25 Station to station Kayl - Schifflange - Esch-sur-Alzette


A sporty walk with some steep climbs, but the effort is worthwhile: this tour is one of the most varied and interesting of this selection. The trail passes through recultivated former
open-cast mining sites and nature reserves with impressive biodiversity. Information panels are placed at many points of the route. Splendid views of typical Minette landscapes are alternating with shadowy forest areas. Solid footwear is recommended.

After 6,4 km, a trail marked CFL 25a forks off to Schifflange station (2,1 km), thus giving the possibility to split this ramble in two sections: Kayl – Schifflange (8,5 km) and Schifflange – Esch-sur-Alzette (16,7 km).

N.B.: Few trains stop at Kayl station. Alternative: bus service. Please take a close look at the timetables while planning your trip.
