Cycling

 

Cycling in the city and surrounding suburbs has become increasingly popular for residents. The city has invested heavily in an extensive network of cycle paths, which has grown considerably over the past few years.


There are also special stands available at key locations where you can securely lock up your cycle. (accesible with an mKaart registration) m-box.lu

 

If you do not own a bicycle, you can always rent one. Luxembourg and Esch/Alzette both offer schemes to rent bikes cheaply by the hour.
