Description

Refreshment stops available
The hike leads without exception through the nature reserve "Manternacher Fiels". Rare plants grow in the cool, shady forest. Particularly impressive are the huge rock layer at the Michelslay and the passage through the narrow notch valley of the Schlammbach. In between are exceptional distant views and a vineyard in the middle of the forest. The nature conservation centre "A Wiewesch" is located in a former farmhouse in Manternach.

This exciting trail leads mostly through the Manternacher Fiels nature reserve. From the starting point at Burfeld, you climb up into the nature reserve and enter an impressive ravine forest. The location of the forest on the shady slope of the "Fielsmillen" ensures high humidity and coolness. Deadwood lies above a sea of limestone boulders, all of which are covered in thick layers of moss. The remains of an old mill can be found in the Syr valley. Above the former timber mill, in the middle of the forest, is the Manternacher Fiels vineyard. A little later, the mighty limestone cliffs are the next destination. The rocks, which are covered in ivy, lichen and moss, tower up to 50 metres high. Behind the Michaelslay, over 100 steps carved into the rock lead further upwards. The next highlights are the viewpoints on the Lelliger Plateau and the hike through the deep valley of the Schlammbachtal. The valley is also known by locals as "the little canyon", as the water plunges wildly into the depths over rocks and wood. This is followed by a delightful descent through former vineyard terraces, where the old steps of the vineyard walls are used for hiking.
