Hike through a country: Luxembourg in 4 days

In the course of 4 days' time, we've hiked a total distance of 120km, thereby crossing Luxembourg from East to West. Although this comes down to about 30 km per day, which sounds very feasible, the hike is not to be underestimated because Luxembourg is not as flat as you might think. Below is an overview of our itinerary.


Day 1

  • Start of the hike around noon in Echternach, the oldest city of Luxembourg situated on the border with Germany
  • Via the GR5 route we reached a stunning viewpoint over Echternach
  • We followed the beautiful Mullerthal trail, which goes through the woodlands connecting Echternach and Berdorf.
  • A short break in Berdorf where we enjoyed a cool beer.
  • Around sunset we reached the castle of Beaufort and set up camp nearby.
