Hiking trail GR 57
Follow one of the famous long-distance hikes!
The GR 57 was created in 1966 and connects Barchon in Belgium with Gilsdorf in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Since then, it has been one of the most visited and most appreciated hiking trails of the entire GR network.
The GR 57 runs along the river Ourthe along an entire stretch of 287.9 kilometers and crosses various tourist sites such as Hamoir, Hotton, La Roche-en-Ardenne, Houffalize, Gouvy, Troisvierges, Clervaux, Diekirch and Gilsdorf. It is located in the immediate vicinity of two railway lines, which makes it popular to day trippers.
After crossing the Ourthe springs in Belgium, the GR 57 merges with the ''Nordpfad'' in Luxembourg, where it crosses a particularly wild valley. This is formed successively by the Woltz, the Klierf, the Wiltz and the Sauer. In Diekirch the GR 57 flows into the GR 5, which connects the North Sea with the Mediterranean Sea.
