Walking weekend in three regions

Programme suggestions for travel professionals – groups and individuals

DAY 1: Éislek
Bestemming(en): Éislek

Morning:

Discover the Éislek (Luxembourg Ardennes and its nature parks)

The Éislek region in the north of Luxembourg is criss-crossed by valleys and high plateaus offering panoramic views. This unique and largely unspoilt landscape offers numerous walking and cycling trails, leading from one picturesque village to the next and opening up very special journeys of discovery to visitors. Also known as the Luxembourg Ardennes, the Éislek region is the cradle of a medieval culture whose traces are still visible today.
 

Our tip:

Naturwanderpark Delux – Guided hiking tours

If you are an enthusiastic walker who has always dreamed of exploring the Éislek on foot, you will delight in walking the premium hiking trails of Naturwanderpark Delux in the company of local guides. You can decide on the level of difficulty and how long the walk will be. The guides will share their knowledge of the region’s culture and natural treasures with you. Other services, such as picnic baskets filled with local products and guided tours of the sites along the way, are available on request.

Guided tour – City Tour Vianden

If there is one destination in the Grand Duchy that stands out above them all it is the town of Vianden.

Breathtaking landscapes and warm hospitality

Morning:

Dream loop hike

“Traumschleifen”, or dream loops, are some of Europe’s best hiking routes. The Luxembourg Moselle offers three such trails: “Schengen Grenzenlos”, “Wein- und Naturpfad Palmberg Ahn” and “Manternacher Fiels”. They criss-cross vineyards, nature reserves and cool, shady forests, and traverse high plateaus offering breathtaking views. The dream loops are varied and captivating: perfect for exploring the countryside by foot.

The Moselle is known for its regional cuisine, award-winning wines and sparkling Crémants, organic winegrowers and schnapps distilleries, wine taverns and tranquil towns and villages on and near the river bank. All of these invite you to come and sample their wares after your walk.
