Description
Accessible to all

Hike the Minett Trail regional footpath between Belval-Université and Esch-sur-Alzette train stations and discover the new heart of science and research in the new Belval district.

The Minett Trail leads trough the Minett Region on 90 kilometres. You can split the trail in ten stages on which you can discover little villages and bigger cities, but also hike through eight nature reserves. These charm visitors with their old woods and former open pit mines whose cliffy rock faces, red rocks and pit brows are unique in Luxembourg.

On this section you walk from an alternative starting point between the new district of Belval, which has been developing rapidly for almost ten years, and the city of Esch-sur-Alzette. Even though it's not an official stage of the Trail, you're still likely to get a good impression of the region. The former industrial wasteland was made habitable  again with enormous efforts; since then, the district that officially belongs to Esch-sur-Alzette has been filled with new life. Whether as a cultural center (with the "Rockhal"), for research or studies and sciences (Belval is the location of the University of Luxembourg, which is also very young) or leisure, the location is a prime example of successful revalorisation.
