Local hiking trails

Five local paths are way-marked.

Trail A

The 7.5km-long (4.7 miles) trail A starts in Ettelbruck the city centre, and then leads through a forest to Grentzingen and on to the “Karelshaff”. Once you have reached the highest point (with a positive height difference of 184 metres), you will be rewarded with a magnificent view of Ettelbruck and its surroundings.

Trail A is not recommended for small children or people with restricted mobility due to the relatively steep ascent and the street crossings. Since the forest path can be uneven and soft, especially after rainy weather, walking shoes are indispensable.

Trail B

Path B (distance: 7.2km – 4.5 miles, height difference: 188 metres) starts from Camping Kalkesdelt to the Wellerbësch Forest, and gives a splendid view of the “Haupeschhaff” and the surroundings of Ettelbruck.

From the “Schass” plateau onwards, the trail is identical to trail A.

Suggestion: If you wish to extend your walk, you can also follow the signposts for trail A in the opposite direction and walk through Karelshaff, Mederhaff and Grentzingen, finally returning to Ettelbruck. So instead of turning left and following the CR305 towards Ettelbruck, you turn right and follow the CR305 to the Karelshaff.

Trail B is not recommended for small children and people with restricted mobility because of the relatively steep climb and because the path runs alongside roads on occasions. Since the forest path can be uneven and soft, especially after rainy weather, walking shoes are indispensable.

Path C

Trail C leads you to the “Lopert” plateau, where the remains of the “Kalléksuewen” bear witness to the limestone quarries of yesteryear. Passing over the “Schoofsbréck” bridge in Warken, the trail leads through forests back to Ettelbruck.

Trail C is not recommended for small children and people with restricted mobility due to the narrow and steep forest paths. Since the forest path can be uneven and soft, especially after rainy weather, walking shoes are indispensable.

Trail D

Path D is 5.8km (3.6 miles) long, leads to the Patton Monument, then through a small forest to the “Haard” (height difference: 138 metres). Here you can enjoy a unique view of Ettelbruck and its surroundings, and if you wish, exert yourself on the fitness trail in the middle of an attractive natural environment.

Trail D is not recommended for small children and people with restricted mobility due to the relatively steep ascent. Since the forest path can be uneven and soft, especially after rainy weather, walking shoes are indispensable.

On the way back, we recommend a visit to the General Patton Memorial Museum and a shopping tour of the more than 80 shops in the pedestrianised zone.
