Hiking trail Vianden - Ettelbruck/Luxembourg

Route description

The routes of the youth hostels lead over different hiking paths with varied signposts. When the path marking changes, a sign indicates the direction of the route. The hike starts in Vianden at the youth hostel and leads us through Walsdorf and Brandenbourg to the train station of Ettelbruck. During the hike, we only follow the Victor Hugo trail. We take the train at the station of Ettelbruck and get off at ‘Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg Pôle d’Echange’ at the city centre (24 to 37 minutes).
