Visit Echternach - Best of Echternach

Welcome to the oldest town in Luxembourg. Its 5,000-person population means that the small town retains its quaintness. Nestled in a forested hilly plain alongside the Sauer River, which serves as the border with Germany, the town has existed since its inception in 698. It began with the advent of the monastery, which exists to this day and forms the backbone of the town’s attraction. Although WWII saw much destruction, later train tracks brought renewed interest in the town and a concerted restoration effort. The urban plan is also quite attractive, and provides an impossibly serene setting for a walking tour.
