On 10 June 2016, the Nature Park Mëllerdall was presented to the public. The many mills along the Sauer and the Black Ernz, as well as many other brooks, are eponymous of Luxembourg's third nature reserve. In the East of the Grand Duchy, at Germany's border, 12 municipalities spanning a total of 256 km2 and with a total of 23,000 inhabitants joined forces to found the Nature Reserve Mëllerdall.
Discover the nature reserve's region and experience a diverse landscape with traditional orchards and extensive forests, as well as its geological features – impressive sandstone formations and deep canyons and ravines. This diversity is also mirrored in the region's biodiversity: apart from unique ferns and mosses, many old fruit varieties can be found here.
Hike through the region on the prized Mullerthal Trail, or on the extensive network of local hiking paths. Enjoy the cultural offer of this historically rich region, the culinary specialties of the regional producers, and the many outdoor leisure activities (moutainbike, biking, climbing, weater sports, etc.).
The Nature Reserve Mëllerdall comprises the municipalities of Beaufort, Bech, Berdorf, Consdorf, Echternach, Fischbach, Heffingen, Larochette, Mompach, Nommern, Rosport and Waldbillig.
The Upper Sûre Nature Park and the Our Nature Reserve are the other two nature reserves in Luxembourg. Together with local nature reserves, they protect Luxembourg's natural heritage. The parks are prized as popular tourist attractions, with foreigners as well as with residents.
