Pétange, together with the Minett Park Fond-de-Gras, is located in the former industrial area in the south east of the Grand Duchy, which reminds us that its history was marked by mining.
The discovery trail “Prënzebierg-Giele Botter” reaches the middle of the former opencast mining area where iron ore was once extracted. With numerous hiking trails and parks, the nature reserve is an ideal place for relaxation and family outings. In addition to the 17 kilometres of hiking trails, you can follow a 29 km long miners trail that connects Pétange with Rodange and Differdange. There, visitors can find educational boards with historical facts about the former industrial site and information about plants and animals native to the region. With a bit of luck, you might even see a grazing flock of sheep.
Rodange, once known for metallurgy, is located in the southwest of the Grand Duchy and shares the Luxembourg border with both Belgium and France.
