International Trails in Luxembourg
Two long-distance European footpaths cross Luxembourg, following the course of the national footpaths. These are the E2/GR5 European footpath, which links the Netherlands to the Mediterranean, and the E3, which stretches from the Bohemian Forest to the Atlantic. Luxembourg is also situated on the Way of St. James (or El Camino de Santiago), a Christian pilgrimage route. On the 160 km Luxembourg stretch of the trail, pilgrims pass Roman roads and watercourses on the way to sites where the cult of St. James of Compostela is celebrated. These include famous pilgrimage destinations like the basilica that houses the tomb of Saint Willibrord in Echternach, Luxembourg Cathedral and Dudelange Castle, which once belonged to the evangelical order of St. John of Jerusalem.
