Welcome to the region of the Red Rocks - the mining cradle of southern Luxembourg.
Situated in the center of the Gaalgebierg, the Hotel The Seven offers an exceptional location for the start of our tour. It provides a large parking lot to park your vehicles and of course, a good drink on the terrace at the end of the activity.
The departure will already be remembered for the visit of the animal park which is located on the heights of the hotel. There you will find a large number of wild animals that you can admire, photograph and even feed. From the park we will take a first path, which will take us down to the square of the "Prince Henri" mine. We will be at 2 steps from the "Ellergronn", the forest reserve which runs along the French border. After having seen the old entrance of the Prince Henri mine, we will join the mine "Cockerill" which has now become a museum.
A few kilometers later, we will find ourselves on a place called the "Kayler Poteau" which will be a crucial point for our tour, because from there we will enter the area of the open pit mines. It will be enough to follow 100m of national road to branch off into the first stony path that will lead us directly to one of the most stunning views of the tour. The view over the canyons, where the mandatory photo will not slip our mind.
Only 6 km are left to return to the hotel. Some of you are still asking for more, others are already dreaming of a beer on the terrace. We will have already spent a good 3 hours together on the bikes at this stage of the tour. Once at the hotel, a debriefing will be done and we will be able to exchange our experience while enjoying a cool drink.
