Walking tours through mysterious rocky landscapes and enchanting woods in Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland.

The Mullerthal Trail with its 112 km is composed by 3 big tracks (Route 1, Route 2, Route 3). Route 1 and Route 2 pass through the City of Echternach which is largely known as the cultural and historic highlight of the region.

The three routes each have their distinction: Besides the cultural highlights, Route 1 shows the typical landscape elements which are the rocks, forests and pastures.

Route 2 passes through the heart of Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland and offers most spectacular rock formations.

Route 3 features next to the rock formations many stream valleys and romantic castles.

The routes are all connected but can also be hiked separately. The hikes are all quite individual as departures can be undertaken from the various localities.

Furthermore, the Mullerthal Trail offers four tracks, the ExtraTours, which can also be characterized as very attractive hiking tracks. They can be considered as departures as well as additional tours when all the other hikes have been undertaken already.

The Mullerthal Trail and the ExtraTours have been signalled completely which gives you a great feeling of security and prevents from having bad surprises.
