The tower at the summit of Buurgplaatz
Tidbits: Highest point in Luxembourg.
Summitted, June 1, 2006
Time Zone: GMT -8 hours
When to go:
Anytime. The summit area is always accessible..
Located just outside the village of Troivierges off the N12 (you will notice a round-a-bout at the Belgium/Luxembourg border, follow the road with the elevation leading up, past a small market and gas station. The tower is about 1/2 mile up the road. Parking is available at the base of the tower. The actual highpoint is the mound of grass behind the tower.
Hotel and Climb Reservation:
No guide, permit, or trail reservations are required. I stayed in Brussels and stopped there on a trip to Frankfurt. Driving time from Frankfurt or Brussels is about 2 hours.
See "Route Sleection".
The highpoint is located in a scenic area of Luxembourg, right at the border with Belgium. This is about 1/2 way between Brussels and Frankfurt. The area itself is unremarkable and the highpoint is not worth a special trip, but it is certainly worthwhile to stop by if you are in the area. On June 1st, the temperature was 40 degrees.
A picture of me at the actual summit. I believe the view is to the south.
A nice view from the summit of the surrounding countryside.
