STORY - Most of the travellers were once in Luxembourg. I was there already countless times in the past.
This small Duchy was for many years my second home where I stayed for a dozen times a year to write in peace. Many know probably the 'zimmer frei' rooms, or enjoyed together with their children, or as a child, funny days in one of the many campsites.
In the spring of 2014 I liked to do something else and I put on my hiking shoes, took my backpack and tent and decided to look with a different perspective and low budget eyes to Luxembourg. To move through the small country, I just would use my feet and public transportation. And I wanted to search for the unknown of the well-known, little country. My budget was 150 euro for 5 days 'Luxembourg all inclusive'.
I didn't prepared anything before and I had no idea what Luxembourg was going to offer me. This time I wanted to be surprised and each day I would decide again where I would go to the next day and would sleep. Given my limited budget I decided to take the train to the Belgian Arlon close to the border with Luxembourg. Close to the train station of Arlon I saw immediately the long-distance hiking trail GR 15. A short walk from less than two hours brought me through a green hilly landscape - with a small but tough slope - to Oberpallen just across the border.
In Oberpallen I took the bus to Luxembourg city. Besides the public transportation is very cheap in Luxembourg. A ticket 'courte durée' costs two euros and then you can use all buses and trains in Luxembourg for two hours. With a ticket 'longue durée' of four euros you can use unlimited the public transportation in Luxembourg whole the day.
