Ritje van zaterdag 17 november 2018. Prachtige herfstkleuren langs de mooie groene Michelinwegen.

We vertrokken vanuit het hotelletje Gasthaus-Pension-Restaurant Geimer, aangesloten bij de Tourenfahrer groep. Een aanradertje, nette kamer en badkamer, lekker eten, halfpension 48 euro p.p.n en garage voor de motoren.

Start dus in het Duitse Plütscheid, 40 km over de Belgische grens in de Eifel. Via een mooi kronkelweggetje richting Krautscheid, door het Duits-Luxemburgs Natuurpark, rijden we in Keppeshausen het water over en zitten we meteen in Luxemburg.

We kiezen de mooie groene Michelinwegen en passeren langs Vianden, Diekirch, Esch-sur-Sûre (daar even de groene weg verlaten door de omleiding) richting Pont Misère met de mooie uitzichten. 

(Brug van de miserie ... Vóór deze brug gebouwd was moesten mensen en goederen overgezet worden door een veerman. De legende vertelt over een ruiter die de rivier wou oversteken en daarbij omkwam. Minder romantisch is waarschijnlijk de verklaring dat de mensen voor het bestaan van de brug of de overvaart met de boot, door het water moesten waden. Dat met koude en regen met ingespannen paarden zeker niet gemakkelijk was.)

Via Bavigne en Wiltz keren we terug, we blijven nog steeds op de mooie groene Michelinwegen. We pikken wat haarspeldbochtjes mee in Krautenbach en rijden zo langs Rodershausen, behorend tot het kanton Clervaux in Luxemburg. 

Het kanton Clervaux (Luxemburgs: Kanton Klierf) is het noordelijkste kanton van het Groothertogdom Luxemburg. In het noorden en westen grenst het kanton aan België, in het oosten aan Duitsland en in het zuiden aan de kantons Wiltz, Diekirch en Vianden waar we eerder op de dag doorheen reden.

We keren via dezelfde mooie kronkelweg terug naar het Duits-Luxemburgs Natuurpark, richting hotel.

Ride from Saturday, November 17, 2018. Beautiful autumn colors along the beautiful green Michelin roads.

We left from the hotel Gasthaus-Pension-Restaurant Geimer, member of the the Tourenfahrer group. Nice clean room and bathroom, good food, breakfast and dinner included 48 euro p.p.n and garage for the motorcycles.

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.

We choose the beautiful green Michelin roads and pass Vianden, Diekirch, Esch-sur-Sûre (where we leave the green road through the detour) 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, which was not easy with cold and rain with strenuous horses.)

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 Belgium, in the east Germany and in the south the cantons of Wiltz, Diekirch and Vianden where we drove through earlier in the day.

We return via the same beautiful winding road to the German-Luxembourg Natural Park, towards the hotel.

230 km of nice km's on your counter :-)  (route for Garmin and TT)

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, together with Brussels and Strasbourg, is one of the three official capitals of the European Union 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 2016, Luxembourg had a population of 576,249, 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 at the high time of the 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 Oil-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. In 2016 Luxembourgish citizens had visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 172 countries and territories, ranking the Luxembourgish passport 15th in the world, tied with countries such as Canada and Switzerland.
