Description
Scenic

Hike in the footsteps of the miners on the national hiking trail "Path of the Minerworkers"

Once the most important industrial region in Luxembourg, the Basse-Chiers has gradually been taken over by nature. This scenic trail takes hikers through green forests and quiet valleys, along charming streams, and down mining slopes with angular contours, typical of the region. The Miners’ Trail offers surprising views of old mining towns and a unique look at the region’s historic railroad heritage. The journey invites you to enjoy nature and reflect on the old mining days.
