Mullerthal Region, Luxembourg's Little Switzerland

Magical rock formations and footpaths

Dense woodlands criss-crossed by rushing streams, extraordinary biotopes with towering sandstone formations, narrow rocky ravines, mysterious caves and gorges and an amazing variety of plants and trees: welcome to the Mullerthal also known as ‘Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland’.

The best way for hikers to discover these landscapes is on the 112-kilometre Mullerthal Trail. The geological legacy and the enormous variety of plants are best seen in the Mëllerdall Nature & Geopark, which was awarded with the UNESCO Global Geopark label in 2022. The Mullerthal is a magical place with long-established traditions: several of the award-winning hiking trails actually have their origins in the 19th century.

Hopping procession of Echternach

Many paths lead to Echternach, the historical and cultural centre of the Mullerthal region. The largest town in the region is the home of one of Luxembourg’s most important traditions. At the Echternach Hopping Procession on Whit Tuesday of every year, thousands of people dance around the great abbey in a unique hopping step accompanied by traditional music. The procession was awarded UNESCO World Cultural Heritage status in 2010.

A classic trail calls!
