The Upper Sûre Nature Park, Luxembourg’s water region, is located in the northwest of Luxembourg. The nature park extends over 230 sq. km and comprises 6 municipalities with a total of over 15,500 inhabitants. The heart of the park is a 3.8-sq. km reservoir, which serves as the country’s drinking water reservoir and recreation area. Visitors can enjoy the nature park in different ways all around the lake: for example, on extensive hikes, some of which also reveal centuries-old secrets of the region, or bike or e-bike tours. The reservoir can easily be explored on a solar-powered boat trip.
But the reservoir itself is not the only reason why the Upper Sûre Nature Park is characterized as a water region. Water is omnipresent in the nature park. The Upper Sûre river and its many tributaries flow through the area and make it a paradise for both flora and fauna as well as for nature and sports enthusiasts looking for peace and recreation in a unique environment.
You will find the Nature Park administration’s office and a sales outlet for regional products in the Nature Park Centre in Esch-sur-Sûre, which once housed a cloth factory. Its weaving and spinning looms can still be put into operation today during guided tours of the museum.
In 2010 the Upper Sûre Nature Park were awarded the EDEN Prize.
