Stadt, Land, Fluss im Éislek

Hiking Collection by Éislek

Das Éislek vereint atemberaubende Naturlandschaften mit urbanen Orten.

Dort wo Alzette und Sauer aufeinandertreffen, ist eine einmalige Landschaftsstruktur entstanden: das Tal der Nordstad, gesäumt von unbesiedelten Hängen und Hochflächen.

Neben üppigen Wäldern und windigen Plateaus spielt auch das Thema Wasser in der Region eine große Rolle, so beherbergt das Éislek gleich zwei Seen.
Gut einen km westlich von Esch-sur-Sûre, inmitten des Naturparks Obersauer, liegt der seit 1961 aufgestaute Obersauer Stausee. Neben der Trinkwasserversorgung und der Elektrizitätsgewinnung dient der auf einer Fläche von 380 Hektar gelegene See heute als beliebtes Freizeitgebiet.

Besondere Erlebnisse bieten die Umrundung des Obersauerstausees auf dem Circuit du Lac sowie die Umrundung der "NORDSTAD" auf dem Sentier Adrien Ries.

Beide Touren können in kürze Rundwanderwege unterteilt werden.

    Adrien Ries (1933-1991), born in Biwels, was a Luxembourg lawyer, economic expert and author. From 1962 to 1986 he made a career at the European Commission. In 1973 he coined the term Nordstad for the urban settlement area Diekirch / Ettelbruck.In addition to many economic and political publications, he is remembered by many Luxembourgers as a versatile author of diaries, travel reports and newspaper columns.He was an avid hiker and walked thousands of kilometers through Luxembourg and Europe. The 50 km circuit around the 6 municipalities of the "Nordstad" would certainly not have been too far for him.If the 50 km is too long for you, you can divide the tour at Diekirch and Ettelbrück into three circular hiking trails.
