To help you find your way during a hike through the Minett UNESCO Biosphere, you can now order the Minett Trail guidebook. All stages of the trail are described in detail in this new hiking guide, which is available in German, English and French versions. You will find start and finish points for each stage, an elevation profile and additional information on the highlights of each part of the trail. In addition, the hiking guide also introduces several other places in southern Luxembourg that are waiting to be discovered by you in combination with the Minett Trail. The guide also describes two hiking stages that are particularly suitable for children to discover the region together as a family.

In addition, the guide also gives you an insight into the 11 Kabaisercher (hostels) on the Minett Trail. Six of these accommodations can already be booked online, allowing you to extend your discovery of Luxembourg’s only biosphere reserve for more than one day.

The Minett Trail Guide can easily be ordered by sending an email to and will soon be available at many tourist sites in the south.
