Top Trails Hiking

Rewarding experiences

For hikers, Luxembourg is the ideal destination: the country has one of the densest networks of hiking trails in Europe. The “top class”, so to speak, are “Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe.” They meet strict criteria to ensure attractive tours and glimpses into diverse landscapes.

Mullerthal Trail
Destination(s): Mullerthal

The 112-kilometre Mullerthal Trail, which runs through the Mullerthal region, is internationally renowned. The landscape alternates between fascinating rock formations and dense forest. And the altitude you climb during your hike is not to be sneezed at either.

Escapardenne Trail
Destination(s): Éislek

The 158-kilometre Escapardenne Trail combines two “Leading Quality Trails - Best of Europe”, the Lee and the cross-border Éislek Trail. It leads through varied and, in part, still original landscapes in the Luxembourg-Belgian Ardennes, over high plateaus and cleft rocks, green meadows and through coniferous forests, and is always well marked.

In the north of Luxembourg, more precisely in the Éislek, there are over 200 circular walking trails through forests, past castles, through deep valleys and between rocks. The 18 Éislek Pied are particularly beautiful and diverse. They are also a reason why the Éislek has now been named the first quality walking region in Europe “Leading Quality Region – Best of Europe”.

Minett Trail
Destination(s): Minett

In the south of the country, hiking culture is also breaking new ground: The 90-kilometre Minett Trail runs through a fascinating nature reserve on the former industrial wasteland of the open cast mine. The “Kabaisercher” hiking lodges are there to welcome hikers. The original accommodations are former industrial buildings, the entrance portal to the fairy tale park, schools, factories and tourist vehicles that have been converted for overnight stays.

Guttland.Trails
Destination(s): Guttland

Right at the heart of Luxembourg, the Guttland.Trails take pleasure hikers on dreamy journeys. Two of the trails are part of the “Leading Quality Trails Day Walks – Best of Europe”. Slow tourism is the magic word here. Simply walk in nature, stress free.

Other trails

In the east of the country, various dream loops certified by the German hiking institute attract visitors to the vineyards and the Moselle. Across the country, the Auto-Pédestres circular walking trails offer the opportunity to take shorter, yet charming, hikes. Last but not least, there are a large number of local and themed hiking trails. Why not discover a meditation trail, barefoot trail or sound walking trail? Take things down a gear and go for a pleasant walk...

The NatureWanderPark delux promises unlimited hiking enjoyment in the Eifel/Luxembourg region. 23 premium-quality circular walking trails are part of the hiking range of the Südeifel, the Éislek region and the Mullerthal – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland. You will pass through four natural parks, dense forests, but also over wide pastures and meadows or even along hop fields, through deep-cut valleys, mysterious gorges or past rugged rock formations.

The Circuit du Lac offers a full experience of the Upper-Sûre Lake in all its splendour. In the middle of the Obersauer Nature Park, you will discover magnificent views, unique flora and fauna as well as picturesque small towns around the lake. The Circuit du Lac is divided into two circular walking trails.

The Sentier Adrien Ries National Walking Trail is a 54 km round trip trail around the Nordstad. It symbolically represents the connection between the six Nordstad communities. From the valley of the Sauer up to the lookout points of the mountain ridges, the trail leads over meadows, forest and field trails. Numerous castles, including the imposing Colmar-Berg Castle, home to the Grand Duke, line the trail.
