Numerous tourist attractions and local products
On September 11, the Minister for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises and for Tourism, Lex Delles, visited “Ramborn Cider Haff” in Born. The Minister wanted to get an overview of the tourist offer of the farm and site of the company “Ramborn Cider Co.” producing Cider and Perry from local apples and pears. The scope of the visit was to learn more about the numerous activities of the “Cider Haff“ to promote tourism, thus contributing to the Nation Branding of the Grand Duchy. It should be mentioned that “Ramborn Cider Haff” received the Luxembourg “Tourism Innovation Award 2018”, with sustainability, innovation and biodiversity being the key elements of this award. The farm in Born is located in the midst of orchards with hundreds of different fruit trees, some of which are more than 300 years old.
Gold grows on trees
According to CEO and co-founder of “Ramborn Cider Co.”, Carlo Hein: “Both, people living in Luxembourg and tourists can come and discover the Mullerthal region, the region of the Sûre valley and the towns Echternach, Rosport or Born. In the picturesque village ofBorn visitors also find ’Rent-a-Bike’ facilities, allowing them to explore the region by bike according to the motto ’Een Dag an der Regioun’ (a day to discover the region). The starting and/or finishing point of the ’Route 1’ of the Mullerthal Trail is the Ramborn farm - so hikes and excursions can end with a visit to the ’Ramborn Cider Haff’. Gastronomically the restaurant ’Op der Terrasse’ in Born offers a unique terrace along the Sûre, serving Cider on the tap or the award-winning Ramborn Ciders and Perry. True to our slogan ’Gold grows on trees’our ’Farmhouse Dry Cider’ as well as ’Perry’ received gold medals at this year’s ’International Brewing and Cider Awards’ in London. We constantly take care of the trees and orchards in our region and we have already planted a large number of them with varieties of apples and pears that have sometimes already been forgotten.“
Inspirational guided tours and “à la carte” events
Paul Jeitz, who is in charge of guided tours through “Ramborn Cider Haff“ is mighty proud of the possibilities offered at the farm: “Visitors from all over the world can discover the universe of cider, take part in guided tours, have a look at the pressing and production facilities and learn more about the history of our beverages. Visitors also have access to the old cellar where they can witness how aging in old whiskey or rum barrels can influence the taste and flavours of cider. They can explore the typical character of Luxembourg’s orchards by trying our variety-pure cider. The ’Ramborn Cider Haff’also provides the ideal place to organize ’à la carte’ events for groups, associations or companies. And of course, all our products are available for purchase on site.”
