National hiking trail "Path of the Minerworkers"

Slopes covered by rich verdant woodland, tranquil valleys through which meander numerous streams, and the angular mounds formed by mining excavation characterise this region known as the Land of the Red Earth. This Miners’ Path takes you past practically every place of interest or importance in the region, crossing the nature reserves which now extend over the former open-cast mines. It crosses a region which was once the most important industrial area in Luxembourg, and offers the walker some astonishing views over former mining developments and historic railway installations. It was here that the heart of a powerful steel industry once beat. But the noise of the factories has now gone, and Mother Nature has retaken what is rightfully hers.
