Freelance writer Sally Perkins offers up City Savvy readers 3 creative hiking date ideas!
The country of Luxembourg is known for luxury, abundant greenery, relaxation, adventure, and romance. Luxembourg is the perfect setting in which to create a memorable date full of adventure and romance while trekking through one of several popular hiking trails. You’ll find gorgeous scenery and tranquility to set your date off on the right foot on these three Luxembourg hiking trails.
Mullerthall Trail Route 2
The Mullerthall Trail is the most well-known set of hiking paths in Luxembourg, leading through the Mullerthall region. With its rocky formations, hilled landscape, and lush greenery, the area is more commonly known as Little Switzerland. The trails consist of three large loops, which can become smaller hiking trails if preferred.
Trail Route 2 offers a good mix of romance and adventure that are the perfect ingredients for a hiking date. The route is somewhat challenging as you’ll meet caves, brooks, and rocky formations. But, the scenery of waterfalls, lush forests, old abandoned mills, and beautiful villages sets the right mood. You’ll find tranquility in the quiet sounds of nature, and you can rest in caves, on rocks near the water, or on small bridges overlooking the green, wooded areas of Little Switzerland.
Echternach, Mullerthall Trail
Another must-see along the Mullerthall Trail, Echternach is rich with natural green surroundings, fascinating Luxembourg history, and abandoned romantic castles. Hiking through the woods or village of Echternach can make for the perfect romantic date. The village itself captures much of the historic charm that makes people fall in love with Luxembourg- and maybe with one another. You can enjoy peaceful walks through the town, which is closed to vehicle traffic, to visit local shops, eateries, and view the architecture.
The hiking trails that begin in Echternach will also make the perfect backdrop for a romantic date. Loop around old castles, massive canyons, and small villages, or visit Sandstone Cliff. This adventurous hike will lead you through tranquil forests and to breathtaking rock formations.
Felsenweg 1, NaturWanderPark Delux
Another popular hiking destination in Luxembourg is NaturWanderPark Delux, which has nine routes that cross the border into Germany. Felsenweg 1 is a trail along the Circular Walk. Here, you and your date can have plenty of rest stops to take in your surroundings.
Felsenweg 1 is a favorite trail for viewing local wildlife, flora, and fauna species. Continue along the trail to hike wooden staircases, check out unique caves, or run through gorgeous meadows. The Baroque Weilerbach Castle is also nestled along the path, surrounded by French-inspired gardens that can easily become the perfect spot for a romantic date.
