Quality hiking trails
Luxembourg boasts several quality and premium hiking trails:
It's not just sports enthusiasts who will get their money's worth when hiking in Luxembourg. There are also plenty of family-friendly tours to discover in the Grand Duchy.

Would you like to hike without luggage? Then book the luggage transport service offered by Visit Luxembourg in cooperation with Voyages Emile Weber. You can book between 1.4. and 30.11. here: www.movewecarry.lu
From the hotel to the next youth hostel, from the campsite to the holiday flat - your luggage travels ahead of you and awaits you on arrival after each stage.
Planning and equipment
The ideal tool for planning hiking tours is the ‘Geoportail’ of the land registry office in Luxembourg. Here you can view virtually all hiking trails, including the youth hostel trails, directly on a topographical map and download GPS files.
But how do you make the right choice for a suitable tour for you and your friends? What do I have to bear in mind? What should I put in my hiking backpack?

Depending on the region, detailed maps are available. These can be purchased either at the respective youth hostel or at the tourist information offices.
