Railway station to station paths

Explore Luxembourg’s towns, villages and countryside on foot or bicycle using the CFL “1000 km Lëtzebuerg” guide as a reliable companion to plan your hike or bike tour. You don’t have to pay extra to use the buses and trains with the Luxembourg Card tourist passport, so you can leave your car behind. Individuals or groups as large as five can use the card for one, two or three separate days during the current year. Beside public transport, the Luxembourg Card offers free or cut-price access to more than 70 attractions.

What kind of hiker or cyclist are you? Whether you like to push yourself up hills and over long distances, or you prefer a relaxed tour around historic and cultural sites, Luxembourg has what you’re looking for. From the valleys and plateaux of the Ardennes in the north, the rolling hills of the central Guttland, the sunny slopes of the Moselle vineyards, and the contours of the southern Terres Rouges, each region offers exercise and interest for all.

You’ll be surprised at the discoveries you’ll make. Castles such as those at Bourscheid and Schuttbourg are impressive and mysterious. The shell of a crashed World War II aeroplane in the forest near Maulusmühle stirs the emotions. The steep hills around Kautenbach and Goebelsmuhle will live long in the memory, as will the art near Rumelange inspired by the country’s steel industry heritage. Many of the trails that take in these delights have received international awards. For example, the “Escapardenne Eislek Trail” is one of the “Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe”. The “Manternacher Fiels” train-hiking path has been certified as one of the most attractive, high quality, and well designed by the German hiking institute. It features no fewer than 90 unusual sites.

Whether you prefer to plan your day or to be spontaneous, the Luxembourg Card mobile app is for you. It has many features, including a tool for estimating at what time your hike will reach your planned bus stop or railway station, and coordinating this with the different transport timetables.

The "1000 km Lëtzebuerg" folder will be your reliable companion for planning a route and following the trails. Dedicated cycling and hiking routes linked to train stations are described in detail in English, French and German on each of the 43 map/information sheets. Paths can be followed in any direction, and are way-marked with the CFL logo. Maps are either at 1:20,000 or 1:50,000 scale, with the location of stations and attractions indicated clearly with image boxes. They also detail the length and elevation of the route, and the related degree of difficulty. The folder also comes with a handy cover to protect the sheets from wear and tear.

There are 14 specific station-to-station cycle itineraries, and they can be combined to make longer trips. You can take you bike on trains and buses. Equipped with detailed local maps to 1:100,000 scale and a plan of the national cycle path network, you have what you need to organise special days in the countryside.

The CFL “1000 km Lëtzebuerg” guide is on sale for €29 in tourist offices, bookshops, several stations and in many newsagents.
