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.

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.

Parc Merveilleux

Reviewed By Somewhere_in_the_UK - Somewhere in the UK

Visited in July with 3 young children. The park offers a number of attractions: small zoo, various small rides and several large play areas. The play areas were the best we've come across yet. The main play area next to the restaurant is sandy based with lots of climbing frames and slides. There is also a brilliant water play area tucked just around the corner. Proceed a bit further into the park and there's another couple of play areas in the forest with further climbing frames and slides.
We left with some very tired and happy little children.
Restaurant leaves a bit to be desired with microwave reheated burgers being offered up after queuing for some time.

Abbey of Echternach

Reviewed By Willy B - Genk, Belgium

In the States it is known as the Washington 3 step, I guess, two steps forward, one step back. Echternach is famous for it's yearly Catholic procession that might have inspired the Phytons for one of their funny walks. The Abbey was founded by the Celtic Missionary Willibrord who is also burried here.

Bourscheid Castle

Reviewed By Nanny1plus8 - Michigan

What a great find in this beautiful, small country of Luxembourg! We could see it up on the hill from our hotel and decided to visit it. It is well-preserved with continuing updates to keep it that way. There is a small snack shop and gift shop as well as electronic devices in many languages to use as you are touring at your own pace. And the views are spectacular!

Jardin Des Papillons

Reviewed By pan_viator - Teignmouth, United Kingdom

We'd spent a few days looking at the historical bits, Castles, museums, etc. and wanted something a bit lighter. The butterfly farm was just right.
It's not especially big, but you can spend quite a while there, just sitting watching the wildlife. Mostly butterflys of course but also terrapins and birds.
We were there in October, so it was nice and warm on a cold day.
Try the cafe as well. The menu is fairly small but fine for a lunch time snack and good value considering there is a captive audience and not much else around as an alternative.

Le Chemin de la Corniche

Reviewed By Levanda - London, United Kingdom

Was very excited to visit here after Reading about this online. However didn’t even realise I was at the Corniche when actually there. It doesn’t stand out as a balcony yet just a high up street. The views are nice from here but no different from when in the caves. You can’t really avoid the Corniche when visiting Luxembourg as it’s such a small city.
