One of the preoccupations of the local action group is to let people discover the Miselerland as a great tourist destination. Because of that it decided to change the Miselerland-magazine into another with more information about the region, the tourist offers and the cultural activities… All those information are also available on the website of the Miselerland.
The main activity of the action group is to develop the bicycle touring within the project « Velofueren am Miselerland » which objective is to let the Miselerland become the destination par excellence for doing bicycle touring. On the website of the Miselerland (section tourism) you will find a lot of maps of the different bicycle routes. You can also fin information about the places in the cantons of Grevenmacher and Remich where you will be able to rent bicycles on the link at the right side of this page.
The local ginger group also wants to develop the aquatic tourism in the region.

Moreover the ginger group protects the orchards, that have a “important cultural, educational and tourist value? according to the responsible person of the ginger group Philippe Eschenauer. It is a question of developing the family tourism in the orchards. The ginger group intends creating a nature discovery centre “Pomarium?, that will enable the group to make visitors aware of the fruit heritage thanks to 4 main topics: education, adventure, research and products.



The regional products of the Miselerland



The LAG encourages the regional production in the Miselerland. The region possesses a great variety of products like fruits, juices, distilled products, jam, honey but also meat, cheese, bread, wine, mushroom and legumes. The LEADER-programme enables the development of quality labels like the yellow label „Initiativ Bongert“ of the foundation « Hëllef fir d’Natur ». This label is awarded to cultivators who adopted a durable management for their ochards. The label helps them having the best selling prize. The label of the Luxembourg association for biological agriculture was awarded to 6 firms working in the field of biological production of the Miselerland.
