Ouvrage Hackenberg

Reviewed By Steffen B - Aachen

Great fortifications, large underground complex, bring warm clothing and boots, only 10-12c degrees at the lower levels. Excellent guided tours in the afternoon only, by unpaid volunteers. The tours take 2.5 to 3 hours. Group size 37 persons. Tours in English language at 14:15, and 14:30 in German only. Other times tours in French language only. Check their website. Underground electric train trip included. The guides are not paid, so consider leaving a decent tip. Great piece of military and technical history, the ouvrage was completed 1936, and taken over by the German troops in 1940, and the US army in 1944.

Mullerthal Trail

The Mullerthal Trail is the leading hiking track in the Mullerthal Region - Luxemburg's Little Switzerland. The Mullerthal Trail with more than 112 km is composed by 3 big tracks (Route 1, Route 2, Route 3).Route 1 and Route 2 pass through the City of Echternach which is largely known as the cultural and historic highlight of the region. The three routes each have their distinction:Besides the cultural highlights, Route 1 shows the typical landscape elements which are the rocks, Forests and pastures. Route 2 passes through the heart of Luxemburg's Little Switzerland and offers most spectacular rock formations. Route 3 features next to the rock formations many stream Valleys and romantic Castles. The routes are all connected but can also be hiked separately. The hikes are all quite individual as departures can be undertaken from the various localities. Furthermore, the Mullerthal Trail offers four (smaller) tracks, the ExtraTours, which can also be characterized as very attractive hiking tracks. They can be considered as departures as well as additional tours when all the other hikes have been undertaken already.The Mullerthal Trail and the ExtraTours have been signalled completely which gives you a great feeling of security and prevents from having bad surprises. The Mullerthal Trail is leading repeatedly to beautiful view points and to natural and cultural highlights. Walking on the Trail is thus an unforgettable experience for every one.Children will love the region as the wonderful rock formations want to be explored and climbed. Parents of smaller children though should take especially good care and watch their children as security barriers are not always guaranteed. Attention: the paths can not be undertaken with a pram or wheelchair.

We took the second route and did it on two separate days. First from Echternach to Berdorf via route E1 (the entrance is just next to the Echternach, Gare bus stop/car park) and second from Consdorf to Mullerthal and back to Consdorf (stop at Consdorf, Post bus stop and the entrance is a few minutes walk ahead)
If you're staying at the city centre, you can take bus 111 to either Consdorf, Berdorf or Echternach depending on which route you would like to take. I personally prefer the Consdorf-Mullerthal circuit as it passes through a very beautiful waterfall.

National Museum of Military History

This museum emerged from the Diekirch Historical Museum (opened in 1984), which was primarily dedicated to the "Battle of the Bulge" in Luxembourg in winter 1944/45. The key topic of the museum remains the balanced and objective historical representation of the military operations in the Ardennes from the german, american and civilian points of view. Over 3000 square meters of exhibition space and numerous lifesize impressive dioramas enable an insight of the dramatic and tragic situations that both, soldiers and civilians, were caught in. Special showrooms feature extensive collections of weapons, uniforms, military equipment of all kind, wheeled- and tracked vehicles, in addition to numerous personal soldier's belongings, photographs, documents and maps. The museum's core is doubtlessly the detailed diorama of the night-time Sauer river crossing at Diekirch on January 18th, 1945 by units of the 5th U.S. Infantry division. A second part at MNHM museum is dedicated to the history of Luxembourg's own armed forces since the creation of Luxembourg as a state, until present. A number of large-scale striking dioramas cover key aspects and periods of the post WWII Luxembourg army. Other sections are dedicated to Luxembourgers fighting in allied armies in both WWI, WWII, and during the Korean conflict.

The information, exhibits, artifacts, etc. contained within this museum are simply astonishing. I have a strong interest in history in general but was only able to appreciate the breadth and depth of the presentations here on an overall level. Regardless, I enjoyed my visit tremendously...MoreDear PamelaK O, Thank you for your excellent review. This gives us conviction that we had the right instinct and hope we'll still have it during our renovation.

