City of Luxembourg: 

While the Luxembourg fortress was a true textbook example of European military architecture, it has changed hands many times over its existence. Italian, Spanish, Belgian, French, Austrian, Dutch and Prussian engineers have been involved in progressively extending the fortifications of this stronghold. Traces of their work remain, and what traces! Since 1994, the fortifications and the old city have been classed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
An extraordinary network of 23km of underground galleries, the famous casemates, which were carved from the city’s rocks constitute the city’s main attraction.
The Grand-Duke’s residence, the Grand-Ducal palace, has an exceptionally beautiful facade in Flemish Renaissance style (16th century), and a majestic interior and ceremonial rooms open to the public during the summer only. In the Notre-Dame Cathedral, 17th century rood screen contrasts with the 20th century windows.

BIKING TRAILS OF THE GRAND DUCHY OF LUXEMBOURG:


Passed into law in 1999, a network of biking trails were put into existence.  This network currently covers 600 km of slopes spread out over 23 trails of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The elevation of these trails range from 132 M above sea level to 559 M above sea level.  

National network and any other bicycle tracks users are required to comply with all the code of the Luxembourg Route regulations.

GERMANY

The German region of Moselle is a 2 hour drive from Saint-Léger.

A roundtrip visit is possible in a day and offers an opportunity to discover the many small wine villages of Nennig, Trier, Bernkastel-Kues, Traben-Trarbach, Zell and their histories.   This is Germany's most northerly winegrowing region.

The wineries invite you to tour the grounds or visit one of the wine cellars tasting local wines.  Wines are also available at area restaurants.

The magnificent landscape of the Moselle River which runs deep in a bed of rock, is also a region characterized by a secular culture.
Breathtakingly beautiful, this landscape creates harsh working conditions for the winegrowers. The best vines are often found located on steep slopes or in earth containing a high slate content. However difficult, these growing conditions contribute to the wines excellent mineral qualities for which they are known.
