“There are picturesque landscapes and forests and fantastic roads for cycling,” says Mirjam Bamberger, CEO of AXA Luxembourg and CEO of AXA Wealth Europe, who is a Swiss and German national. Whether it is to the Mullerthal (also called “Little Switzerland”), the Valley of the Seven Castles in the west or along the Moselle in the east, she always finds places to fulfil her passion for cycling.

There are also other routes, shorter ones, that she enjoys in Luxembourg in a professional context: “There is a very close relationship between the private sector and the political sphere. Access to ministers or key decision makers is very easy. Added to this is the extraordinary multicultural character of a country with almost 635,000 inhabitants representing more than 170 nationalities.”

When she is not riding her bike around the country, Mirjam Bamberger loves to visit the Musee d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, also called the MUDAM. “It is a work of art in itself, with such a special and unique architecture.”
