Cycling Tours Visit Minett
In the south of Luxembourg lies the Minett region, the land of the red soil (Terre rouge), named after the ore-bearing rock in the soil, which also colors it red. In the future, a coherent, fully signposted bicycle tour will lead through the entire region: the "Minett Cycle". From 2023, a total of 150 kilometers (divided into three loops) of bicycle infrastructure should invite you to discover them.
Until then, you can already ride sections of the future "Minett Cycle" and discover sections of the unique Minett region. On this section, the path between Sanem and Bettembourg in the southern region leads right through the heart of the region; north past Esch-sur-Alzette, Lallange and Schifflange, and then on to Bettembourg, the route thus takes you past several important sites of the historic steel industry. For example, past the old industrial wasteland of the former "Metze Schmelz" with its "Cueva 2022" exhibition in Schifflange.
Follow the signs "PC6": White sign with green border and lettering. It sometimes shows a bicycle and a circular mark with the number "6"
The path can be traveled in both directions and is signposted in both directions.

The path leads integrally over a designated cycle path.
Nevertheless, please observe the rules of the road traffic regulations where your path crosses the road.
Remember to wear a helmet. Bring enough drinking water and food for the trail.
Public transport: Bettembourg train station is well connected, with trains running across the region and to Luxembourg City. Public transport in Luxembourg is free.
