Description

Hike the regional Minett Trail between the two train stations of Rumelange and Esch-sur-Alzette and let yourself be enchanted by nature in the nature reserves.

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 alternative trail section you hike through the nature reserve "Ellergronn" close to Esch-sur-Alzette and past the National Mining Museum in Rumelange, always close to the rich industrial past of the country.

 This route is only part of the official route to Kayl-Tétange and thus also leads through the nature reserve "Léiffrächen" - named after the patron saint of miners and a nearby place of pilgrimage, where there are said to have been miraculous apparitions: Children who fell into a trance are said to have seen the Mother of God here.
