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.

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.
