Description

Hike the regional Minett Trail between Pétange and Differdange train stations and discover the diversity of the regions nature and several of its historic mining areas.

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 the Prënzebierg - Giele Botter nature reserve, past the Fond-de-Gras and through the sleepy little village of Lasauvage, which lies directly on the French border. You walk through dense forests and renatured mining areas and can discover how nature has reclaimed the landscape.
