The Upper Sûre Nature Park

Today, the Nature Park's offices and information centre are situated near the dam in Esch-sur-Sûre. The Nature Park Centre was once home to a cloth factory whose looms and spinning machines are still set in motion for guided tours to the museum. It is where projects are coordinated that promote environmental, economic, cultural and touristic interest consistent with the countryside and the people who live there. Sustainable development in the service of the region has led to the creation of a large number of products that are already known and liked far beyond the Nature Park boundaries: tea, herbs, meat, cosmetics and spelt products "vum Séi" (from the lake). Restaurants certified with the "Gourmet vum Séi" label always have typical regional dishes on their menu.


Visitors can enjoy the Nature Park in many different ways around the lake. For example on extensive hiking trails some of which reveal some of the centuries-old secrets of the region. With its 42 km shoreline, the reservoir is easily the most important and dominating body of standing water in Luxembourg. A natural history trip on the solar-powered boat accompanied with detailed explanations is the ideal way of exploring the flora and fauna of this biotope.


The projects of the Upper Sûre Nature Park cross Nature Park and state borders with Belgium, Germany and France in excellent European cooperation as part of the network of Nature Parks in the greater region.
