Heavy industry was once blooming in the south of Luxembourg. The biggest city there - Esch-sur-Alzette is still a center of steel production in the country and one of the biggest employers is the steel giant - Arcelor. But the production now is reduced and part of the infrastructure stands unused.

Currently the place is being transformed into a commercial and entertainment center Belval, also there is a university campus planned. You can still see the old, unused steelworks furnaces located next to the modern buildings. It such a picturesque location but it is not possible to get really close or enter inside those castles of steel and iron.

Content of one of the above photos was slightly edited (apart from the usual touch up). Which one? ;)

Short but satisfying Sunday walk between Mullerthal and Consdorf in Luxembourg's Little Switzerland . There are many interesting trails in that area amidst rocky walls, gorges, with bridges, waterfalls...

Once before I was on a similar walk, alittle longer, on a trail from Beaufort. Recommended.

Ferrari and Lamborghini

Under the office windows there were standing, for a short time unfortunately, two nice cars. Red Ferrari 430 Scuderia and a yellow Lamborghini Murcielago. In the office interest was next to none. I would have made a photo, but in this situation the battery in my cell died.
