Impressions From the Mullerthal Trail

| Comments

Rain, Sunshine, a trail blaze every 250 m, the most amazing sandstone rock formations, and a lot more - that’s the Mullerthal Trail in Luxembourg, on which I was hiking last week!

Six years ago I hiked the Escapardenne Eislek Trail from Kautenbach in Luxembourg to La Roche-en-Ardenne in Belgium, and as I was fast back then (I was several years younger and carried less photo equipment 😁) I finished a day early and hence made a short trip to Berdorf and explored the local climbing crag and hiking trails. Since then I always wanted to go back to this corner of Luxembourg, and hike the Mullerthal Trail. Despite the on-going Pandemic I managed to fly to Germany, briefly visit my family and then travel by train and bus to Echternach in Luxembourg.

Together with my best friend Martin we were here to hike the complete Mullerthal Trail. There was just one problem: The weather forecast was wet. Wet as in “It’s gonna rain the next nine days” wet. Happily it didn’t end up raining all the time, but you’ll have to wait for that story in the detailed trip report later this month! For now I want to share some of my favourite impressions from this 112 km long trail with it’s three Routes:

You will be able to see some more photos on Instagram this week before the article comes, so maybe give me a follow 😉 (and check out the Story Highlight Videos from the trail while you’re there!)! And if you can’t wait: The beech trees were still a vibrant green and just starting to put on their autumn 🍂 colours on as we left, so at least till the start of November you should be able to enjoy here the most beautiful autumn colours, in combination with the amazing rock formations and the very well marked trail!
