Whereas for many people the village of Mondorf-les-Bains is synonymous with thermal baths, its park is an equally evocative symbol that brings back memories. Who hasn't spent a Sunday afternoon with their family watching the ducks or the Gander? Who hasn't enjoyed the peace and quiet of a stroll along its paths lined with majestic trees?
An integral part of the Health Centre, the Mondorf-les-Bains, Thermal Park is a spot of greenery spanning more than 45 hectares and thereby helping to make the Thermal Estate ever so unique.
a piece of luxembourg's heritage
The park was created in 1886 by the illustrious French landscape architect Edouard André, who incidentally wrote the Traité pour la composition des parcs et jardins [Treatise on the Composition of Parks and Gardens] in 1879, and designed the famous parks of Monte Carlo, Euxinograd, Montevideo and... Luxembourg City (Municipal Park). Edouard André was a specialist in 19th century of English gardens and particularly in sunken gardens with bridges. In Mondorf he designed a quiet, restful park where it is pleasant to walk along shady paths and to relax on one of the many benches. Today the park offers many family activities that respect the original idea of its creator, namely to enable everyone to enjoy nature to the fullest.
Thirty people are busy day after day, season after season, looking after this gem of Luxembourg's natural heritage. Their work is part of the differentiated management of green spaces through an ecological approach in terms of the machinery and products used, as well as of respect for native species, biodiversity and energy resources. The flora and fauna can develop in a healthy way to be admired by visitors to the park.
Located in the immediate vicinity of the Orangerie, the French garden extends elegantly the terrace of this beautiful building, which was designed for receptions and refined banquets. It blends into the thermal park thanks to its low hedgerows, fountains and sculptures. It was created in 2002 following the renovation of the Orangerie.
Ideal entertainment for families, this landscaped 18-hole golf course is fully integrated in nature: An original way to have fun in the great outdoors. More original than a miniature golf course, the easy-golf course is a natural addition to the park's list of attractions.
This area consists of flowering meadows with more than 17 varieties of ornamental flowers. It is an invitation to discovery and learning. Nature can express and renew itself here by offering us a myriad of colours and scents. To be discovered as a family.
on the Gander
As soon as the fine weather returns, the Mondorf Tourist Office makes boats and pedal boats available to strollers for a trip on the Gander, a small river which serves as a border demarcation between France and Luxembourg.
Barouche rides are also organized on fine summer days.
Les ruches du Parc
On sait aujourd’hui à quel point les abeilles sont importantes pour notre écosystème. La variété des essences et des fleurs du Parc thermal offre à ces butineuses infatigables un terrain de « chasse » de prédilection. Pas moins d'une quinzaine de ruches produisent chaque année un miel bio délicieux, dont le Chef n’hésite pas à faire usage dans ses recettes destinées aux restaurants du domaine.
A l'automne 2020, ce ne sont pas moins de 150 arbres de 9 espèces et 52 variétés de fruits différents qui ont été plantés dans le tout nouveau verger du parc thermal.
Les espèces : pommier, poirier, cerisier, noyer, mirabellier, prunier, pêcher, cognassier, abricotier.
the park's beehives
We now know how important bees are to our ecosystem. The variety of species and flowers in the Thermal Park serves as a favourite “hunting ground” for these tireless foragers. No fewer than 3 beehives produce a delicious organic honey every year, which the Chef does not hesitate to use in his recipes for the restaurants of the Domaine thermal.
flowers in the park
The park has two major flowering periods: one in the spring with more than 70,000 multicoloured tulip bulbs, and one in the summer, when its meadows are adorned with the most beautiful summer flowers.
The amphitheatre provides an ideal setting for your scenic events. In the middle of nature, the sounds spread naturally thanks to flawless acoustics. The stage can also accommodate an orchestra or even a DJ and the forecourt can be used as a dance floor under the starry sky.
Let’s get the party started.
The two clay tennis courts at the Thermal Park are accessible during the day from the beginning of May to the end of October - booking required.
