News around the Upper Sûre Lake!
The Upper Sûre Lake is not only Luxembourg's largest drinking water reservoir, but during the summer months it is also known beyond the country's borders as a bathing and hiking paradise.
For this year's season, the Upper Sûre Nature Park shares some very pleasant news. Since the sanitary situation has eased, there will no longer be a reservation requirement for the 2022 season.
The Upper Sûre Nature Park advises all visitors to plan their journey as environmentally as possible. There are several ways to get there by bus, depending on which direction you are coming from: e.g. line 131 Ettelbruck-Arsdorf, 121 Wiltz-Boulaide or 148 Wiltz-Liefrange.
In addition, the Upper Sûre shuttle (“Stauséi Navette” - line 155) runs free of charge around the lake every hour. It also connects well with the local hiking trails, such as the "Circuit du Lac". If you can't do the 40 km around the lake in one day, you can divide it into stages and return to your starting point with the Upper Sûre shuttle.
For those arriving by car, free parking is available in Insenborn and Lultzhausen. The car parks "Am Kéilert" (700 parking spaces) and "Kräizfeld" (250 parking spaces) are located directly on the N27 near Insenborn and Lultzhausen. The access to the two car parking areas is signposted. Enjoy a walk of 10 to 20 minutes to the lake. Alternatively, the municipality of Esch-sur-Sûre offers a shuttle service called “Plage-Bus” on fair-weather weekends and public holidays. This takes visitors comfortably from the car park areas to the beaches “Fuussefeld”, “Frounbierg” and Lultzhausen every 20 minutes. The residents will be grateful.
The parking spaces in the direct vicinity of the beaches in Lultzhausen and Insenborn have a parking fee of 3 euros per hour. Both car parks have been equipped with an electronic barrier. At the moment, due to a delayed delivery, it is only possible to pay with cash. Residents of the municipality of Esch-sur-Sûre are entitled to a free parking card. This is available on request from the municipality. Fishermen and divers can obtain a reduced parking card on request, which costs 75 euros per season.
