The tour will take us to:

  • the Grand-Duke's former hunting reserve and wild boar feeding place (historic site)
  • the very recently inaugurated impressive visitor's center "Biodiversum" in the commune of SCHENGEN, situated in a Natura2000 and RAMSAR wetland-area with a particularly rich avifauna, surrounded by vineyards and hosting, of course, wild boar, a complicated constellation!
