When a major industrial tourism site honours its past by enhancing its natural heritage and looking resolutely to the future, this gives Rumelange. If this town in the canton of Esch-sur-Alzette is known for its famous Musée national des mines, it never ceases to surprise us. Shall we take you there ?
Rumelange sold its first iron ore in 1863. And it has also distinguished itself in another sector, since it was here that Luxembourg's first cement factory was created in 1894. Today, the company has become Cimalux and produces 1,450,000 tonnes of cement each year, while Cogifer Kihn, founded in 1893, is known worldwide for its production of railroad switches.
Rumelange is only 5.1 km from the A13 motorway and boasts a railway station. It is the terminus of the 6C line, which comes from Noertzange in 9 minutes. From here, you can reach Luxembourg City in 17 minutes. It therefore takes less than half an hour by train to reach the capital without increasing the carbon footprint.

To relax at the weekend and explore the industrial and natural heritage of the municipality, two walking trails of 9.5 and 10 km have been set up.
