The railway continues to follow the narrow, rocky valley of the
Wiltz, which at this point is only partly accessible to walkers. Three
tunnels. — 171/. M. @obelsmithle (775 ft.; modest inn), at the con-
fluence of the Wiltz and the Sure. A pleasant walk may be taken
byjthe road descending the valley of the Sure (zoad up the valley
to Esch, see p. 282). — Three more tunnels. On a height to the
left is Schlindermanderscheid. To the right, on an isolated hill, is

The castle, with its triple wall, keep, and watch-towers, owes its
dilapidated dition partly to a bombardment by the French in 1685, but
chiefly to modern vandalism. We cross the new stone bridge (one arch
125 ft. in span) at Mi a (see below) and ascend by the road to the
(40 min.) castle and the vy e of Burscheid (4675 ft.; inn), which is situ-

via Fischeiderhof, and a picturesque road also leads thither in 1!/2 br.

of Mucius Scezvola. — The valley now forms a wide basin, in which
the Sure is joined by the Alzette and makes a sharp bend to the EH.
