Hiking Trail 3 : Luxembourg – Bourglinster


Starting at the youth hostel, we leave the city of Luxembourg through the idyllic suburb Pfaffenthal. From the railway station Dommeldange (marking changes) we follow the “Mëllerdall path” through the Grunewald until Bourglinster. The first part of this path follows an old Roman road and leads onto the cross of the dead woman and the 6 princesses. Below the “Stafelter”, the trail crosses the main road and leads us to the source of the white Ernz over to the cave of the hermit “Schetzel”. We continue our hiking tour through the forest of the Grand Duke until Eisenborn, where we go eastwards to reach the castle of Bourglinster. The charming youth hostel, a historical monument, located in the heart of the village is only a few steps away from the castle.
