Our Nature Reserve

Founded in 2005, the Our Nature Reserve is located in the Ardennes, a common border region between Luxembourg, Germany and Belgium. Expanding over a surface of 309 square kilometres, the Our Nature Reserve spans 7 municipalities, numbering 15,000 inhabitants.

Marked by the winding Our river, the nature reserve is a landscape shaped by high plateaus and deep valleys.

The nature reserve's main objectives are the economic and sociocultural development of the region, while respecting its natural resources and cultural heritage.

It presents countless opportunities for hikers and fans of cycling and mountain biking. However, lovers of culture are not left behind: the prestigious photographic exhibition 'The Family of Man' in castle Clervaux, the Festival 'Jardins à suivre …', the Victor Hugo house in Vianden or the mining museum at Stolzembourg are welcoming visitors.

The region around the nature reserve is also dotted with castles: Vianden Castle, the most impressive of Luxembourg's castles, dominates the valley below.

The direct-to-consumer sale of agricultural produce from the nature reserve, such as poppy-based products or cheese, help to secure a future for farmers in the region and to preserve the landscape.
