Die Nat'Our Route 4 zur Ourtalschleife – Wanderwege Südeifel & Luxemburg
NaturWanderPark delux planned a hike.
December 18, 2020
On this fascinating hiking tour in the NaturWanderPark delux, there is not only wonderful impressions of nature but also a lot of man-made things to admire.Until the 1950s, the Our, as a small stream, looped its loop around Bivels, which at that time looked very different; The St. Nicolas mountain still had a hilltop and there was no reservoir yet. Today's landscape, on the other hand, bears witness to one of the most impressive building projects in Luxembourg from the middle of the last century. One of the largest pumped storage power plants in Europe is almost invisible here at Vianden. Deep beneath your route, the tides rush in giant tubes between the reservoir and the upper basin on Mont St. Nicolas.The copper mine in Stolzemburg, which you will reach later on the route, tells a much older mining history. And much older: the history of Falkenstein Castle, from which the house and castle ruins have been preserved. Today the castle is privately owned.
