Thank you for all of this information! Would you recommend we take the bus or the train from Luxembourg City?

Paulina On the road • 2 years ago

Many thanks for your comment. Unfortunately there is no train connection from Lux City. There is only a bus connection, line 110 and 111. In case you want to hike in the Mullerthal, I recommend 111 and get out in Berdorf. Hiking down from Berdorf to Echternach is a lovely experience. Check the schedule of 110 here:https://www.mobiliteit.lu/s...

I do have two more questions. Is the hike from Berdorf to Echternach the downhill portion! I see it is listed as a hard hike and I will have my 75 yr old grandma with me. I am thinking she can do it but just thinking it through. How long on average would you say this hike takes? Thank you again. You are extremely helpful!

Paulina On the road • 2 years ago

Yes, Berdorf to Echternach is downhill. I think it is a rather easy hike, but might take max 3h (maybe 4 if climb up the rocks and depending on how long you stay at the viewpoints etc). Trails are really well indicated and there are usually no obstacles like fallen trees etc.. I don't know how fit your grandma is, but it is definitely an easy hike. There are a lot of benches too, where you can rest and fuel up.

We are planning a visit to your beautiful city in September and would like to drive to the market place. Where would we park our car? Thanks

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Thanks a lot for your sweet comment. In case you want to see the market place (and the rest of the city) I would park the car next to la Gare (Bus Station) or at the Rue du Pont. There is a large square, via this link you can see the exact adress: https://www.google.com/maps...

Please let me know if I can help you with something else. Enjoy!!

I do not know that Luxembourg has Portuguese influence and Portuguese festival looks a lot of fun with dance and the great food. Explore your hometown is a great idea as we always take our own backyard for granted, but do not know it has so much to offer. Thanks for this informative piece about Echternach, its annual festivities, the old abbey, stunning hiking trails and delicious wine, and that is what makes it a beautiful place to visit.

Thanks a lot for your comment! The Portuguese festival is truely fun, it's a large reunion of Portuguese expatriates from all over the region. And as you said, it's a part of Luxembourg you wouldn't expect. And if you enjoy hiking, this is paradise for you ;)

Vivid description and lovely pictures. I particularly liked "Thoull" Viewpoint - Mirador "Thoull". Thanks for sharing. I am too in the same boat as you were. After living an expat life for a while I am exploring my own den :P

That's a strange feeling, isn't it? Which place are you returning to?

Sonal Kwatra • 3 years ago

Awesome stuff! I'd love to hike there. The dancing procession looks like a lot of fun. I've never seen one in real life.

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Echternach and its region are a paradise for hikers. As far as I know the Dancing Procession is the only one in the world. :)

Very beautiful town! I know the feeling of coming back after a long time and see your own place with the eyes of a stranger. I might stop by next time in Luxembourg.

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

That's a good idea! Luxembourg is definitely worth a visit ;)

Luxembourg is stunning! I wish I could visit it soon too. Like you I also try to go around the city by walking or by riding a bike. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Yes you should definitely visit! It's a small but very beautiful country. A true hidden gem ;)
