During the visit, the Head of State received detailed information about the “Man and the Biosphere” programme from the President of the National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO, Simone Beck, and about the opportunities that this label represents for the regional, sustainable, and touristic development of the south of the Grand Duchy.

The Grand Duke then received explanations on the Ellergronn nature and forest centre and visited the Cockerill Mine Museum, before ending his visit with a walk through the Eisekaul-site, a former open pit mine that perfectly represents the richness of biodiversity of the Minett UNESCO Biosphere as well as the typical geological structures of Minett.
