Ascent Trip Report

Around 1km East of Buurgplatz, this hill is simply another undulation in the same ridge. According to wikipedia this is the highest point in Luxembourg, although Buurgplatz has the Luxembourg goverment plaque and observation tower (locked at time of my visit and not clear if it's ever open to the public). My altimeter couldn't separate them.

The highpoint is about 100m up a dirt track on the S side of the main road. The summit area was freshly planted with pine saplings so access may become more difficult, and the view poorer...
