Experience culture in Éislek

Guided tours: experience history and culture up close

Visit Éislek and its partners offer a wide range of guided tours that introduce visitors to the history and culture of the region. The charming towns of Esch-sur-Sûre, Clervaux, Wiltz and Vianden invite you to explore their historic old quarters, imposing castles and picturesque alleyways. Those interested in culture can immerse themselves in the world of photography at "The Family of Man" exhibition in Clervaux, a part of the UNESCO World Documentary Heritage.

Accompanied by a trained guide, each tour is an unforgettable experience. With in-depth knowledge and exciting stories, the past is brought to life and participants can discover Éislek in all its facets. They will gain exclusive insights, insider tips and anecdotes that would remain hidden during an individual excursion.

An additional tip: To mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, visit the historic Schumannseck battlefield. History buffs can experience a moving guided tour here, during which 65 life-size silhouettes, remains such as foxholes and bomb craters as well as the explanations of an experienced guide bring the history of the fierce battles to life.

All of these tours can be booked via Guided tours.

Adventure tours: immerse yourself in times gone by

In addition to the classic guided tours, Visit Éislek also offers unique adventure tours. Follow in the footsteps of the post riders in Asselborn, explore the escape routes of the Resistance on the "Sentier des Passeurs" or let the wise "Els" guide you through the impressive Bourscheid fortress. Immerse yourself in the world of the miners on a tour of the copper mine in Stolzemburg.

All these tours can be booked via Guided tours.
