In the north, the Éislek a.k.a. Oesling region
‘Discovering the sheer beauty of the scenery around us’ just about sums up William’s driving force. William works as an IT manager in Bertrange. Having set up home in Luxembourg some 5 years ago, he has embraced Luxembourg as his adoptive country which also prompted him to get his motorcycle driving licence.
“Wherever you are in Luxembourg, the countryside is always just outdoors, which makes even the shortest ride by motorbike just a great fun experience. And the roads here are in very good shape”.
Having recently set up home in the northern part of the country, William has been making the most of his time by discovering his new region, the Sûre valley in the Luxembourg Ardennes, with a wealth of heritage that continues to amaze him.
“It’s got rolling hills, bends and the changing scenery caters for all tastes. You are riding alongside a lake, a château, in places the road is bordered by rock formations that make you feel you are somewhere entirely else”.
Moreover, the bikers of the Grande Région as the wider region is known, are not wrong. Every weekend, this route is a favourite among bikers coming in from Belgium and Holland.
The route: 22 km riding from Insenborn to Bourscheid passing along Esch sur Sûre.
