If you want to take more of an active break, Luxembourg offers you the world’s densest network of both hiking and cycling paths, more tennis courts than you can throw a ball at, and more fitness centres than you thought would fit into this stamp-sized country.
The area around Echternach -known as “Luxembourg’s little Switzerland”- is an Eldorado for hikers, with hundreds of mostly circular walking paths leading you through the area’s vast forests and past curious sandstone formations.
If golf is your thing, then we have five 18-hole courses to offer you, none at more than an hour’s drive from the capital.
Fancy some watersports? Then aim for the lake of the Upper-Sûre, near the medieval market town of Esch-sur-Sûre, where you can swim, sail, fish, scuba-dive or simply lie on the grassy beaches and use one of the many barbecues installed here.
Mondorf-les-Bains in the south-eastern corner of the country is Luxembourg’s only spa, and features also Luxembourg’s only casino, as well as a gorgeous spa garden.
Take a ride in a Hot-air balloon (Luxembourg often holds the ballooning world championships), have a go on quad bikes, kayak down the river Sûre, ride the waves behind a motorboat, or test your skills at a rope garden … the sky’s the limit, and Luxembourg offers it all..
We hope that this page will have whetted your appetite to take a short break to Luxembourg, and would like to be of further service to you, if we can.
