Cycling in Luxembourg

Luxembourg In A Nutshell

Rarely high on anyone's list of countries to see but if you're on a tour of eastern France it's worth popping over the border into Luxembourg if only to see the capital. The rural ride northwards to Belgium was also lovely.

Where and When I Went

28th - 30th April 2011

Luxembourg's Scenery

Despite sometimes being included as a Low Country, it isn't. Although the hills never get very high - the tallest is just over 400 metres - it seems to take a lot of effort to get around.

Scenery

Luxembourg's Road Quality

Excellent.

Luxembourg's Accommodation & Costs

My only accommodation was a cheap room above an Italian restaurant near the station in Luxembourg City that cost €45. I've no idea if that is representative of the country as a whole.

Language

Luxembourg is a tiny country and yet has three official languages: French, German and Luxembourgish. The owners of the room I stayed at spoke no English although I would imagine that this is the exception in such an international city.

Neighbouring Countries

Germany, France and Belgium.

Reasons To Go To Luxembourg

Pretty, rolling hills, a lovely capital without the tourist masses of others, a shop that sells nothing but Gummi Bears.
