All sportsmen and those interested in climbing are welcome to join us at the indoor climbing wall of Echternach youth hostel in order to try to conquer the 14-metre high wall and thus support the association ‘Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner’. Those, who have never climbed a wall before are also welcome to try their luck. With your help we would like to collect as many donations as possible. You may sponsor yourself while participating in this event or find a person to sponsor you, such as your family, friends or your firm. After all the organising and financing, it’s time to conquer the wall as many times as possible during this special day.

The participants pay an entry fee of 3 EUR, which is directly fed into the donation piggybank. Those arriving at the top of the climbing wall should not hesitate to ring the bell because at that sound, we will increase the donations by putting further money into the piggybank.

In order for the participants to stay fit, the kitchen team of the youth hostel provides refreshments and snacks during the whole day. A framework program will be organised too.

The proceeds of the activity will be entirely donated to the association ‘Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner’. We need your help and endurance. Spectators as well as supporters are also welcome during our special event, because the more money we collect, the more we’ll help the sick children from.

If you’re looking for a sportive activity in nature between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, why not consider participating in our wellbeing-hiking tour? On Saturday 28th of December takes place the second edition of the wellbeing hiking tour, with a vegetarian dinner as the highlight of the day.

The one-day hike will take place in the capital of the Mullerthal region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland. The 20 km long tour is rather difficult.

We then hike in direction of Osweiler, were we will stop for a break with a culinary surprise on the peak of Frombourg. The tour is organised under the theme of ‘wellbeing’. Hiking in nature strengthens not only the endurance of the body, it also has a positive impact on the mind.

After the long hike, the culinary part of the tour awaits the participants in the youth hostel Echternach. The kitchen team of the hostel will prepare a special vegetarian menu for the hungry hikers. If you’re too tired to drive home after the tour, why not spend the night at the youth hostel Echternach? Just book your bed in advance.

GPS workshop: theory: How to prepare a route on your computer

In this day and age, GPS devices can be used anywhere at any time. Whether we travel by car, by mountain bike, go hiking or geocaching, this device is very handy. But how does it work during outdoor activities? How do you transfer routes from the GPS to your computer? Which device and software do you need for your hiking tour? And what is geocaching? Our workshops, organised in the city hostel, provide you with the answers to those questions and help you to understand the device.

This first workshop is rather theoretical because the participants will learn the basics of the GPS device. The planning of routes on the computer and maps will also be on the programme. The second workshop aims at combing theory and practice and thus we use the GPS during a geocaching activity. If you don’t own a GPS device, we will provide one for you. The two workshops may also be booked separately.

From 9:30 am to 1:00 pm at the youth hostel Luxembourg

  • Garmin Basecamp
  • Geoportail.lu
  • Locus Map for android
  • Route portals on the internet

The participants may bring and use their own laptop. After the workshop, a debriefing will be organised during lunch in order to discuss the most important facts.

Saturday, 1st of February, 2020
From 9:30 am to 1:00 pm at the youth hostel Luxembourg

GPS in practice – During a short hike through Luxembourg-city, we learn how to use the GPS device outdoors. Mapping out routes, finding way points as well as locating a geocache won’t be a challenge anymore.

GPS workshop: in practice: hiking tour and how to use your device outdoors

In this day and age, GPS devices can be used anywhere at any time. Whether we travel by car, by mountain bike, go hiking or geocaching, this device is very handy. But how does it work during outdoor activities? How do you transfer routes from the GPS to your computer? Which device and software do you need for your hiking tour? And what is geocaching? Our workshops, organised in the city hostel, provide you with the answers to those questions and help you to understand the device.

During the second workshop, we will put the theory to practice. During a short hike, we will learn the use of the device. If you don’t own a GPS device, we will provide one for you. During the first workshop, held one week earlier, we will explain in detail the basics of the GPS device. The programme includes the planning of routes on the computer, maps as well as the different devices and software. The two workshops may also be booked separately.
