Nature reserve Prënzebierg – Giele Botter

The first licenses for the Minette up on the Prënzebierg were issued as early as 1870. 100 years later in 1977, mining stopped at the Giele Botter. This explains the many and varied landscapes, structures and biotopes at the open pit.

Many hiking paths guide the visitor through the old mining area Land of the red earth. In the days when iron ore was extracted, this area was bleak and the dominant color was red. Today, this area is characterized by the different stages of development and biotopes. The hiking paths go along routes once used by buggies and will show the visitor the various stages of vegetal development and the amazingly diverse rare flora and fauna.

Nature reserve Kiemerchen

The nature reserve Kiemerchen/Scheiergronn/Groussebësch covers 391.94 ha. The former mining sites of the Minette region are unique landscapes that bear witness both to the geological past of this region and to Luxembourg’s industrial history.

After the end of iron ore mining in the late 1970s, these landscapes developed into sites of unprecedented ecological interest. Today they are designated as nature reserves at national level and as Natura 2000 sites at European level. Because they are close to large urban centres, the landscapes are valued as recreational areas by local people as well as occasional visitors and tourists.

Parc Gerlache

Since the redesign of the park in the course of upgrading the city center, this green lung of the city of Differdange has become a real meeting place and to retreat. The lawn has recently been renewed and new plantations have been created, investments that speak about the importance attached to this green space.

Modern play areas for children and quiet places invite you to relax. The park offers an ideal resting place thanks to the small benches. The park is a meeting point for all generations and is also used for cultural purposes.

Parc de la Chiers

The Parc de la Chiers was developed as part of the Plateau du Funiculaire project on a total area of ​​five hectares. For comparison: Parc Gerlache is only 0.80 hectares in size. The new park has become a relaxing area for Differdange.

The city’s new green lung is located between the towns of Differdange, Oberkorn and Fousbann. Thanks to its hiking and biking trails, the park is accessible to all residents of different parts of the city. It invites you to relax and offers moments of peace for the whole family.

In order to preserve the wild character of the area and the evolution of the biotope, the encroachment on the natural environment was reduced to a maximum. The Chiers was renatured over a length of 500 meters and the currently channeled watercourse was exposed. The stream flows along a winding path through the park and the old artificial bed of the Chiers has disappeared.

Parc Edmond Dune

In 2015, the city of Differdange created a new public park in the city center. The castle park was officially opened on June 23, 2015 and is now called Edmond Dune Park in honor of the Luxembourgish writer and poet, whose aunt was the governess of the castle. Its central location makes the park a green island in the heart of Differdange.

In the park you will find fruit trees, a fitness area and a charming garden library that works on the principle of book crossing: everyone can deposit their own books and borrow the ones offered by other readers.

The Edmond Dune Park also serves as an exhibition area for numerous sculptures that were produced as part of a symposium organized by the city of Differdange.

Parc Um Bierg

This local recreation area near the Vesquenhaff fits perfectly into the concept of offering hikers a network of parks with different themes. It is intended to offer a place of peace for families who want to take a short trip into nature.

The flower meadow, the sunflower field sown by school children, fruit trees, the pasture tunnel and the wicker tunnel will allow families to spend a pleasant moment at the gates of Differdange. The wood protection is designed to protect against sudden bad weather or sunshine. You will notice the green roof, which is covered with grass and wild flowers and it is a habitat for native plants.

Parc de la Grève 1942

This small but significant park was created in 2023 around the Monuments aux Martyrs de l’usine de Differdange, which commemorates the courage and loyalty of those who were deported and murdered during World War II. The monument commemorates the strike of Hadir workers who refused to work on 2 September 1942 – after draft service for young men was introduced.

The following six workers were subsequently arrested and executed in the concentration camp Hinzert: René-Emile Angelsberg, Nicolas Betz, Robert Mischo, Jean-Pierre Schneider, Ernest Toussaint and Alphonse Weets. Their names and faces were immortalized on plaques in the park. Information about the general strike and the Differdange steel factory can also be found there.

The park is thus not only a place for rest and relaxation, but also an important memorial to the time of the Second World War and the resistance of the Luxembourgers against National Socialism.
