Description :


Often referred to as Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, the Mullerthal Region - or Mëllerdall in Luxembourgish – owes its name to its hilly landscape reminiscent of Switzerland. The region is above all a unique biotope characterized by sandstone rock formations which are as beguiling as surprising. It is the unique composition of the rock and soil erosion that have contributed to the creation of this landscape so typical for the region. The diverse natural and geological heritage makes the region so special.


Lenght : 11,7 km / Duration : 04h00 / Level : Heavy

This tour is a walk among the beautiful landscape of forests and rocks in the area between Echternach and Berdorf.

Highlights during the hike are the "Wolfsschlucht" (the wolves’ canyon), the Hohllay in Berdorf, the amphitheatre and the Aesbach. The tour is quite strenuous (you walk uphill from Echternach to Berdorf) and lasts about 4 hours so that we strongly recommend good walking shoes. You may also just do part of this track (i.e. from Echternach to Berdorf or the other way round). There are regular bus connections between Berdorf and Echternach