Luxembourg American Cemetery Memorial

Reviewed By hjhoosier - San Antonio, Texas

I wanted to come to see Patton’s burial site. A must for any WWII enthusiast or history buff. Getting here wasn’t the quickest or easiest though. You have to go by bus (#15 is what I took) and at the Käschtewee stop you exit. From there it’s a 10 minute or so walk. There are signs, and it does sometimes seem like you might be going the wrong way (it goes under a major road) but keep walking - you’ll find it! Once inside you will see it’s a quick tour. The cemetery isn’t that large. If you stop in the visitors center you can get a guide. Patton’s burial site is front and center while the rest are in sections A-E. Make note there are some Jewish graves there marked with a Star of David. Be sure to go inside the chapel too.

Saarschleife

Reviewed By mrdom

I've had this as a desktop picture for a while and even on a boring flat-light evening, it still looked just as good in person. Right now, the sun starts dipping behind the trees about 6:30pm, shortly before that the forest is lit up well. The free viewpoint is quite good and has a parking lot or is a short walk from town, although it could do with better placed Seating. Not sure how the Baumwipfelpfad (tree tops walk with a 5-storey viewing platform) is as it shuts at 6pm, right about when the best views would be.

St. Peter's Cathedral (Dom)

This 11th-century Cathedral holds the tombs of several archbishops and displays an impressive collection of religious relics.

Reviewed By Jessie O - Oakland, California

This pair of remarkable churches will be sure to impress even the most cynical of frequent travelers. A true feast for the eyes, nearly 5 expansions are on display for you to pick apart. Both churches were damaged during WW2, so some authenticity was forcibly stripped away. This acts as a somber reminder of our recent history and adds a unique twist, however much I miss the authentic floors and windows.

The Family of Man

Reviewed By Hordern - Woking, United Kingdom

The Family of Man is a collection of over 500 photographs brought together by Edward Steichen in 1955 and now housed permently in Clervaux. It covers a wide range of subjects and is probably one of the best Exhibitions of this type in the world. It was well worth a visit but the experience could have been improved by making more information available.
Disabled access is good; avoid the normal signs and follow the disabled sign and you may be able to park next to the lift.

Chateau de Vianden

Reviewed By KansasTravelingdad - kansas

Getting from the bus stop up the hill is a challenge but the castle is well worth the effort. Fantastic visitor information center, the castle itself was easier than the Porto Nigra in Trier to walk. The restoration is outstanding. We spent 2.5 hours. The gift shop has a great selection for adults and children. This is a do not miss stop.

I had to think quite a bit before giving this one 3 out of 5, but in the end this is what it boils down to for me (we tried two of the three rooms and so can resonably eliminate the 'it was just a bad day for them factor'); the positive: the rooms are absolutely beautiful, probably among the best designed rooms that we've tried; attention to detail is amazing and the atmosphere is quite immersive; riddles too are well designed and quite witty in their conception; we had a lot of fun solving them; now the bad: both times the supervisors messed up in a significant way: first time they had prepared a riddle in another language and only noticed after we got stuck for 10 minutes, entering the room and completely ruining the atmosphere; second time they told us that certain elements were not part of the game, when in the end it was revealed that they were. Also, they gave us clues about a riddle that we had already resolved (both resulting in serious time losses - in the end they did not add additional time and chased us out just as 1h had lapsed); finally pacing: We are experienced escapers and are used to do runs at just the two of us, never with any trouble escaping in time. Enigmo are not paced for a two man team (despite pretending to be suitable) and are more of a 70-75 minute experience (first time we managed just in time, second time probs 10 minutes behind), which does lead to frustration, especially when they enter the room after 60 minutes and almost chase you out (both times they were not very friendly, despite having messed up both of them); this is all very sad, since the rooms themselves, as explained, are really quite good and with a little better pacing and professional staff would easily keep me going back for new rooms; as it stands, however I will not be going back to this place, since it left us underwhelmed both times we tried them.
