Description by the author

From Houffalize, this path follows the well-paved cycle path above the old tram to Bourcy (more information about this cycle path: http://gocycling.atwebpages.com/?part=traject&id=087 ). Then pedal on a plateau where the wind has a free hand. After the descent to Benonchamps, just after this village, there is the well-paved cycle path of the old Bastogne-Wiltz railway line. It's a nice part for cycling, the railway line runs downhill along the Wiltz River to Luxembourg and you even cycle through 4 illuminated railway tunnels. More info about this cycle path: http://www.achim-bartoschek.de/details/lu01.htm?f
In Winseler, the cycle path is abandoned and follows a steep climb to Berlé. Then
descends on a well-paved road, closed to car traffic, to the lake of the Haute Sûre (reservoir). The reservoir is followed for several kilometers, and in Liefrange the ascent is climbed away from the reservoir (after leaving the main road, the climb becomes steep), but after Kaundorf there is a furious descent (11%) towards the dam.

Then the route crosses the beautiful town of Esch-sur-Sûre and then becomes the Sauer
Follow-up (N27). This fairly quiet road largely follows the river at an altitude that makes this road
offers beautiful views of the river. The valley of the Sûre is decorated with a very beautiful
Ascent to Dahl, then descent to Kautenbach, in the Wiltztal.
Then follows the beautiful climb (with almost 10 hairpin bends) of the Könerhaff coast, see: http://www.lacharlygaul.lu/English/2008F/gaul08cote4.htm .
Via Wilwerwiltz (descent and ascent) it goes to Knaphoscheid. You will reach this village after a steady climb (from the Béchel).

Via Wincrange and Troine, he crossed the plateau to return to Belgium. What remains is the beautiful part from Tavigny to Houffalize, this time not on the bike path above the old tram, but on the main roads.
It is worth mentioning that the roads and cycle paths in Luxembourg are of excellent quality.
