Description

From the capital through the modern Kirchberg district to the Mullerthal region with its spectacular cliffs - on the old railway line of the narrow-gauge railway ‘Charly’!

ATTENTION! The PC 2 is redirected at several points. The diversions are signposted on site.

They say that two is twice the fun. And this is certainly the case with the Echternach cycle route! The story starts in the country’s capital, the city of Luxembourg. A couple of wheel turns later you’re already at the iconic Pont Rouge. As you cross the bridge, cast your eyes over the magnificent view of the Alzette Valley and the old town, with its UNESCO World Heritage fortifications.

The next area you pass through is Kirchberg, a district peppered with European institutions and a rare delight for lovers of contemporary architecture.

Upon leaving the capital, however, there’s a twist in the story – a sudden change in scenery. At once you find yourself in the heart of Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, an area characterized by its landscape of dense forests and spectacular rock formations sculpted by the forces of erosion.

The tour ends at Echternach, which is regarded as the historical and cultural capital of the region. Take a moment to discover its abbey, Roman villa, ramparts and narrow alleyways, which lend the town much of its charm and medieval allure.
