The river Alzette at Grund, Luxembourg City

This little triangle punches above its weight in terms of routes and access. The GR5 (from Hoek van Holland to the Mediterranean) runs down the eastern side of the country (see a piece related to a recent guide-book), but all parts are served very well by footpath routes.

On a recent visit, I managed to get a copy of a loose-leaf book of inter-station walks, published by CFL, the national railway company. This is now out of print, but I expect that any future ventures like this will be web-available. Since public transport is free on all trains (in standard class) and buses within the country, and since a vast proportion of the country is made up of hills and valleys, fields and forests, it’s a surprise that there are so few visitors taking walking holidays there.
