The charming youth hostel is located in the heart of the historic centre of Bourglinster. From here the hiking path leads towards Imbringen and then rises to the left in the forest called "Buchhëlzer". We cross some fields until Asselscheuer before going down to the valley of the Alzette to reach Lorentzweiler. Up the hill, the so-called “Steinseler Plateau”, we catch the Mamer valley and are hiking through the woods with their picturesque cliffs until “Claushaff”. Just before achieving Hollenfels with its castle and youth hostel, we have to pass through the valley of the seven castles.
