|9| Larochette - Beaufort
From castle to castle is the motto of this section of the Mullerthal Trail. The starting point is the “Place Bleech” of Larochette. The Mullerthal Trail crosses the square and leads behind the church up to the woods. After a short but steep climb, the hiker may enjoy a final glance on the castle (1). From there, the trail first passes through a light beech forest and continues to rise up to the plateau on which the hiker walks through a largely open landscape - past meadows, fields and farms. After a short forest followed by a tail-lined section at the end, the highest point of the hike is reached. Once there, a 360° panoramic view (2) rewards the constant rise. Thereafter the hike goes through a forest path up to Berens. Here the Mullerthal Trail develops into a narrow path that leads to “Aleweier” (3), on the banks of which a picnic area invites the hikers to rest. The path then runs along rock formations to an old washing area, the “Klingelbur” (4). Here the end of this stage, Beaufort (5) castle, can be seen from a distance for the first time.
