Plütscheid Esch sur Sûre Wiltz en terug
Published: 15/11/2018
November 2018, beautiful autumn colors along the beautiful green Michelin roads.
We left from the hotel Gasthaus-Pension-Restaurant Geimer, affiliated with the Tourenfahrer group. A must, clean room and bathroom, good food, half board 48 euros ppn and garage for the motorbikes.

So start in the German Plütscheid, 40 km over the Belgian border in the Eifel.
Via a nice winding road in the direction of Krautscheid, through the German-Luxembourg Nature Park, we cross the water in Keppeshausen and we are immediately in Luxembourg. You pass Vianden, Diekirch, Esch-sur-Sûre (where you leave the green road through the diversion) towards Pont Misère with the beautiful views.
(Bridge of the misery ... Before this bridge was built, people and goods had to be transferred by a ferryman.) The legend tells of a horseman who wanted to cross the river and was killed, but less likely is the explanation that the people for of the bridge or the crossing by boat, had to wade through the water, in the cold, with horse and freight ...

Via Bavigne and Wiltz we return, we still stay on the beautiful green Michelin roads. We take some hairpin bends along in Krautenbach and drive past Rodershausen, belonging to the canton of Clervaux in Luxembourg. The canton of Clervaux (Luxembourg: Kanton Klierf) is the northernmost canton of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. In the north and west the canton borders on Belgium, in the east on Germany and in the south on the cantons of Wiltz, Diekirch and Vianden where we drove through earlier in the day. We return via the same beautiful winding road back to the German-Luxembourg Natural Park , direction hotel. 230 nice km's on your counter :-)

About this region
Luxembourg ( (listen); Luxembourgish: Lëtzebuerg [ˈlətsəbuə̯ɕ] (listen); French: Luxembourg; German: Luxemburg), officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a small landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south. Its capital, Luxembourg City, is one of the three official capitals of the European Union (together with Brussels and Strasbourg) and the seat of the European Court of Justice, the highest judicial authority in the EU. Its culture, people, and languages are highly intertwined with its neighbours, making it essentially a mixture of French and German cultures, as evident by the nation's three official languages: French, German, and the national language, Luxembourgish (sometimes considered a dialect of German). The repeated invasions by Germany, especially in World War II, resulted in the country's strong will for mediation between France and Germany and, among other things, led to the foundation of the European Union.With an area of 2,586 square kilometres (998 sq mi), it is one of the smallest sovereign states in Europe. In 2018, Luxembourg had a population of 602,005, which makes it one of the least-populous countries in Europe, but by far the one with the highest population growth rate. Foreigners account for nearly half of Luxembourg's population. As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarch, it is headed by Grand Duke Henri and is the world's only remaining grand duchy. Luxembourg is a developed country, with an advanced economy and one of the world's highest GDP (PPP) per capita. The City of Luxembourg with its old quarters and fortifications was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 due to the exceptional preservation of the vast fortifications and the old city.The history of Luxembourg is considered to begin in 963, when count Siegfried I acquired a rocky promontory and its Roman-era fortifications known as Lucilinburhuc, ′little castle′, and the surrounding area from the Imperial Abbey of St. Maximin in nearby Trier. Siegfried's descendants increased their territory through marriage, war and vassal relations. At the end of the 13th century, the Counts of Luxembourg reigned over a considerable territory. In 1308, Henry VII, Count of Luxembourg became King of the Germans and Holy Roman Emperor. The House of Luxembourg produced four Holy Roman Emperors during the high Middle Ages. In 1354, Charles IV elevated the County to the Duchy of Luxembourg. Since Sigismund had no male heir, the Duchy became part of the Burgundian Circle and then one of the Seventeen Provinces of the Habsburg Netherlands. Over the centuries, the City and Fortress of Luxembourg, of great strategic importance situated between the Kingdom of France and the Habsburg territories, was gradually built up to be one of the most reputed fortifications in Europe. After belonging to both the France of Louis XIV and the Austria of Maria Theresia, Luxembourg became part of the First French Republic and Empire under Napoleon.The present-day state of Luxembourg first emerged at the Congress of Vienna in 1815. The Grand-Duchy, with its powerful fortress, became an independent state under the personal possession of William I of the Netherlands with a Prussian garrison to guard the city against another invasion from France. In 1839, following the turmoil of the Belgian Revolution, the purely French-speaking part of Luxembourg was ceded to Belgium and the Luxembourgish-speaking part (except the Arelerland, the area around Arlon) became what is the present state of Luxembourg.Luxembourg is a founding member of the European Union, OECD, United Nations, NATO, and Benelux. The city of Luxembourg, which is the country's capital and largest city, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the EU. Luxembourg served on the United Nations Security Council for the years 2013 and 2014, which was a first in the country's history. As of 2018, Luxembourgish citizens had visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 186 countries and territories, ranking the Luxembourgish passport 5th in the world, tied with Austria, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the United States.
