Excellent route that circles the beautiful town of Larochette, with some steep climbs, big pine forests, and great views of the ancient castle overlooking the town. Very popular tourist town, so plenty of food options for post ride grub.

All 33 of the official Luxembourg mountain bike routes are extremely well-signed, using a white square with stacked purple dots and a purple triangle pointing in the direction of travel. Occasionally a sign may have been removed due to logging or farming, or in a couple cases intentionally turned to point the wrong way. While this is very rare, it’s a good idea to keep your smartphone and a copy of the GPS track with you on all rides.

Most routes are a mix of paved roads, forest and farming dirt roads, and the odd bit of single track. Very few are technically that challenging, so distance and climbing totals are often the most accurate way of judging their difficulty. Parking for most of the routes is at free parking lots located in most small towns in Luxembourg. Cafe’s for post ride food and beers are often not far away as well.
