In front of the train station in Ettelbruck we start following the youth hostel hiking trail which leads us up to Lultzhausen. After leaving the town center behind us we leave the city along the Haupeschbaach. Before reaching the Hirtzhaff the path turns right and the climb to Oberfeulen begins. From there the trail follows the Meschelbaach a long time up to Dickeschbour, a beautiful and calm part of the route. After crossing Eschdorf we start the descend to the lake, with the youth hostel on its borders.
