The rivers of the Grand Duchy are an anglers' paradise, but one that's strictly controlled by the authorities. Complex regulations govern fishing in private waters and rivers. Licenses are issued by the district commissioners in Luxembourg City, Diekirch, and Grevenmacher, and by a few communal administrations, such as those in Ettelbruck, Vianden, and Wiltz. Check with the local tourist information office about the local regulations and licensing before going fishing.

There are marked walking paths throughout the Grand Duchy. During the summer, organized walking tours of 10 to 40km (6-25 miles) are conducted from Luxembourg City. Contact the Fédération Luxembourgeoise de Marche Populaire, BP 272, 2012 Luxembourg (tel. 621-500-677; www.flmp-ivv.lu), for more information.

Horseback-riding is a favorite sport in Luxembourg.

The organization puts together horseback tours in Luxembourg City and around the Grand Duchy.
