Are you looking for a challenge for the whole family and do you enjoy spending time in nature? Then the "Donkey Challenge" in Diekirch is just right for you.

The Donkey Challenge consists of three exciting tours: Donkey Challenge Haard, Donkey Challenge Seitert, and Donkey Challenge Härebierg. Each of these tours gives you the opportunity to conquer the three impressive mountains of Diekirch and enjoy the beauty and diversity of nature.

Along the paths, you will not only discover fascinating landscapes but also gain interesting information about Diekirch, its rich history, and the local fauna and flora. If you complete all three tours, you can celebrate your success with a special memento. At the Diekirch Tourist Info, an exclusive patch featuring the Donkey of Diekirch awaits you.

Audio and information

Nature adventure park

Here, we take a small side trip into the nature adventure park which provides detailed information on the flora and fauna of this nature reserve. Thank you for contributing to taking care of the environment of Diekirch, especially for keeping the paths clean during the entire challenge.

Deiwelselter

We are now coming to the “Deiwelselter”, which means “devil's altar”. However, this place doesn't have anything to do with the devil The remarkable stone gate we are looking at today is built on a dolmen which is about as old as 4000 years, according to scientific studies. Even though the “Deiwelselter” still leaves room for mysteries, we know that originally it didn't look the way it does today. It is likely that it once was a tomb, for the remains of two human skeletons dating from different epochs have been found here. The “Deiwelselter” as you see it now was rebuilt from big stone blocks which were laying around here in 1892 and has been a landmark of Diekirch ever since.

That's why this is a perfect spot for a selfie as proof!
