General information

Description of the trail

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 Larochette at the youth hostel and leads us in direction of the city centre (change of path marking). We follow the Mullerthal Trail to ‘Blummendall’ (change of path marking). We then continue on the ‘sentier du Mëllerdall’ through woods and along rock formations in direction of Kobenbour. At Kasselt (change of path marking), we follow the ‘sentier Fred Welter’ to the forest of ‘Liembierg’ (change of path marking). We then follow again the ‘sentier du Mëllerdall’ and pass the ‘Armeslee’ as well as the ‘ Daxelee’ to Scheidgen. We descent into the valley and pass through Lauterborn. We arrive at the lake of Echternach and follow the youth hostels trail to the youth hostel, located next to the lake.
