Hiking in Mullerthal (8)
03.10.2020 - 04.10.2020

Hiking weekend around Beaufort - in the footsteps of Carlo Hemmer*

The seventh edition of our annual hike in the footsteps of Carlo Hemmer will lead us to the Mullerthal region - Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, and more precisely to Beaufort. Two day hikes are on the programme for the participants, divided into two groups (group at intermediate speed and a sporty group at high speed). Starting point and destination of this hike is the modern youth hostel Beaufort, located next to the most picturesque hiking trails of the region.

The first day tour leads the participants from the youth hostel to Grundhof and to Berdorf, where they will return to Beaufort. During the hike, we will see astounding rock formations as well as beautiful views. After the hike, the participants will be enjoying a barbecue and stay overnight in a modern dormitory with toilets and showers. On the second day, the participants will start well rested in the opposite direction to Eppeldorf. At ‘Bigelbaach’, we return to the starting point. During the two-day long hike, the participants have to cover different height meters, but they will be rewarded with fantastic views.

The places are limited, please register in advance.

As in previous years, the hiking weekend is organised by the Luxembourgish youth hostelling association in cooperation with the Carlo Hemmer* foundation.

* Carlo Hemmer (1913-1988) from Ettelbrück was an important economist from Luxembourg. Alongside his many professional endeavours both in and outside of Luxembourg, Hemmer had always been a strong supporter of the youth and therefore also of Luxembourg’s youth hostel network. Upon his passing, half of Hemmer’s wealth was donated to the ‘Fondation Lëtzebuerger Jugendherbergen’ founded in 1986 and later renamed to ‘Carlo Hemmer Foundation’. The aim of the foundation is to receive funds and manage the foundation’s assets in order to support youth hostels, social tourism, sporting events and educational activities – independent of political, social and religious aspects.

Length of the tours:

  • Day 1: group at intermediate speed: 20 km / sporty group: 26 km
  • Day 2: group at intermediate speed: 18 km / sporty group: 23 km

Price per person:

  • 70 € (price for members of the youth hostels)
  • 85 € (standard price for non-members*)

* Not a member yet? No problem! Contact us for information on how to get your membership card. Being a member allows you to save money for all activities organised by the youth hostels and much more!

Included in the price: guided tours (2 day hikes), 1 overnight stay in a dormitory at the youth hostel Beaufort, breakfast, 1 dinner and 2 lunch packs with a reusable drinking bottle.

Venue of event:
Youth hostel Beaufort
