Grand Duke Opens Grünewald Forest to the Public
Grand Duke Henri yesterday opened the forest of Grünewald to the public, following an agreement made on January 16th between the State of Luxembourg and the Grand Duke that the forest would be put at the disposal of the state and its people during certain times of the year and that the state would pay for a portion of the maintenance and upkeep of the Grünewald.
As part of the restructuring of the Grand Ducal properties, it was hoped that the forest was going to be bought by the state, but they lacked sufficient funds to do so, so this new agreement was reached. Since the state lacked the funds to purchase the private forest Henri made another agreement with the state. Forty-eight new “habitat zones” were also opened today, which are for the re-population of certain plant and animal species and for protected areas for certain animals and plants already living there.
