Enjoy the pleasures of being in natureIn

You can start by going to the Haff Réimech nature reserve and its ponds, a real birdwatching paradise for enthusiasts. The Manternacher Fiels nature reserve follows along the Syre valley, with numerous educational trails that allow you to enjoy the rural landscape, but also to learn about agriculture and beekeeping. Strombierg is another beautiful nature reserve with impressive beech forests, vineyards and a trail that explains the natural area around the small town of Schengen.
For wine tourism enthusiasts, the Luxembourg Moselle also invites you to walk the 42 km between Schengen and Wasserbillig, which takes you along magnificent river landscapes and includes stops in historic villages to meet passionate winegrowers. Sparkling Crémants, elegant Rieslings, full-bodied Pinot Noirs: the Moselle also knows how to seduce the palate.
The Moselle is a unique opportunity to get close to nature, and it is advisable to let yourself be guided through the rock formations, through the vineyards and along the wild orchid meadows by getting the new edition of the three-volume POCKETGUIDE series, which covers the many hiking trails.
