The sandstone layer, located above a layer of impregnated marl forms an enormous reservoir of water that naturally reflects in many sources, such as the source Saint Quirin (it is given healing effects), located below the chapel of the same name. This place of worship going back to pre-Christian times is intended to become again exploitable for its drinking water. The cliffs that surround the Petrusse valley are classified as monuments and offer a marked geological trail;

-The sources of Little Switzerland;

-The “Meer von Echternach”;

Aquatower Berdorf, exhibition on drinking water with panoramic view;
