One of the most famous and most visited attractions in the Müllerthal is the Schiessentümpel. This waterfall with three cascades and picturesque stone bridge is found in the wild and romantic Luxembourg's Little Switzerland.
In the forests surrounding Berdorf (10 km from Larochette) you will find a variety of bizarrely shaped rock formations, carved by nature over millions of years. Just like the region's caves and hideouts, they bear names relating to their form or the legends that surround them, such as 'Zickzack Hideout', 'Robbers Cave', 'Wolf's Gorge' or 'Devil's Island'. A rock overhanging the road is called 'Pulpit' because of its mushroom-shaped appearance. Many of these places have names and stories, telling of ancient times, heroes and servants, knights and brigands, princes and princesses, magicians and ghosts, who died in these places or had been cursed.

 

The Müllerthal Region features a unique microclimate with permanent high humidity giving rise to an extraordinary vegetation; a number of rare plants growing here are found nowhere else in Europe.

The region's rock formations, babbling brooks, waterfalls and especially the wonderful forests are well worth visiting.
