Minett Trail Visit Minett
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 stretch of route, you walk between the two train stations of Pétange and Clemency. Admittedly, although trains no longer come into Clemency at the old station, the building has been converted into an inn where you can relax from the exertion of the trail. This section is a good start to the 90-kilometer route of the Minett Trail. On the way you walk through a shady forest, which relieves you of the hardships of the path. You might even stop at the pond along the route, which is always good for a surprise. Meanwhile, in Pétange, a well-kept park awaits you, through which you can hike on the Minett Trail.
Please follow the "Minett Trail" signs, which can be followed either way down the trail.
This stage of the “Minett Trail” trail starts either at the parking of the Pétange touristic train station of the "Train 1900", or at the former train station of Clemency (now a brasserie). Follow the official signposting: The signs show three red arrows on a white background. They are signposted "on sight" and may be affixed to streetlights or other posts.
While in our nature reserves, you can find them as glued or screwed to trees and posts; in some places the waymark is also marked on trees. At important junctions you will also find signposts with arrows indicating the direction and information about the distance to specific points, as well as pictograms of points of interest.
