Description

Hike over the "Prënzebierg" and the nature reserve "Giele Botter"

A discovery trail leads you through a disused open-cast mining area in the "Land of the Red Rocks". At the time of ore mining, today's nature reserve was bare and the predominant color was red. Today the former mining area has been filled again with dense forests, shrubs, dry grass and ponds, which represent a unique habitat for countless species.
