Centre nature et forêt Ellergronn

Where? Rue Jean-Pierre Bausch, L-4114 Esch-sur-Alzette

Experience the diversity of nature and learn more about the relationships in the nature reserves

The iron industry and iron ore mining significantly  contributed to Luxembourg’s economic upturn. Iron ore mining took place in the underground galeries of the « Mine Cockerill » at the Ellergronn. After the closing of the mine, the entire site with its buildings has been renovated and turned into a centre for nature conservation and the museum of the “Mine Cockerill”.

The centre is situated in the midst of a nature reserve which is part of the Natura-2000 network. Natura 2000 is an ecological network of nature protection areas within the European Union aiming to preserve native wild species as well as their natural habitats.

The visitors’ centre is the starting point of educational trails leading through a number of neighboring nature reserves.
