Further information

There are certain landscapes that change dramatically over time, and the Ellergronn Nature Reserve is one of them. Formerly known as the Kazebierg extraction zone, located south of Esch-sur-Alzette, this area was primarily used for iron-ore mining until a few decades ago. After the mines were abandoned, the land was transformed into a multitude of habitats, which now host to a wide variety of species. The animals make their homes in the middle of the ponds, in the region’s dry grasslands, in the alder and ash trees, along the banks of streams...no wonder they love it here! The area is also part of the European Natura 2000 network of protected nature reserves. The perfect place for a hike or healthy day in the great outdoors.

The didactic path Natura 2000 is separated into three thematic tours which can easily be combined:

Tour A : crosses mainly the forests that have been marked by human beings for years, therefore the topic “the human and the woods”.

Tour B : “The usage of the mining areas, now and then” is the topic to which this circular walk is dedicated.

Tour C: illustrates the principle of “The natural development in a former mining area”. It shows how nature took over the former opencast mining areas over time.

Visite très agréable

La visite guidée était très agréable, la durée de 1h30 est ce qu'il faut pour pouvoir apprécier le site sans commencer à se fatiguer ou à se perdre dans ses pensées. Le parcours est léger et facilement praticable.
Nous étions un gros groupe et cela s'est bien passé, le guide attendait les derniers marcheurs avant de nous donner des explications. Par ailleurs, la visite n'était pas trop lourde, les explications étaient très pertinentes et nous avions aussi pas mal de temps pour simplement apprécier la ballade et la vue.
Le staff a été très réactif pour répondre à nos questions pendant le processus de réservation.

Je recommande donc cette visite !
