Description

Kids & Family Scenic Refreshment stops available
Hike the Minett Trail between the train station of Schifflange and the cultural site Beim Nëssert in Bergem and through the unique nature reserve "Dumontshaff"

The Minett Trail leads through 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 through the unique water and bird sanctuary "Dumontshaff", which as a Natura 2000 nature reserve offers a habitat for several species. Here you can take a closer look at the diversity of the Alzette valley and the course of the river, and with a bit of luck you can watch storks or lapwings breeding. You might even catch a glimpse of the water buffaloes grazing here - as long as they're not currently hiding from prying eyes. The wetland area you walk across has a boarded over footpath to protect nature while still allowing you access.
