Welcome to the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall

Because of the diverse, unique geological heritage of imposing sandstone cliffs with narrow clefts and deep gorges the region is something very special. Therefore, the Nature Park, founded in 2016, is also a Geopark to focus on the fascinating geology of the region. The combination of Nature and Geopark speaks for the special importance and protection requirement of the landscape which should be preserved for future generations. The different aspects of nature such as plants, animals, rocks and water as well as their use by humans are brought together here. Since 2022, the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall is part of the international networks of the UNESCO Global Geoparks.

The Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall is located in the east of the Grand Duchy on the border with Germany and covers an area of ​​256 km² with about 26,000 inhabitants in the eleven municipalities Beaufort, Bech, Berdorf, Consdorf, Echternach, Fischbach, Heffingen, Larochette, Nommern , Rosport-Mompach and Waldbillig. Its name "Mëllerdall" – Miller’s Valley - was given to the Nature and Geopark due to the numerous mills along Sauer and Black Ernz and many other streams.
