Type : Mullerthal Trail
The Mullerthal Trail with more than 112 km is composed by 3 big tracks (Route 1, Route 2, Route 3).
You can start Route 2 in Echternach. After a short but strenuous climb, you reach the viewpoint "Troosknäppchen" from which you can see the Basilica and the surroundings. The Mullerthal Trail then leads through Wolfsschlucht. You continue along the Aesbach brook and pass Perekop, a massive rock and then reach Hohllay. This is a cave which was used in former times to cut out the millstones. After that you reach the amphitheater, which is still used for theatric performances. You pass the beautiful locality of Berdorf and continue in the Schnellert forest towards the village of Mullerthal where one of the most important mills of the whole region was located. The Mullerthal Trail continues along the brook Black Ernz towards a little picturesque cascade called Schiessentümpel. From there you walk towards the east along Eulenburg, Goldfralay and Goldkaul which are spectacular rock formations worth a little rest. The Mullerthal Trail continues through rocks and woods towards an amazing crevice called Kohlscheuer. You then pass the villages of Consdorf and Scheidgen before arriving to Echternach again.
