Another side trip by car led us to Echternach, which is located about 35 km northeast of Luxembourg-City, just at the border to Germany.

It is the oldest town in Luxembourg and therefore has some historic sights to offer. Among them is the Abbey of Echternach whose history dates back to the 7th century.

The other church worth seeing in town is the parish church of St. Peter and Paul.

Another highlight of Echternach is its market square which is surrounded by ancient buildings like the Gothic Old Town Hall (15th century).
