After Antwerp, we headed south to the Belgian/Luxembourg border and spent the weekend at Camping Hohenbusch, a very well kept site with all amenities and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Neither of us had ever visited Luxembourg so we decided to put that right and drove 65 miles through the country to Luxembourg city in the south. As well as being one of the founding members of the EU and one of the three capitals of the EU (Brussels & Strasbourg are the others) and the seat of the European Court of Justice, it is also home to some major companies due to its tax incentives! We enjoyed a taste of this ourselves when buying petrol and diesel that was 30% cheaper than anywhere else. In contrast to the modern, glass and steel corporate centre, the old city was very ornate and declared a UNESCO World Hertitage site in 1994 due to the exceptional preservation of its fortifications. We enjoyed our visit as well as the quality and quietness of the roads which made riding a bike heaven.Read more
