1. Luxembourg City
The city of Luxembourg is a cosmopolitan, culturally exciting and green capital. Built on impressive historical foundations, an UNESCO World Heritage and a vibrant capital that reflects a fusion of tradition and modernity. A place where people from 170 different nationalities are on the move daily.
Minett region, also known as the Land of the Red Rocks. With its rich industrial past, modern architecture now projects energetically skywards between the disused blast furnaces. Nature is reclaiming the land and has earned the region the UNESCO Biosphere reserve label. The entire region can be hiked in several stages along the new 90-km Minett Trail.
Stay the night!
Overnights are available at the 'Kabaisercher' hiking huts, located along the Minett Trail. Among the huts are a restored former industrial building, train car and a floating glass cube.
At the gates of the capital, lies an enchanting landscape of charming villages with many restored farmhouses, imposing castles and mysterious fortresses. This region offers peace and quiet, despite being geographically the centre of the country.
In the far north of the country, the Eislék region impresses with its lush forests, green hills, deep valleys and windy plateaus. You can once again wear your hiking boots on the "Best of Europe - Leading Quality Trail", such as the cross-border "Escapardenne Eislek Trail" or the "Lee Trail" and the "Eislek Pied" (Eislek trails)
In the Mullerthal region, also known as Luxembourg's Little Switzerland, discover the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall, a UNESCO Global Geopark, a geological heritage of imposing sandstone cliffs with narrow fissures and deep gorges, as well as a great diversity of plants.
The river Moselle forms the natural border between Luxembourg and Germany. On the slopes of the Moselle valley, the vineyards are particularly flourishing and the region enjoys an international reputation as a wine region for its excellent white wines and crémants.
