Type : NaturWanderPark Delux
The Our Valley can always be counted on for a varied hiking experience. It meanders through a grandiose, ancient landscape of tall hills and low mountains. The Our has shown itself to be a master in the art of landscaping. The rocky trail along the Lätges Mountain at the German-Luxembourgish border provides almost Alp-like vistas. And after all the ups and downs, the Our Valley artificial lake – the lower reservoir of the Vianden pumped-storage hydroelectric plant – with its shore promenade and the roads along the Our in Bivels are a welcome opportunity to take a restful stroll. The ruins of Falkenstein Castle hold court on a rocky promontory high above the Our bend. And just a few steps downriver is the medieval town of Vianden with its restored castle – one of Europe’s largest and most beautiful.
