Mullerthal Trail Route 3
LENGTH 37 KM LEVEL MEDIUM
In the locality of Mullerthal, Route 3 of the Mullerthal Trail is touching Route 2. Mullerthal is a good starting point for this route but also other villages like Beaufort, Medernach, Larochette or Heffingen can be used as departure point.
If you start in Mullerthal, you walk along the Black Ernz towards Beaufort crossing the beautiful valley of Hallerbach. From Hallerbach the brook becomes Haupeschbach leading you right in front of the Castle of Beaufort. The impressive ruin certainly invites you for a visit during which you can also try the famous Cassero, a black currant liqueur still produced in the castle. There are several places to stop and rest in Beaufort.
The Mullerthal Trail takes you along the Hallerbach again out of Beaufort to walk to Medernach and then until Larochette.
In Larochette, the hiker is welcomed by the impressive ruin of the castle which gives the locality its unique shape. Larochette offers many places to have a rest and it’s worth taking a break in this picturesque place.
You then walk along the brook White Ernz towards Blumenthal, a part which lies on a high plateau and thus offers wonderful views.
From Blumenthal, the trail leads through the Marscherwald, a peaty, light beech forest and along the Black Ernz. Over a wooden bridge the hiker reaches an impressive Tavertine source.
You continue heading to Mullerthal. You arrive to Schiessentümpel, a cute small cascade which was decribed already in Route 2. After almost 1 kilometer, you reach again the locality of Mullerthal.
A walking map on the Mullerthal Trail as well as on all the local hikes is available in the region.
