Luxembourg is known for having an incredible amount of walking and cycling paths. Although Luxembourg is a small country, it offers a lot of variety in natural sites. On a single adventure, you can wander through mesmerising forests, pass interesting rock formations and visit small villages that you have probably never heard of.
Discovering Luxembourg on foot has never been easier!
During the early 1930s, the Ministry of Tourism created a significant network of national footpaths to link the country’s main tourist centers. Since then, the network has significantly been extended. Youth hostels associations have created additional paths, and the Ministry of Tourism as well as local tourism boards maintain the walkways.
With the “Guide Auto-Pédestre Luxembourg – 201 Circular walks”, you will find a total of 1,708 km of hiking paths organised according to region, locality names and distances. The guide is trilingual (GER/FR/EN) and simplifies the choice of the route that fits what you are looking for. You could, for instance, choose an easier shorter path and combine it with a small-town visit or go for a longer, more intense hiking adventure.
The best part: all circular walks are signposted with a blue triangle on a white background which makes it almost impossible to get lost.
An alternative to the physical guidebook is the website www.visitluxembourg.com. Many of the trails in the book are also available on the website for free. You can even download an app on which you can follow the path digitally. While that is a great tool in case you do get lost, the adventure of spending time in a disconnected environment is very attractive. Furthermore, we love that the book with its maps and beautiful pictures invites you to hike on paths that you would never have chosen on your own.
Either way, tie up those hiking boots and get excited for new adventures!
