Europe / Luxembourg / Echternach canton / Echternach travel directory

Echternach (Luxembourgish: Iechternach) is a commune with city status in the canton of Echternach, which is part of the district of Grevenmacher, in eastern Luxembourg. Echternach lies near the border with Germany, and is the oldest town (current population 4,610) in Luxembourg.

It grew around the walls of the Abbey of Echternach, which was founded in 698 AD by St. Willibrord, an English monk of Ripon, who became the first bishop of Utrecht and worked to Christianize the Frisians. As bishop, he directed the monastery as abbot until his death in 739. It is in his honour that the dancing procession takes place annually on Whit Tuesday. This is the only such dance which survives in the region; there was formerly also one at the Mont St. Jean in Dudelange.
