Luxembourg is a unique cycling destination due to its compact size and varied terrain. Situated in the heart of Europe, the Duchy of Luxembourg boasts a wealth of diverse terrain, well-maintained cycle paths and a rich history that makes a cycling holiday here one for everyone.
There is so much to enjoy on the bike in Luxembourg from the challenging slopes of the Ardennes or the flatter routes along the Moselle Cycle Path in the east. Luxembourg City, the country’s capital, is a cyclist’s dream with an extensive network of cycle lanes throughout the country.
You’ll be able to enjoy the UNESCO-listed old town, ride along the scenic banks of the Alzette and Petrusse rivers and enjoy panoramic views of the city from the impressive viaducts.
Steven went on a Visit Luxembourg tourist office to experience different types of cycling in Luxembourg and you can read about his experiences in his blog post - Cycling around Luxembourg.
The Moselle Cycle Path is a cross-border cycle route that winds through the picturesque landscapes of Luxembourg. Stretching from the charming town of Schengen in the south to Wasserbillig in the north, you'll see the rolling vineyards, quaint villages and magnificent castles perched on hilltops.
The region is famous for its high-quality wines, particularly the Moselle Rieslings. You'll be able to stop off and same a few glasses along the way. Don't forget to visit Schengen which played a significant role in the development of the European Union before heading into neighbouring Germany to continue the tour.
If you are seeking an active exploration of Luxembourg and a cycling holiday that is suitable for all cycling abilities, then the Moselle Cycle Path offers exactly that!
