Update june 2018: Due to bad weather conditions, there is a deviation next to Berdorf. Our hiking trail will be 2,2 km longer than usually. Please follow the link to Geoportail Luxembourg: http://g-o.lu/3/jFKw
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 follows the youth hostels trail along the lake of Echternach. After the change of the path markings, we follow the ‘Sentier Maurice Cosyn’ at the retirement home and ascent to the ‘Troosknäppchen’ with its superb view over Echternach. We follow the trail through the ‘Wollefsschlucht’ and arrive at the ‘Perekop’. We continue along the ‘Amphitheater’ to Berdorf. Further rock formations lead us to the climbing rock of the ‘Wanterbaach’ and then to Grundhof. We then pass by the ‘Halerbaach’ and the ‘Haupeschbaach’ and arrive at the castle of Beaufort (change of path marking). We follow the youth hostels trail through the village to the youth hostel.
