Description

Hike through the mighty nature reserve "Haard-Hesselsbierg-Staebierg" and discover how nature can reclaim everything.

 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 through the huge "Haard - Hesselsbierg - Staebierg" nature reserve; massive boulders, red rock faces and dense forests dominate this former lunar landscape. For decades, the precious "Minette" ore was mined here, which made an essential contribution to the economic development of the country from the beginning of the 20th century until the late 1980s.

In the nature reserve, the path leads past the longest connected rock face in Europe, which also stands out due to its distinctive red colour. Together with the exceptional biodiversity and nature in the "Haard-Hesselsbierg-Staebierg" nature reserve, this is the strength of this section.

At the start in Rumelange you will also find the Musée National des Mines, where you can take a guided tour of the tunnels. There are also other contemporary witnesses of the industrial past along the way: a train waggon used for dumping the slag (the "Humpen") and a view of the former industrial area in Dudelange on arrival down from the nature reserve - with a view of the old water tower - clearly stand out here.
