As part of this INTERREG VA project (duration 4 years), the Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall is working on the topic of dry stone walls. Together with five project partners from the Greater Region and numerous strategic partners, we are putting in place an action plan to preserve and rebuild dry stone walls.
The aim of the project is to raise awareness of this ancient building technique, to understand its past and origins, re-establish expertise and sustainably ensure its valorisation by embedding it again in our ways of thinking and habits.
In order to achieve this aim, an inventory is currently being conducted in order to locate a large number of the existing dry stone wall structures and constructions and to identify the existing damage and problems so as then to be able to carry out targeted repairs and restorations.
Courses and further training courses on the dry stone wall construction technique are provided in the context of the project, both for both the public at large and professionals.
In the following video, kids explain the project “Dry walls”. You can find all the videos of this series here.
If you would like to find out more about dry stone walls, or if you would like to inform us about walls that are hidden or have disappeared, or if you have any other questions, please feel free to contact the project manager in charge!
