If you are going to the lake in Echternach and you want to avoid the crowds while walking (Luxembourg has only 1% of the country's surface with standing water - lakes are not a typical feature of the landscape) I recommend the autopedestre number 2 walking trail around Lake Echternach. The trail is beautiful, scenic, with quite gentle slopes (the descent is more difficult than the entrance) and mostly paved. The reward for climbing over one hundred meters is a wonderful view of the lake and the southern part of the town.
In summer 2020, I walked the surprisingly beautiful blue autopedestre trail number 2 in Echternach. It leads north along the Sauer valley.
There are tons of fantastic hiking trails around Echternach. Three Autopedestre routes begin in the town. The famous Mullerthall is reachable within a few kilometers on foot. On the German side, it's also hard to complain about the lack of attractions for hiking fans ... however. There is a place that I got to know only thanks to the locals. An area with no hiking trails. A place where sometimes you may not meet anyone on forest roads ... These are the hills of the Ierelchen hill rising to the north of the town.
The microclimate of Echternach is very English. Every morning, fog sweeps across the Sauer Valley. Around 9:00, the sun clears the fog and depending on the weather, normal clouds or beautiful blue skies appear in the area. For fog fans, the conditions are great. A side effect of fogging is also a small amount of snow. Several days a year is snowed in in the Sauer Valley. In winter, it is enough to leave the valley to find huge snowy stretches of the Eifel mountains.
