Minett Cycle Preview: Segment Belvaux-Kayl

Description

Drive through the southernmost section of the upcoming "Minett Cycle" on the route of the PC8 between Belvaux and Kayl.

In the south of Luxembourg lies the Minett region, the land of the red soil (Terre rouge), named after the ore-bearing rock in the soil, which also colors it red. In the future, a coherent, fully signposted bicycle tour will lead through the entire region: the "Minett Cycle". From 2023, a total of 150 kilometers (divided into three loops) of bicycle infrastructure should invite you to discover them.

Until then, you can already ride sections of the future "Minett Cycle" and discover sections of the unique Minett region. On this section, the path between Belvaux and Rumelange leads over "Piste Cyclable" number 8 and thus also along the border with France (and even through French territory for a few meters). Past the new district of Esch-Belval, through Esch-sur-Alzette and the Ellergronn nature reserve, past the "Leiffrächen" and the national miners' monument to the border in Rumelange. The route then leads to the "Schungfabrik" and the "Musée vun der Aarbecht" (MUAR) in Kayl.
