Audio and information

The woodlands of “Seitert”

Take your time to stop for a moment, close your eyes and pay attention to the sounds and odors you can perceive in the forest.

The “Seitert” is probably the favorite forest of most people of Diekirch who like to come here to relax, recover or work out.

When the forest was to be cleared in the 1840s, the people of Diekirch stood up for the preservation of the “Seitert”. Thus, the beech tree population of the year 1840 has been preserved until today and has  even been specifically rejuvenated step by step. Local animals and plants can live here without being disturbed – the town even pays the game tenant an annual compensation so he doesn't hunt here.

Thanks to its fitness trail and many instructive boards the way does not only provide for physical strengthening, but also for learning quite a lot about the coexistence of humans and nature. Maybe you want to try out one or the other exercise on the way. But don't forget to save some energy for the next phase of the donkey challenge...
