Hiking tour ‘Go North’

During the next six days you will hike through the Little Switzerland of Luxembourg and through the Luxembourg Ardennes, also called ‘Eislek’. The first stop is Hollenfels with its youth hostel, lying opposite the castle. The second stage leads to the region of Mullerthal, more precisely to Larochette. Experience the imposing rocks, valleys and views of this diverse landscape. The third day leads to Echternach, the oldest city in Luxembourg, which invites you to visit its many sights. On the following day you can take your time and enjoy the shortest stage through the most beautiful rock passageways. On the penultimate day we continue to the Ardennes until we arrive in Vianden - a medieval town, which is characterised by its imposing castle. Finally, we hike to Ettelbruck, from where you can take the train back to Luxembourg city.
