The Land of the Red Rocks

The Land of the Red Rocks is a region of Luxembourg located in the south of the country. It owes its name to the red ore that was behind the success of the steel industry in Luxembourg, back in the industrial era. Today, the former mining area of the Land of the Red Rocks, also referred to as Terres Rouges, has established a new identity through combining ancient and new technologies.

Steel plants and Fond-de-Gras

The Terres Rouges region is primarily characterized by its industrial culture. The former steelworks were reassigned to serve modern society. Today it is the industry and railway park Fond-de-Gras, which recalls this fundamental time in the history of Luxembourg.

University campus and commercial centres

The Red Rock region encompasses the major commercial cities of Luxembourg, including Esch-sur-Alzette, Differdange and Dudelange. Resolutely modern and trendy, these cities form an urban complex with a young and dynamic atmosphere. Street theater, rock festivals and concert halls complement cultural offerings. It is also in the Red Rock region, in Belval precisely, that the campus of the University of Luxembourg has opened its doors in 2015. The famous concert hall “Rockhal” in Belval became a meeting point of famous international rock- and popstars.

Red land - a paradise for children

In addition to the many attractions of the former mining area, the Red Rocks region offers a wide range of activities for children. Crocodiles, snakes, parrots and monkeys are waiting at the 'Parc Merveilleux' of Bettembourg. Hauled by creaking locomotive wagons spitting fire, kids and parents alike discover the underground galleries of the old mines of Rumelange.

Mountainbike Trails

Each of the region‘s nature reserves has at least one mountainbike trail. With different degrees of difficulty, they are suitable for beginners and experts alike, and can easily be combined. The RedRock Mountainbike Trail features the Haard-red (27.4km), Haard-black (27.6 km) and Ellergronn-red (28.7 km) sections, each passing through natural and historic sites.
