Trail "Sentier des Poètes"


In the footsteps of poets

The poets' trail was set up in 2011 as part of the International Year of Forests in collaboration with the National Center for Literature in Mersch.

Located between Lamadelaine, Rodange and Fond-de-Gras, this circuit isn't an ordinary didactic trail; it reveals the beauty of the landscape in a poetic way, as the walker will discover literary texts with a forest theme written by Luxemburgish authors, all along the way on its 12 stations.
