Wiltz on two wheels
After a good breakfast, outside in the sunshine, I decided to go for a bike ride in this beautiful weather. At the campsite I was told that I could rent bikes at the tourist office, which is in the castle, so I set off.
When I arrived at the castle, I was surprised by the wide choice of bikes: I could choose between a normal mountain bike, an E-Bike and a City E-Bike. My choice was an electric city bike, which is perfect for riding on city roads. The prices depend on the duration of the rental, you can choose between a half day or a full day. After filling in the form and paying the deposit, I was shown the cycle paths. Along the old railway line, you can go either to Bastogne (Belgium) or to Kautenbach.

From the pick-up point, which is 100 metres from the castle, I decided to set off for Bastogne. I started downhill and, without too much difficulty, found the cycle track that goes almost straight to Bastogne. The track is about 20km long. On arriving in Bastogne I sat in a café and enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the small town. Traditional Belgian fries were of course a must in order to regain strength.
On the way back, I stopped briefly at the Bastogne War Museum, which is just a stone's throw from the cycle track. Afterwards, I took the road again towards Wiltz. A little exhausted but very satisfied, I returned the bike and let the evening end. The next adventure was waiting for me the next day.
