Two outings in three days! Look at us go!
We're trying to make a better effort to "do stuff" on the weekends now that we have a car and the weather is improving, fitting in some short outings after Saturday church band practice and/or Sunday church. We finally made it out to Little Switzerland today, a lovely forested area in the northeast of Luxembourg.
I've never been to Normal Switzerland, but this particular area of Luxembourg has some similar rock formations and topography. From the half-hearted Wikipedia page, I get the sense that the comparison may be a bit of a stretch. (Perhaps it was written by a Swiss person.)
Nonetheless, this was a breathtaking spot, and we're already making plans to go back soon to do a proper hike, armed with our freshly purchased trail map.
|Our friend gave us the tip to park at Camping Martbusch, north of Berdorf. I'm only mentioning it because it was difficult to find this specific sort of info online.|
We wandered in the general direction of the forest and found a viewpoint nearby.
From there it was easy to see where to head down between the rocks.
|There's a metal ladder down there to the next level here. Not stroller-friendly.|
|The rocks soon opened to forest and a network of trails.|
|We stuck close to the rocks near where we climbed down and did some general exploring.|
|There were a couple "holes" like this, and we saw several serious hikers go down with headlamps. We just took a quick peek with the flashlights on our phones.|
|lots of great spots for kid climbing|
|Regular Switzerland must be beautiful!|
