As if a ship were floating in the lake of the “Haff Réimech“: this is how the Biodiversum looks from afar. It was built on an artificially created island and is located at the foot of the vineyards in the nature reserve “Haff Réimech“. The ground floor presents, among other things, the history of the nature reserve and the underwater world. The upper floor introduces visitors to the bird and plant life, other nature reserves in Luxembourg, environmental protection and sustainability. The visit can be wonderfully combined with an ornithological tour of the nature reserve, which is appreciated for its great diversity of bird species and its rich flora and fauna. Adjacent quarry ponds provide cooling in summer. The Biodiversum is the starting and finishing point of the circular trail through the “Haff Réimech“, which is about 4 kilometres long. If you like, you can also take the 7-kilometre nature trail “Kuebendällchen”. It starts at the cemetery in nearby Wintrange and leads from the valley up through the mixed beech forest to the plateau above the village. Via the “Steppchen” and the “Fëlsberg” you then return to the valley to the starting point. The educational trail offers beautiful views of the Moselle valley.
