Kneiff

Kneiff, the highest road of Luxembourg

Kneiff is a mountain pass at an elevation of 559m (1,833ft) above the sea level, located in the commune of Troisvierges, in northern Luxembourg. At this elevation it’s the highest point of the country.

Located on the Ösling plateau between the village of Huldange and Wemperhaard, the road to the summit is paved. Starting from the roundabout at Wemperhaard, the drive is 1.4km long.

Follow for 1km the N7 road towards Huldange and take a turnoff to the left for 200m. Located close to the town of Wilwerdange, it's not long ago that Kneiff was determined to be the country’s highpoint. For many years Burgplaatz was considered the highest point. There is even a tower there, with a sign next to it that still claims it to be so.
