Further information

The region in the south of Luxembourg bears more than just its name because of its industrial past. For decades the new wealth of the country was brought to light here: the “Minette” iron ore and the steel industry have shaped the country and the landscape to this day, and both nature and society have been changed in equal measure. Anyone wandering through the region today will discover its own peculiarities and characteristics and enjoy its rich diversity. It can be beneficial to be aware of the rich history, but do not despair: if you want to find out more details, you will find what you are looking for in several museum stations along the hiking trail.

The "Minett Trail" over 90 kilometers leads through several former open-cast mining areas that have been gradually renatured again over the past 40 years after the mining operation stopped; Whether on one of the ten official sections of the route, which are between 7 and 15 kilometers long, or on a segment that you have made out for yourself - the "Minett Trail" will reward its hikers with wonderful views and great experiences.
