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.

Lovely countryside as a family of three the youngest at 8 years old it was easy going as we crossed the different levels of hiking trails. The climbs up into the hills was a little scary at times as my 8yr old loved to jump about and the ledges at times were narrow with a long drop. The water below... More

The whole area is criss-crossed by walking paths, perfectly signposted and very entertaining as the rocks you come across are fantastically eery. It is however recommended to take some precautions. Make sure you are well equipped as some paths are particularly physical, hiking shoes and a good level of fitness are required. Bring plenty of water, shops and villages are... More

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The rock formations are stunning weather driving through on the main road or walking. My favorite spot is where two rock faces form a natural walkway about 1m wide. Really cool place.

One of the best things we did in Luxembourg. I would recommend finding a hotel or apartment or camping next to the area. Search the scenery you want to see, choose a trek and go. You can have a picnic (do not litter) or eat in one of the restaurants. I think a nice weekend in the area is enough,... More

We were flying out of Luxembourg and found this on Trip Advisor. We hiked along the stream up to the waterfall, Schiessentumpel. We ate at Restaurant Rinlandermillen on the way. It was fabulous. Along the trail there were a lot of big red slugs, so watch out for those! They are cool. We had some trouble figuring out what address... More

The Müllerthal, called "luxembourgish Switzerland", is without doubt one of THE most beautiful places in Luxembourg, and the greater region. There are tons of different hiking ways, with all sort of lenghts (up to 50km) and degrees of difficulty. And the best, it´s awesome in every season. So yeah, go for it

We went to see Scheissentümpel cascades & the neat bridge, there is a free parking area about 500 m from the cascades. You can walk along the road on the sidewalk or take the more adventurous hiking path which we really enjoyed. Great scenery and photo opps. If you walk on the path back towards the parking area and past... More

You could spend weeks in this region - there are so many areas to explore and it's just gorgeous! Highly recommend even a drive through the area - you'll want to pull over and walk for at least a little bit, promise!
