Description

Refreshment stops available

The Attert cycle route (PC 12) starts off at Pétange, and follows the tracks of the old Attert line, the railway branch that used to connect Pétange and Ettelbruck.

The Attert cycle route is the perfect course for family expeditions. This exciting group adventure starts off at Pétange, and then for most of the journey it follows the tracks of the old Attert line, the railway branch that used to connect Pétange and Ettelbruck.

Now you literally ride on the border between Belgium and Luxembourg. Soon the tour adventure takes a new turn. Follow the tracks of the famous Charly, an old, narrow-gauge railway line heading in the direction of the sept châteaux (seven castles). Now intrepid cyclists pass through a valley of mighty fortresses and castles – this is where the nobles of old used to build their strongholds, such as the château-fort de Hollenfels (Hollenfels stronghold), or the baroque château d’Ansembourg.

Further on, things take a surprising and interesting turn as you encounter another mighty man-made construction - a 700 metre-long lit tunnel through the Luxembourg sandstone.
