Luxembourg - Have you been to Gringlay?

Little by little we are re-starting to visit places, keeping in mind to stay in the area at least for a while. And as I was worrying there isn't a place in Luxembourg, we haven't yet checked out, I've discovered the Facebook page of An American in Luxembourg (I recommend you follow him if you live in Luxembourg). He visits the country by bicycle and discovers lesser known places and one of those places is Gringlay.
In Luxembourg, as little as it is, you have lakes (Echternach, Remerschen, Upper-Sure and Weiswampach) and you have a "mountain" area called the Luxembourg's Ardennes or √Čislek. It's the area where you have most of the Luxembourgish castles. Well in that area there is this Gringlay which is an overview point looking towards the Bourscheid Castle on the trail linking Ettelbruck to Bourscheid Mill.

To reach the viewpoint we put the coordinates (N49.915626° E6.091719°) on the GPS and it lead us to the town Lipperscheid where we parked the car in a hotel parking and continued on foot. You have to walk for a km or even more, but the trail is picturesque with wild flowers and at the time we went there with flowered bushes which smelled incredible. The trail is also accessible with a children's pram or a stroller from the village to the viewpoint, I don't know further, but it might be.

As a bonus if you go to the Camping Panorama in Bourscheid you will have another fantastic viewpoint over the castle. There just park the car and walk maybe 100 metres, but be civilised as there are people living close by and you might not want to disturb them.

I hope you liked my little recommendation and I'm waiting for your impressions of the place on Instagram @mademoiselle.ralu
