Local hiking trail - E4

General information

In this tour you see the oldest city in Luxembourg & one of the geological highlights of the region. There are two spectacular views on top.

Attention! This hiking trail is partly rerouted. A detour is in place on site. Please follow the signs on site.

You start in the middle of the old town of Echternach, at the basilica. The first and most strenuous ascent of the hike is rewarded with a unique view over Echternach. The next highlight follows only a short time later: the Wolleffsschlucht. This is a steeply sloping, smooth crevice through which the hiking trail winds.

The first half of the tour leads mostly through the forest. You shouldn't miss the "Geierslee", a lookout point with a wooden pavilion, from where you have a wide view of the Sûre valley.

You descend then to the valley of the Sûre and hike next to it for a while. At the end, the path leads to the municipal park of Echternach and you get back to the basilica through the grounds of the former abbey.
