The Mullerthal Trail is the leading hiking track in the Mullerthal Region - Luxemburg's Little Switzerland.

The Mullerthal Trail with more than 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 Luxemburg'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 (smaller) 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. The Mullerthal Trail is leading repeatedly to beautiful view points and to natural and cultural highlights.

Walking on the Trail is thus an unforgettable experience for every one.Children will love the region as the wonderful rock formations want to be explored and climbed. Parents of smaller children though should take especially good care and watch their children as security barriers are not always guaranteed.

Attention: the paths can not be undertaken with a pram or wheelchair.

Perfect place for a rest, a wander or a full blown hike. We stopped here to exercise the dogs and were amazed at how fantastic it is, how well maintained but also how peaceful. Will definitely be returning.

Althought the actual trail is a combination of long distance trails there is numerous shorter walks all very well signposted.

We stopped and walked part of trail number 3. It was relatively easy going, with handrails anywhere they may be needed, and rails where they were needed to protect walkers from any steep inclines. The weather was perfect, and our dog really loved the place - as did we. It doesn't need any real preparation, and the signage (see photo)... More

You can not get tired of hiking in the Mullerthal are. There is so much to see. This time we did the W-3 hike. It is one you have to do. That being said there are many of them.

This part of Luxemburg is worth the petrol getting there. But consult the maps carefully before you pick a trail: there is a huge golf course on the plateau to the north of the valley.. and the snobs hitting balls there didn't even bother shouting Fore! when their balls threatened to knock us out as they flew perilously close by....

This area is absolutely beautiful. The trails are clearly marked and spectacular. The rocks, cliffs and canyons are nice for children as they make the hike extra special.

Some of the routes can be a bit challenging in places, with rocks and elevation gain, but overall a very pleasant hiking area. Well-marked trails but helpful if you have a map.

I did a circular 9 mile walk from Echternach mainly using part of the Mullerthal trail. Very interesting scenery through small gorges, rock formations streams caves and forest, few really expansive views but really enjoyable

Thank xorg
