Fascination rocks

On a length of more than 112 km, the Mullerthal Trail passes through all the natural particularities of the Mullerthal Region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland. Natural paths are leading through forests and pastures and can be combined with impressive canyons and bizarre rock formations.

The 3 routes of the Mullerthal Trail each have their own character. The Mullerthal Trail meets the quality standards of modern hikers, with its mapped out, close-to-nature paths, beautiful views, natural attractions and constantly signposted tracks. In addition to this you find an extensive network of attractive local hiking trails. Selected tracks and circular hiking routes invite you to explore the region along the Sûre, the Black Ernz and the White Ernz. Guided hikes are also offered.
The trail is enhanced by the 4 Extratours which include additional interesting hiking routes.

Mullerthal Trail Route 3

!!!After heavy rains and due to logging or other forest work, some sections of the path can be very muddy and sometimes difficult to walk on. Therefore, please always think of sturdy shoes.!!!

The Mullerthal Trail with more than 112 km is composed by 3 big tracks (Route 1, Route 2, Route 3). 

In the locality of Mullerthal, Route 3 of the Mullerthal Trail is touching Route 2. Mullerthal is a good starting point for this route but also other villages like Beaufort, Medernach, Larochette or Heffingen can be used as departure point.

If you start in Mullerthal, you walk along the Black Ernz towards Beaufort crossing the beautiful valley of Halerbaach. From Halerbaach the brook becomes Haupeschbaach leading you right in front of the Castle of Beaufort. The impressive ruin certainly invites you for a visit during which you can also try the famous Cassero, a black currant liqueur still produced in the castle. There are several places to stop and rest in Beaufort.

The Mullerthal Trail takes you along the Halerbaach again out of Beaufort to walk to Medernach and then until Larochette.

In Larochette, the hiker is welcomed by the impressive ruin of the castle which gives the locality its unique shape. Larochette offers many places to have a rest and it’s worth taking a break in this picturesque place.

You then walk along the brook White Ernz towards Blumenthal, a part which lies on a high plateau and thus offers wonderful views.

From Blumenthal, the trail leads through the Marscherwald, a peaty, light beech forest and along the Black Ernz. Over a wooden bridge the hiker reaches an impressive Kallektuffquell (tavertine source).

You continue heading to Mullerthal. You arrive to Schéissendëmpel, a cute small cascade which was decribed already in Route 2. After almost 1 kilometer, you reach again the locality of Mullerthal.

Mullerthal Trail ExtraTour B

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 ExtraTour B is situated between Beaufort and the Valley of the Sûre. With its medieval castle, Beaufort is a good place to visit and spend some time. In the center of the locality, the walk starts towards Dillingen passing through an ancient quarry which had been re-activated lately. The tour then passes by Bigelbach where you have nice views on the Sûre valley. From Bigelbach you walk up again to the Beaufort plateau; at Berens, you will encounter the Mullerthal Trail again.
