Description

Scenic Refreshment stops available
Hike through the former ore mining district on this section of the Minett Trail between the towns of Tétange and Rumelange.

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 walk through the "Leiffrächen" nature reserve and the hollowed-out area around the border town of Rumelange. Close to the French border, you are in the middle of the mining area and can see how much nature has changed as a result of mining and the necessary infrastructure.

The path leads past the "Monument National des Mineurs" in Kayl, which commemorates the miners who died. On the "Leiffrächen", named after the place of pilgrimage of the same name and the chapel next to the path - the patron saint of the miners - you will find the distinctive red soil typical of the region. In front of the National Mining Museum in Rumelange you can see an old, decommissioned mine train.

ATTENTION: Unfortunately, this section of the Minett Trail is regularly the victim of vandalism. We recommend you to download the GPX data before the hike, as the marking is often damaged or has been removed.
