  • Overall evaluation of the hydromorphological status per surface water body. The assessment of the hydromorphological status is based on the mapping and the assessment of the structural quality of the Luxembourgish watercourses. The quality element “morphology” has not been covered in the framework of the structural quality mapping, but only the two quality elements related to continuity and morphology. The hydromorphological status is assessed in 5 classes.

  • The "good ecological potential" is the environmental quality objective defined by the water framework directive for artificial and heavily modified surface water bodies. The ecological potential is assessed in four classes ranging from 1 to 4 (good and higher, moderate, poor, bad). The classification of the ecological potential is based on the biological, physico-chemical and in some cases also the hydromorphological quality elements.

  • The chemical status of the surface water bodies is assessed as being good or failing to achieve good chemical status. The assessment of the chemical status for the second river basin management plan is based on the list of substances of directive 2008/105/EC as well as its environmental quality standards.

  • According to the Bathing Water Directive 2006/7/CE were designated 3 bathing water groups in Luxembourg : the reservoir of the Upper Sure , the swimming pond in Remerschen and the swimming pond in Weiswampach which are surveyed at 12 bathing water sites. Every year before the start of the bathing season the list of bathing waters will be published in the Luxembourg press. The bathing season in Luxembourg extends from May 1 to September 30. Legally, the Bathing Water Directive was implemented in Luxemburgish Law with the regulation of the 19th of May 2009 regarding the Bathing Water ( règlement grand-ducal du 19 mai 2009 modifié concernant les eaux de baigande ) into Luxembourg law.

  • The bathing waters are monitored according to the Bathing Water Directive 2006/7/CE. During the season, the parameters of Escherichia coli and intestinal enterococci are monitored once per month at 12 monitoring measuring points. These parameters are indicators of fecal pollution.

  • This dataset contains the points of interest proposed by Luxemburg's National Tourist Office "Office National du Tourisme" - ONT. Onle the members of the ONT are represented here, so the data is not to be considered as exhaustive.

  • Bike sharing services and the «Rent-a-Bike» rental stations Numerous camp sites, hotels and shops offer bike rentals. Located at the edge of cycling trails, you can hire the RaB bikes by the day, half day or for numerous days in. It’s very simple: rent a bike at your point of departure and return it to the next station.
