In the heart of Manternach, the nature conservation centre A Wiewesch welcomes visitors interested in nature conservation and cultural history. The Nature Conservation Centre is located in the heart of the rural village of Manternach in a former farmhouse. A Wiewesch organizes numerous activities and excursions in nature for young and old. On request, visitors can book a guided walk to the Manternacher Fiels.
Throughout the year, the A Wiewesch team offers various biodiversity and sustainability activities. Another highlight of the centre is the production of fresh apple juice, the "Viz", in October.
Exhibition "Nature Conservation & Agriculture"
The exhibition at A Wiewesch shows the interdependence between nature and agriculture. It presents the conflicts between industrial agriculture, far from natural practices, and nature conservation. Moreover, it shows innovative and proven ways to reconcile agriculture and biodiversity.
The Nature Reserve Manternacher Fiels
The "Manternacher Fiels" is both a national and a European protected area. The heart of the area is the canyon forest, which covers about 57 hectares and is the largest canyon forest in Luxembourg in terms of area. It has not been cultivated for about 50 years. Human intervention in the forest area is limited to keeping the hiking trails open and free. Since 2012, the Manternacher Fiels has officially been a natural forest reserve. On nature trails and hiking paths through the nature reserve visitors can enjoy impressive experiences.
