Hiking trail Echternach - Graulinster/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 at the youth hostel Echternach and leads along the lake following the youth hostels trail to the ‘parking du lac’. We now continue on the ‘sentier du Mëllerdall’ until we arrive at the Liembierg forest. We then follow briefly the ‘sentier Fred Welter’ to Kasselt. We continue on the ‘sentier du Mëllerdall’ through the Marscher forest and arrive at the village entry of Graulinster. We follow the youth hostels trail and arrive at the bus stop.
