From mining to nature reserve
The “Ellergronn” nature reserve was used for iron ore mining just a few decades ago. After the site south of Esch-sur-Alzette was abandoned, the “Kazebierg” mining area located there was transformed into a variety of habitats for a wide range of animal species, amidst ponds and the dry grass so typical of the region, on the edge of an alder and ash forest, along the small streams. The “Ellergronn” is part of the European network of nature reserves Natura 2000. A small jewel that can be discovered directly and easily from Esch-sur-Alzette on a hike or a short walk.
