About ING Route du vin

Some 23km southeast of Luxembourg City, Remich is the Wine Route’s main transport hub. It’s a pleasant town with a bridge to Germany and an old-fashioned feel; it’s favoured by locals for indulgent lunches, picnics and riverside promenades. A line of stately hotels are all on the wrong side of the very busy riverside road. One-hour pleasure cruises, plus further options with buffet meals or shows, are operated by Navitours.

Wine fans should head to the northern edge of town where, behind a popular restaurant, Caves St-Martin really are caves – time-blackened and hewn directly into a cliff. St-Martin’s excellent crémant is actually produced elsewhere but the creation process is explained inside the cool of the tunnels (bring a sweater). Despite stated opening times, tours depart based on groups so individuals are advised to book via the website. Bus 450 Remich–Grevenmacher stops out front.

With that being said, the ING Route du Vin Half Marathon is the place to be!!

The ING Route du Vin Half Marathon (French: ING Route du Vin Semi-Marathon) is an annual road running competition over the half marathon distance (21.1 km/13.1 mi) which takes place in late September in Remich, Luxembourg. It is organised by the Luxembourg Athletics Federation and it is a member race of the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races. It is sponsored by ING Luxembourg.

ING Route du vin Trivia

The current course (with a start and finish in Remich) was first put to use in 2000. The distance of the race has also varied: it was not reliably measured for the half marathon distance until 1995. The first four editions were too long, as was the 1972 race. From 1966 to 1979, the courses were generally short and from 1979 to 1999 the times run on the course were aided by an overall downhill elevation. Since 2000, the times set on the course have been eligible for record making purposes. The course now follows a north–south loop alongside the left bank of the Moselle River and starts and ends near the centre of the town. he race began as a men's only competition and women were first included in 1974. A total of 1358 runners took part in the event in 2013 (1062 men and 296 women). It is one of two major road running events in the country that attracts elite runners and a mass field, alongside the annual Luxembourg Marathon.
