The full Mullerthal Trail is 112 kilometers long, and consists of three different routes, that all can be combined. This makes the Mullerthal Trail suitable for a weekend, a long weekend, or even a week!

Mullerthal Trail Route 1 is 36 kilometers long, which will take you approximately 12 hours in total. This route starts in Echternach and can be best described as a sightseeing route. This route combines the forest, the meadows, and the rock formations around Echternach. This route can easily be split up into two stages, with one overnight stay in Metzdorf.

Mullerthal Trail Route 2 is 38 kilometers long, which will take you about 15 hours in total. This route is, just like Route 1, starting in Echternach and is dominated by rock formations. This trek is considerably more challenging than Route 1, due to the climbing and height differences. You don't have to worry about the logistics of booking accommodation along the route, as we will arrange this for you. The only thing you then have to do is to enjoy this beautiful landscape.
