Walking and hiking activities

Here’s a view of the meetup point, shot from the direction of Scott’s Pub:

To get there, the easiest is to walk and take the elevator from Plateau du Saint Esprit down to Grund.

Here’s the map of the hike.

If you like, you can download the GPX file or view it on my sport tracker.

CFL-29 hike

Thanks to Stefanie for organizing this hiking trip. Everyone in the group was lively and joyful – once again it proved that nice people attract nice people 😉

Meetup was at the train station in Luxembourg City.

The train was so busy – I never saw so many people in a train in this country. We left the train in Colmar-Berg to follow the CFL 29 and we miserably failed right at the beginning. So we walked an extra hour because we didn’t decide to cross the Alzette river. Also, we’ve been very lucky with the weather, yay!

According to the GPS, we walked 14.72 km.

After

The return train was so busy, we had to stay on the steps (the normal fine is three thousand Euros for blocking the way). Arrived in Luxembourg City, I rented a Veloh bike to go back home and suddenly I heard someone shouting my name. It was a old mate from high school who was visiting Luxembourg and we didn’t see each other for at least 15 years. We decided to meet on the next day. Small world 😉
