First stage of our LCMT CYCLO road tour: up to beautiful Grand Duché Luxemburg. Leaving Belgium after only 10 km up to Clervaux. First climbing on good asphalted road. We go further across the border with Germany, following the Our-river (upstream). Vianden Castle is next highlight after already enjoyed first food and drinking supply zone.. Indeed, here it all becomes a bit heavier: 3 succeeding climbings including some of it on well laid cobble stones. This one is called: Mont-Saint-Nicolas! Just before entering Echternach we are at our uttermost point of this 'Little Switzerland' journey. So we go back north-west through this beautiful Müllerthal straight up to Ettelbruck. A long spread climbing, not to steap but good for almost 9 km without any downhill or flat roads. Most difficult climbing waits at km 140 and then slightly passing Fatima's town Wiltz, we choose our ways back to Belgium.
