ExtraTour A (link: tourisme.geoportail.lu) is linked on the western part to the Mullerthal Trail and connects the localities of Larochette, Nommern and Medernach. The walk between Medernach and Larochette is actually part of the Mullerthal Trail. Due to its situation between the rocks, Larochette is a well known place for excursions.

From Larochette you walk through the woods towards Meysembourg Castle. From here, you walk on beautiful meadows towards Nommerlayen. The impressive rock formations of Nommerlayen are well known by hikers and here you definitely need good walking shoes. From Nommern, you continue towards the forest of Seitert to Medernach to reach again the Mullerthal Trail. There are places to have a rest in Nommern as well as in Medernach.

In the center of the locality, the walk starts towards Dillingen passing through an ancient quarry which had been re-activated lately.

The tour then passes by Bigelbach where you have nice views on the Sûre valley. From Bigelbach you walk up again to the Beaufort plateau; at Berens, you will encounter the Mullerthal Trail again.

ExtraTour C (link: tourisme.geoportail.lu) connects the localities of Bech and Altrier with the Mullerthal Trail. In Bech, you pass the old railway station (Bech Gare) which had been transformed into a chalet (place to rest) and then pass a tunnel of 300 m which is used as cycle track so beware of the bikes!

Between Bech and Altrier you have very nice views over valleys. Worth seeing on this passage are the tumulus (an ancient Roman grave) and the natural site called "Bildchen" (a 1.000-year old oak-tree).
