Description

This tour combines the oldest city of Luxembourg with two of the region's most impressive geological highlights: the Wollefsschlucht near Echternach and the Huel Lee in Berdorf.

 The tour runs on a scenic route through forests and between rocks in the area between Echternach and Berdorf. Special features of the tour include the Wollefsschlucht, the Huel Lee, the Amphitheater and the valley of the Aesbach.

The Wolfsschlucht is a steep crevice through which you are hiking. 

From the Middle Ages to the 19th century, millstones were taken out for the mills in the region in Hul Lee and Breechkaul (now the Amphitheater). The traces can still be seen today as striking patterns in the rock.

The tour is quite demanding (ascent from Echternach to the Berdorfer Plateau) and takes about 4 hours. Sturdy shoes are strongly recommended. Only some sections can also be hiked (e.g. only Echternach - Berdorf or vice versa). There are regular bus connections between Berdorf and Echternach.
