Starting at the castle of Hollenfels, the route crosses the so-called “valley of the Seven Castles” and leads to “Mariendallerhaff” and the valley of the river Mamer (sign change). The route passes picturesque rocks, crosses small rivers and leads then to Kopstal. In “Weidendall”, a high uphill leads to Bridel. We then hike through the forest “Bambësch” and come out in “Eecherfeld” from where we go down to the valley of the Alzette. Through the suburb Pfaffenthal, we arrive at the youth hostel situated next to the “Bock rock”. The historical centre of the main capital is only a few minutes’ walk away.
