On this section you hike through the Prënzebierg - Giele Botter nature reserve, through the Fond-de-Gras and through the sleepy little village of Lasauvage, which lies directly on the French border. You walk through dense forests and renatured mining areas and can discover how nature has reclaimed the landscape.
On the route you will discover many remnants of the eventful past in the mining area: sections of the route of the former "Bremswee" of the "Buggies" for example - those lorries with which the precious ore was transported away from the mining area. In the Prënzebierg - Giele Botter area you can admire man-made terraces where quarrying dug deep into the rock. You might even discover the tunnel entrance, which is inhabited by bats nowadays. The path is otherwise richly filled with old witnesses of the industrial past: electricity pylons, remains of a rail network and more. From the village of Lausauvage in the direction of Differdange, the path also leads along the "Crosnière" stream.
