Description

Hike the regional Minett Trail between Esch-sur-Alzette and Tétange train stations and experience the freshness of nature in two nature reserves.

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 hike through two nature reserves. Whether in the "Ellergronn" or on the "Leiffrächen", both protected areas impressively showing how much mining has changed the landscape. In both mining areas, nature has reclaimed the area, and where barren landscapes once dominated, dense forests and bird sanctuaries are now blooming.
