    Morning all, I'm off to Luxembourg in a few weeks for 3 nights. I've found a few routes from Ride but wondered if anyone had any suggestions on good routes?

    To be honest there isn't much to go at between Calais and Luxembourg.
    I went to Luxembourg City last week and just blasted down the E40
    But once you are there you can head off into Germany, the B500 is a bit of a hike but you could go to Trier then up the Moselle Valley

    E40/A16 from Calais pass Brugge and Brussels and keep going , but toll free and quickish roads, lots of Services for fuel and coffee stops

    La Roche is worth a visit and Spa obviously, La Rochette and Etchternach.

    It would be interesting to hear how you get on - a few pictures. Never been to Luxembourg- been through Belgium and the Ardennes a few times - but never Luxembourg.

    Don't feel you have to !

    Don't want to spoil your trip or anything, thinking you have to take pictures.

    I will be going to Assen TT again next year and will pass through Belgium again - just thought if Luxembourg was nice, could pass that way instead.

    Late post I know but went to Luxembourg for a long weekend in September.
    Fab trip and great routes. Ended up using the Ride Routes tour of Luxembourg which were spot on - https://www.ride.co.uk/routes-1/the-ride-guide-to-europe-second-edition. I adapted one of the days to include a trip to Spa too. Nice stopping off at Cambrai on the way for some food too.
    No photos though sadly other than a selfie with the DJ in a city bar! We stayed in the city and had a great time at night too - friendly locals and plenty of nightlife. Can highly recommend for a long weekend.
