Luxembourg is a very beautiful country that offers great opportunities for cycling alone, with friends or with the family. While cycling, you can admire the fields ready to harvest in summer, the pretty colours of the forests in autumn, enjoy the fresh air of spring,…
Mountain bike enthusiasts can explore the forests and other natural areas. As road cyclists, many cycle paths are available for the comfort of all.
Bicycle paths on the Luxembourg territory
Luxembourg proposes lots of bicycle paths, be it inside or outside the city. The national network is composed of nearly 950km of paths, of which 660km are actually completed. They are all reported on the Ponts et Chaussées website.
The Luxembourg by Cycle map is very useful and provides you with heaps of information. It gives you the paths’ characteristics, their length, the drops, or where to rent a bike. You will also find information about the CFL rail network so that you can combine bicycle and train during your journey. The explanations are in French, German and English. In order to buy it, please visit lvi.lu.
The site luxvelo.lu/ lists the cycle paths in Luxembourg, as well as ideas for bike rides in Luxembourg or further afield to Belgium, France or Germany.
Cycling trails from train station to train station
Take the opportunity to roam the country by taking the different bike paths that lead from train station to train station. Most of those tours are part of the national network and accessible to anyone. They are particularly recommended for family excursions; the paths are often even and once arrived at the station, you can head back by train.
Bike rides in Guttland
Situated in the centre and west of the country, the Guttland offers beautiful landscapes. You can ride along the Attert cycle path, which follows an old railway line along the border with Belgium.
The Alzette Valley is also a great idea for a walk, especially with children. From Luxembourg you can walk along the Vallée de l’Alzette from Grund’s district to Hespérange.
Rides along the Moselle, the Sûre or the Our river
You can also visit the nice Moselle region and its vineyards, Sûre or Our National Parks during one or several days. Spend the night in one of the comfortable and moderns youth hostels of Remerschen, Echternach, Vianden, Larochette or Luxembourg. Packages are often proposed.
The Red Lands
In the south of Luxembourg, the Terres Rouges offer an astonishing panorama, witnessing Luxembourg’s mining past. Mountain bike enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the more than 160 km of cycling offered by the RedRock Moutian Bike Trails.
