Minett Trail Visit Minett

Description

Hike the regional Minett Trail between the train stations of Esch-sur-Alzette and Schifflange through the nature reserve "Lalléngerbierg - Brucherbierg" and experience the region's characteristic red rock faces.

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 section you hike between the towns of Esch-sur-Alzette and Schifflange through the nature reserve  "Lalléngerbierg - Brucherbierg" and thus through an important piece of history that has strongly shaped the region and both towns.

This stage is particularly rich in contrasts; on the one hand you walk through barren lunar landscapes with the distinctive red soil. Then again the path leads through lush, green forests, and with a bit of luck you will find the source of the "Marxeweiher" near Schifflange. The path is also very varied and it offers deep insights into the ever-changing region. Just a short detour away from the path in the direction of the "Kabaischen" in Schifflange, it offers you a view over the new Belval district, for example.
