Description

A historical hike to the industrial heart of Luxembourg

Leaving the Capital, this footpath leads through the region to the south of the country. Passing the idyllic Gantenbeinsmillen, on the outskirts of the City of Luxembourg, the path offers you the opportunity to discover the Château in Hesperange and the ‘Maison de la Nature’ in Kockelscheuer, both set in the magnificent landscape which stretches as far as the South of Luxembourg. With a wealth of history dominated by industrial activity, the Land of the Red Earth (named after the red soil which remained after the mining of iron ore) is marked these days by its diversity. In addition to savouring an impressive historic panorama, the walker can also enjoy the unique ambiance which pervades this region.

 

The "Sentier du Sud" takes you directly from Luxembourg City to the course of the "Minett Trail", which leads through the entire region over 90 kilometers and 10 stages.
