Description

Scenic Refreshment stops available
This several-day cycling tour in the eastern part of Luxembourg lives up to its name: it runs along the Moselle, Sauer, and Alzette rivers and offers excursions to Schengen and Vianden.

Wine is as integral to Luxembourg as the annual Hopping Procession is to Echternach. This foray into eastern Luxembourg takes us to the Moselle and through the heart of Luxembourg’s wine-growing region. The way is dotted with steep vineyards and small wine-growing villages that have retained the charm of bygone days. Detours to Schengen, where the Schengen Agreement that gradually abolished border checks was signed, and to the “Haff Réimech” nature reserve near Remerschen are absolutely worthwhile (+20 km). You will be cycling along the border to Germany, following the Moselle and Sauer rivers and should definitely plan to view the basilica in Echternach as well. An excursion to the impressive Vianden Castle is also possible (+20 km). The Alzette, the smallest of the three rivers along which you will be cycling, leads you back to the city of Luxembourg.

The tour can also be shortened. From Echternach, the national cycle path or “Piste cyclable” (PC2) runs via Consdorf and Junglinster to Luxembourg City. However, this section is more challenging due to the high elevation.
