Berdorf Things to Do

  • Tourist Office

    If you plan on doing a hike then you may want to visit the friendly man in the tourist office. They have a free map (photocopied sheet) of Berdorf which indicated the starting points of the hikes. Alternatively, you can buy a proper map of the hiking paths in little Switzerland. I told the man that I was from Switzerland and he gave me the postcard...

  • Perekop

    If you are lazy and don't want to hike you can just drive to Perekop and park there to have a look. Perekop is a giant rocky facade which can be climbed and you can hike from there into a side valley.

  • Tour Malakof

    The hike through the Aesbech valley is very pretty and pleasant. It's shady and you can hear the birds sing. The rocky outcrop by the name of Malakof looks like a giant mushroom.

  • Houllay

    Now this cave is interesting. Today it's about 360 square meters but it's entirely man made. Already during Roman times people drilled millstones out of this limestone.

  • Amphitheatre

    After a shortish walk through the forest we reached the first sight - the amphitheatre. Sometimes there are actually performences as there are benches in front of the stage.

  • Hiking

    To get to some of the beautiful sights in little Switzerland we took hiking path B1 from Berdorf. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes or some kind of hiking boots. BTW, we didn't buy a hiking map for our 2 hr hike but I photographed the map hanging in the car park, so that we knew where to go.

  • Mairie (town hall)

    Village town hall are always sturdy well shaped buildings. This one is opposite the church. Coming from the tourist information (tourist office or maps posted by the car park) walk past the Mairie (on your left) and then turn left. Then you are at the start of the hike we did.

  • St. Johann church

    The tower of the church stands entirely separate. To take a picture of the tower you need to follow the main road a bit further and then you enter someone's porch. I was surprised by the mosaic in the church.

  • Hohllay / Houllay

    This is an interesting little grotto. It's assumed that during the Roman period, people here have cut big rocks for mills - you can see the traces of it. Only some steps away is the "Amphitheater", another little grotto with some benches in front of it, perhaps some events take place there.From the parking at Perekop, it's not too long and a nice...

  • Labyrinthe

    The "Labyrinth" is a concentration of several rocks, but you don't have to fear to get lost! There are only some interesting rocks! It is some minutes away from the parking at the Perekop, you just have to follow the signs and go down the river Aesbach. We did it the other way round - from Perekop to Geierslay, then down to the Aesbach again and...

  • Geierslay

    From the "rock" there, called "Geierslay", you would have a nice view on the Sûre valley - if the trees weren't so high! Must be perfect in winter! But at least we could see a little bit...You can reach Geierslay if you park at Perekop and go up there. Turn left and soon you will reach the sign to Geierslay. At this sign you have to turn right -...

  • Hiking around the Perekop

    On the picture you see the Perekop. Several steps lead up the rock, where you'll find a platform. I was surprised to see how high we already were after climbing up the stairs! There are much more interesting rock formation to see in near environment, like Geierslay, Labyrinth and Houllay. We walked there 2,5 hours to see them. You'll find signs to...

    The most convenient way to get to Berdorf is by car. We took the road from Echternach. That way we already saw why Berdorf lies in Luxemburgian Switzerland. Alternatively, there are also buses.

    Berdorf is very rural and there are farms around it. Starting our hike we got scrutinized by these lovely ladies.
