Dillingen is located in the middle of the German-Luxembourg Nature Park, along the Sûre river. The German side of this Nature Park is formed by the Süd-Eifel, the Luxembourg side by the Mullerthal, also known as Luxembourg's Little Switzerland.
It is a specific hiking-area in large forests, with passable and well marked hiking-tracks, along rocks, rivers en viewpoints. It is also appropriate to make tours on mountain-bikes, bicycles, or road bikes and to do some geocaching.
The many regional and local hiking routes are perfectly marked. The Mullerthal Trail, was certified in early 2014 with the label "Leading Quality Trails - Best of Europe". Meanwhile, it has received this label for the second time.
Bungalowpark Hondsbierg is a very good starting point for day trips to sights and museums such as Echternach, the oldest city of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Vianden with its imposing restored castle, the city of Luxembourg with many ancient fortifications, also known as the Gibraltar of the north, the Moeselvalei with its renowned Moesel wines or Trier, Germany's oldest city.
Within a half an hour drive by car you will find four imposing remains of the Middle Ages, the Vianden castle mentioned above, the Larochette ruin, the Beaufort ruin and the Renaissance castle build in the 17th century.
During the Second World War, a major battle took place in this region, the Ardennes Offensive (a.k.a. the battle of the bulge), from 16 December 1944 to the end of February 1945. There are still traces left in the landscape. In the Musée National d'Histoire Militaire in Diekirch you can get a good impression about this battle around the Ardennes.
