipster’s choice – wakeboarding. In addition to beaches that are great for sun-bathing, the banks of Rosport Reservoir and Lake Esch-sur-Sûre offer great options for water sports, such as windsurfing, hilarious banana-boat rides and, more unexpectedly, diving.
To the delight of anglers, Luxembourg’s waterways are teeming with trout, pike, pikeperch, eels and carp. Anyone who loves fishing can devote hours to their passion on the banks of the country’s numerous fishponds, for example near Lake Esch-sur-Sûre. Alternatively, you can fish on the shores of Lake Echternach – rich in herbivorous and predator fish, it’s the perfect place for recreational and sport angling, throughout the year.
