The forest of Anlier.

The walk starts along the banks of the Sûre to the Passerelle Des Oiseaux. You walk on a nice plank path to the watchtower. From the tower you have a beautiful view of the valley. The route goes through the village of Martelange where you pass the oldest house of the village from 1598. Via the Rue De L'Eglise you start a steep climb. This is immediately the most boring part of the walk. The walk now enters the forest of Anlier and you soon arrive at the chapel of Saint Nicolas. The route descends to the N4, which you follow for a very short distance. Through the forest of Anlier you walk on wide unpaved forest roads to the old Roman road. You follow the road for a time to a nice picnic spot. The descent to the village begins on a beautiful forest path.
