Discovering the Mullerthal

Often referred to as Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland, the Mullerthal Region – or Mëllerdall in Luxembourgish – owes this name to its hilly landscape reminiscent of Switzerland. The Mullerthal region is first and foremost an exceptional biotope marked by surprising rock formations. The composition of the rock and its erosion have contributed to the creation of this landscape, so typical of Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland.

The diversity of the natural and geological heritage makes the region so special. To this end, the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall was founded in 2016, and since 2022 has been part of the international UNESCO Global Geoparks network.The Mullerthal Trail, awarded the “Quality Trails – Best of Europe” label takes the experienced hiker 112 km through a magnificent hilly region. Dotted with rock formations with bizarre names – Piteschkummer, Geierslee or Huellee, to name but a few – the hiking trails of the Mullerthal Region lead through fields and forests into the heart of unspoilt nature. As well as challenging hikes, the Mullerthal Region offers a network of pleasant walks through breathtaking panoramas.

Europ’Aventure offers you the opportunity to discover the 3 main loops of the Mullerthal in 6 stages, and takes care of all the logistics. You can also choose to do just one or two curls if you prefer. Just ask us. We’ll tailor your stay to your wishes.
