With an area of slightly more than 2,500 square kilometers, Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in the entire world. In spite of this small size, however, there are still plenty of great outdoor activities to try out.
The most popular are hiking and trail running in the summer. In fact, Luxembourg boasts several popular long distance trails, including the aforementioned Escapardenne Eislek Trail.
Away from these long distance trails, there are plenty of other great places to explore. Among the hiking hot spots in the little country is Oesling, which is home to many medieval castles and ancient villages. Hiking through the hills and passing through these towns is the perfect way to disconnect from Europe’s busy urban areas and reconnect with its natural splendor.
Luxembourg exhibits a mostly Western European Continental Climate. The small country has mild winters and fairly cool summers with high amounts of rainfall.
Any trip to Luxembourg begins with a flight into the Luxembourg Airport (LUX), which can be reached directly from most European airports. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive on to the final destination.
Year round, although May to October are the most popular months for its various outdoor activities.
