It will take you a couple of minutes to walk around the tiny village of Esch-sur-Sure and for sure you'll get the sleepy impression most places give in Luxembourg.

Good for: Families
The best way to visit Esch-sur-Sure is by car. As distances in Luxembourg are small, it is convenient to add Esch as a part of a daily round trip in the north part of the country.
But beware as usually the roads are under construction and you have to pay attention to redirections.
As the village is not served by train, the other alternative is buses.
Few kilometers away from Esch-sur-Sure lies this artificial lake which is a large water reservoir. It's a nice stop to enjoy the surrounding landscape with green hills.
It is considered a unique biotope but human activities also take place like watersports (swimming, yachting, canoeing etc)
