Located on the Sûre, on the border with Germany, Echternach has an appealing setting. A lively tourist hub, the city is the capital of Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. It is dominated by its abbey, founded in the 7C by St Willibrord and now home to a museum. Rue des Redoutes, Rue Hoovelecker-Burchmauer and Rue Brimmeyer have retained a few towers from the ramparts dating back to the Middle Ages. The Place du Marché is also worth a look.
