If I had to choose, this would probably be my favorite of the official Lux routes. High single-track ratio and some fun yet technical descents make this a must do ride. Unique terrain as well. Not for the beginner due to some of the steeper descents. Skatepark and dirt slopestyle jumps are only a 2 minute ride from the parking lot as well.

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.
