On Friday, our colleagues from RTL participated in a guided tour on the "Prënzebierg" between Pétange and Niederkorn.
It is now possible to become a guide in Luxembourg for one day. The initiative "Guide for one day" was launched by the government a month ago and has been a great success so far.
The project allows private citizens to act as local guides for one day and show their favourite spots to anybody who wants to join, all on a voluntary basis. Tours are held in different languages.
The trip to the Prinzenberg in Pétange is one of many possible destinations. Guide Sophie Forchesato is determined to show people the beautiful wildlife area on the mountainside: "I love this place and thought the initiative would be a great chance for me to share this magical place with other people."
Along the way, Sophie dives into the area's history and talks about the exhaustion of iron ore, the archaeological remains on the Titelberg, and the Fond-de-Gras. Sophie believes the south has more to offer than people might think, and her visitors seem impressed with the area.
Naturally, all Covid-19 related safety regulations were upheld during the tour: "Unfortunately, I had to refuse one participant so far because the group that day had exceeded the maximum of ten people otherwise."
Minister for Tourism Lex Delles supports the initiative and praised the guides for their great success. If you are interested in joining of the tours, you can register online via the following website. Reservations can be made up to two day in advance. "Guide for one day" continues until 13 September.
