Local hiking trail - B1

Local hiking trail - B1

This challenging and varied hiking trail starts at Beaufort Castle. It leads through forests, along picturesque stream valleys and bizarre rock formations.

This hike starts at the castles of Beaufort. There is the medieval castle and the adjoining Renaissance castle. You can visit the medieval castle without prior notice. The very famous Cassero (liqueur made from black currant) is still made here. You take the path that leads over a wooden walkway in the direction of the Klingelbuer, the castle's former washing fountain.

After crossing a small village, you continue through the forest, along a stream, down into the Saueruecht natural forest reserve. Enjoy the beautiful view of the Sûre valley here.

Towards the end of the tour you reach the wild and romantic river valleys of the Haupeschbaach and the Halerbaach. Small wooden bridges, lush moss growth and huge boulders characterize this part. The highlight at the end of the tour is the view of the castle with the small pond in front of it.
