Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall

Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall

The 11 municipalities of Beaufort, Bech, Berdorf, Consdorf, Echternach, Fischbach, Heffingen, Larochette, Nommern, Rosport-Mompach and Waldbillig are part of the Nature & Geopark Mëllerdall since 2016. About 25.500 inhabitants live on 256 km ². Along the main roads, signs with the Nature & Geopark logo point to the region.

The Luxembourg law says that only regions with a particular cultural and natural heritage can become a nature park. Since the Mëllerdall Region has a specific geological heritage, it is also a geopark. Imposing rock formations, deep valleys and vast plateaus characterize this region, where the Luxembourg sandstone forms one of the most imposing sandstone landscapes in Western Europe. The Nature & Geopark promotes the sustainable use of this heritage while supporting the economic, social and ecological development. It strengthens regional cooperation and provides a platform for cross-border projects. The Nature & Geopark Mëllerdall stands for its inhabitants and is not a protected zone, a geology park or a park bounded by a fence.

The Nature & Geopark Mëllerdall conveys the value of this geological heritage to mankind and in 2020, it will apply for membership in the UNESCO Global Geoparks program. In 2018, the regional Council of the UNESCO Global Geoparks attested a great potential for membership. At the same time, various improvement measures were recommended, which are currently being implemented.
