Located in southern Luxembourg, the Red Rock region takes its name from the bright red iron ore which was once the root of Luxembourg’s steel industry success. Now the former mining zone is a key tourist area, thanks to mountain bike and hiking trails, and a bustling arts scene. The cities in this region are resolutely modern and dynamic: cultural offerings include street theatre, rock festivals and regular concerts. RedRock Mountain Bike Trails opened earlier this year with four major routes (Haard-Black, Haard-Red, Ellergronn and Lalléngerbierg) of different difficulties, totalling 100 kilometres.
