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.
When I Went To Luxembourg
28th - 30th April 2011
Where I Went
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.
Luxembourg's Road Quality
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.
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.
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.
