The Forêt d’Anlier Nature Park is located in the eastern part of the province of Luxembourg, along the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg border. It includes 7 municipalities: Bastogne (touristic place), Vaux-sur-Sûre, Fauvillers, Habay, Martelange, Léglise et Neufchâteau. This Natural Park is also the home to landscapes of breath-taking beauty: open areas, sometimes deep valleys, forest areas. This is also the magic of the Ardennes!
Many small producers nest in the heart of the park and you will discover authentic local products: breads, cheeses, charcuteries… More than a hundred quality products are from this region.
Excursions in the nature and other activities are planned.
During the weekend, it will be possible to organize cultural visits and to travel to the biggest Belgian cities.
The 21st of July is the Belgian national holiday and many activities are organized everywhere.
“Pierre Sèche” Project is an Interreg cooperation project between natural parks located in an area called the “Greater Region”. The Greater Region lies at the crossroads of the rivers Rhine, Saar, Meuse and Moselle. It gathers together territories of Lorraine in the French region Grand Est, Wallonia in Belgium, Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany as well as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Through this project, each partner has the common goal to develop, with a shared methodology, a collective answer to the issues linked with the preservation of the dry stone walls in the Greater Region. To promote this common heritage and “know how” several actions are developed on the whole territory:
– Raising awareness campaigns,
– Skills sharing
This collaboration will promote the preservation of dry stone walls as elements of cultural and natural heritage and will allow the creation of a collaborative economy around the dry stone walls in the Greater Region.
Compagnons Bâtisseurs collaborates in this through the implementation and support of three different international workcamps: two in Belgium and one in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
