Boots on and eyes forward on this exciting educational and hiking trail!
This walk, which starts at the CR163 between Leudelange and Bettembourg, seems fairly ordinary at first: magnificent trees, beautiful landscapes and the joyful chirping of the birds to accompany you along the way. And yet, if you trek a little deeper into this welcoming nature reserve and keep your eyes open, you might spot some rare species. The massif forest consists primarily of beech trees, and the path takes you along streams and pools all the way to the Léiffraeweier pond. Be on the lookout for the ashen woodpecker, the black woodpecker and the sea woodpecker. And at dusk, if you gaze up at the branches and the sky, you might catch a glimpse of a Natterer or Bechstein’s bat. You’re not afraid of bats, right?
Child-friendly boards provide information about the inhabitants and ecological processes in the natural forest. A brochure about the path with a forest quiz for children is available in the municipality of Bettembourg or in the forest administration.
