Get Happy! The best way to experience ‘Spring’ is through a gorgeous ramble through the sloping hillsides around picturesque Schwebsange (lux. Schwéidsbeng).
Known for its wine festival on the first Sunday in September each year, this is a walk one should take in all seasons. Start near the two-towered church (XVth century) and the nice Bacchus fountain. Leave the village with its lovely vintner houses and the numerous wine presses on the main road in a northern direction. After 550 m, turn left and make your way up the vineyards towards the wooded peak (“Fëlsbësch”) of the route. Arriving on top of the “Fëlsberg” hill and reaching the vineyards again, passing the Saint Donatus statue, enjoy the magnificent views over the Moselle valley, its beautiful villages and the manmade lakes of the “Haff Réimech” nature reserve, a birdwatchers’ paradise. Return to Schwebsange, which, by the way, does have the only sailing harbour in the Luxembourg Moselle.
