Discover the Our Valley

The Our. The Our River is the natural border between Luxembourg and Germany and borders the municipality of Clervaux on its eastern flank. It creates wild and quiet landscapes ideal for hikers and nature lovers. Don't forget to bring your picnic. You'll be spoilt for choice as to the best spot to put your feet in the water and let the kids have their fun. 

If you're lucky, you'll have the opportunity to see the rich biodiversity of the area: wild cats, martens, deer and a whole range of birds that find rest here.  

Starting points

To discover the Our valley, you can start from:

- Roder and Heinerscheid and follow a hiking trail (see below)

- The 3 borders monument near Lieler and the Georges Wagner bridge

- The Kalborn mill, a place for the conservation of biodiversity

- Camping Tintesmühle

The views

There are two viewpoints along the Our. But don't be afraid to climb!

- Kasselslay viewpoint: By zigzagging from the Tintesmühle campsite or coming from Heinerscheid, you will reach the Kasselslay viewpoint, offering an open landscape over the valley. This place has been known for centuries, as ancient Celtic fortifications are still standing here. 

- Königslei (DE): Located in Germany, 200m from Luxembourg, this other viewpoint, situated a little further down the Our, offers a rest and contemplation area.
