Abbey of Echternach, Echternach
Founded by the patron saint of Luxembourg, Abbey of Echternach was the most powerful institution in Luxembourg for 300 years. Known for an annual dancing procession, the abbey is a major tourist destination. The dancing procession attracts pilgrims, tourists, clergy, and townspeople who come to dance through town to the abbey. It begins with a sermon at a bridge crossing the Sauer River and ends at the attraction. Inside the church, a humble chapel features niches and altars adorned with statuary. You'll also find old murals that depict biblical stories. Although the atmosphere is holy and modest, this church had a powerful influence on the country. Indulge in a stroll around the abbey grounds, where you can enjoy the gardens and surrounding buildings.

"Kompass Comfort" is designed for Russian speaking tourists, although buses with Lithuanian rooms are used.
It is a beautiful old cathedral with a magical vibe
Ok. So the abbey is ok. It is not as good as the Notre Dame Cathedral in Luxembourg, but that being said this is a small village not a large town. There is a quaint market and some lovely restaurants in which to dine. You are a stones throw away from Germany but not close enough to walk to any German towns. Bus takes around an hour from Luxembourg city.
