This characterful capital may only cover a small area of the hilly landscape, but it’s a big enough city to be full of surprises.
With world-class museums sitting alongside fine dining destinations and scenic viewpoints.
Festivals and events
Luxembourg is a city that loves to celebrate, with annual events of every flavour that showcase the many different sides of the city. The Night of the Cathedrals and the Museum Festival, for instance, both take place in May and celebrate some of the capital’s finest attractions. And there’s much more to look forward to throughout the year.
In summer, the city comes to life with the strains of live music. The Fête de la Musique in June, Festival MeYouZik and Blues’n Jazz Rallye in July all use open-air venues to host an international selection of musicians.
Many of Luxembourg’s events are business-minded. Every March, the Springbreak Luxembourg event draws in delegates from around the world, each looking to exhibit products in areas such as gardening, electrical appliances and kitchens. The autumn equivalent, the Home and Living Expo, takes place in October, with companies coming to show off their building and renovation products.
December is a great time to visit, as Luxembourg comes to life with Christmas markets that bring a typical mix of cute stalls selling baked goods, handicrafts and mulled wine by the gallon.
