Stage 1
Dillingen

This tour takes you to geological highlights in the Nature and Geopark Mëllerdall. Explore rocks and crevices and learn about the creation of the fantastic landscape.

We recommend to select a maximum of two out of the three suggested hikes (Steekaul Beefort, Noumerleeën, Kuelscheier).

You start in Echternach and drive on the national road N10 to the west, alongside the Sûre via Bollendorf-Pont to Dillingen. In Dillingen you turn left and drive up the hill towards Beaufort. After 2.3 km, you park on the right side on a gravel parking lot. From here take the wide gravel path (the right of the two ones which are marked with “NaturWanderPark delux”) and follow it for almost  300 m. Then turn sharp right and follow the sign “Mullerthal Trail ExtraTour” to “Steekaul/Steinbruch”. You will walk to  Steekaul Beefort, a former sandstone quarry and then back to the parking lot (length of the walk: 2.6 km).
