Excursion ideas on water and sea before & after the conference

Luxembourg:

-Mondorf-les-Bains Tour: 11 km walking tour which, in a green environment, runs along the thermal domain, the old source Kind and the Waasserhaus, which now is used as cinema;

-The thermal baths Mondorf-les-Bains;

-The former water tower of Dudelange, transformed into a photography gallery, and the “Pomhouse”, the former pumping house next to the water tower;

-The Petrusse valley with its fauna (wall lizards, great murine bats, falcons, western jackdaws and the great eagle-owls: the largest nocturnal raptor in Europe) and its rare and protected flora. The sandstone layer, located above a layer of impregnated marl forms an enormous reservoir of water that naturally reflects in many sources, such as the source Saint Quirin (it is given healing effects), located below the chapel of the same name. This place of worship going back to pre-Christian times is intended to become again exploitable for its drinking water. The cliffs that surround the Petrusse valley are classified as monuments and offer a marked geological trail;

-The sources of Little Switzerland;

-The “Meer von Echternach“;

-Aquatower Berdorf, exhibition on drinking water with panoramic view;

-The Roman Baths of the region Dalheim (Vicus Ricciacum) or Mamer (Vicus Mambra);

-Cruise on the Moselle;
