Attention! The hiking trail is temporarily closed due to construction work.


Discover on this trail the highlight of the region: the Schiessentümpel cascade with its romantic bridge.

This hiking trail leads to the landmark of the Mullerthal Region - Luxembourg's Little Switzerland: the Schiessentümpel cascade. It is the most popular destination in the region and can best be reached on foot. Behind the Schiessentümpel there is a modern staircase construction, which was built to make the Schiessentümpel accessible again after the severe storms of 2018.

From there, you hike over the plateau between Christnach and Waldbillig, offering you wide views of fields and meadows. The last stretch back to the starting point leads through the forest again, along the imposing sandstone cliffs that are typical of the Mullerthal Region - Luxembourg's Little Switzerland.
