Luxembourg is opening two unique tourist routes this weekend as a part of the Velosummer 2022. Cyclists can travel the roads of the Grand Duchy, enjoy the scenic landscapes and see the historical sights without any interference. Because for their convenience, during July 30-31, these routes will be closed for cars and motorcycles.
The first and easier of the routes, Uewersauer, lies in the northwest. From Goebelsmühle railway station to Lultzhausen. Its length is about 19 kilometers. The path passes by the Esch-Sauer Castle and the Lultzhausen reservoir.
On the way, cyclists can take a guided tour or swim in a lake. And if you need food and drink, kiosks are open at the Goebelsmühle station. As well as in the communes of Teifelslee, Esch-Sauer and Lultzhausen. This route is suitable for the whole family.
The Dräi-Däller-Tour, however, is designed for the more hardy traveler. This circular route in the northeast of the country starts and ends in Ettelbrück. Cyclists will travel a circle 55 kilometers long. The road partly runs along the border with Germany.
Excursions to the castle of Larochette and several museums are available. And you can also see the largest «mushroom» rock formation in Luxembourg.
The Velosummer website claims that the Dräi-Däller-Tour can be completed in just over 4 hours. But it is not necessary to rush: you can always eat and rest in Larochette or near Medernach.
As part of Velosummer 2022, four more routes opened yesterday. They will be available to Luxembourgers and tourists until the end of summer. Five additional routes will open on different August weekends. You can look at the map of routes and their opening dates on the Velosummer website.
