A family friendly tour including a geologic highlight : the Champigon, Luxembourg's biggest mushroom!
On this short hiking trail you will reach one of the geological highlights of the region: the Champignon rock formation. This is a free-standing block of stone that is shaped like a mushroom. This shape was created naturally through weathering processes.
The hiking trail first leads through the forest where you go slightly up and down. The last part leads through an open landscape and back to the starting point. The tour is not stroller friendly as there are some stairs in the first half.
At the start, you cross the road and go to Rue du Knapp. After 200 m you turn left into the street Am Haandel, where you undertake a 1.6 km long ascent through a beautiful mixed forest. You then hike down a narrow forest path towards valley.There are some stairs on this section.
When you get to the main road, turn left. There you reach a prehistoric rock known as Champigoon, mushroom, which is near Aechelbour. It is the symbol of the municipality of Nommern. From this point the hiking trail leads back to the starting point via small country roads.
Sturdy shoes and something to drink.
