Christmas in Luxembourg

Oh boy, oh boy, is that time of the year again, when Christmas comes to Luxembourg city! For those who haven’t lived here for long, let me tell you: besides spring, summer and autumn, winter is the best place to be in Luxembourg. No, not much snow here in the Grand Duchy, but usually from 23 November until 23 December, the city turns on the holiday lights and the Christmas markets open for a whole month of feasts and celebration. There will be 4 (yes, four!) Christmas markets in the City Centre, beautiful festive lights all around, an Ice Ring …

Schueberfouer Luxembourg

Schueberfouer

Schueberfouer has been around for almost 700 years. In 2017, it will be its 677th edition, between August 23rd and September 11th. It’s the biggest and oldest funfair in Luxembourg and some say it’s the oldest in the world, although this is questionable, as it was just a huge market at first, when it was founded by John the Blind, on 20th of October 1340. The shows, concerts and fun games only appeared after 450 years, in the 18th century, and the Schueberfouer was moved to its actual site, in the place called Glacis Square today (Fouerplaatz) – which usually …

Street A(rt)nimation

Photos from Street A(rt)nimation 2017 in Luxembourg city! For those who don’t know, leaving Luxembourg is extremely easy, as it is very well connected with the rest of Europe. Also, considering that most people living in Luxembourg city are expats, there would be high chances for the city to be pretty empty during the summer. But they thought about this and they found a solution, called Summer in the City! Every year, from 21 June to 7 September, the city puts on festive clothes and celebrates the most beautiful season of the year. Festivals, concerts, street animation, a huge funfair, …

Dear Tripod, I’m sorry

Dear Tripod, I woke up this morning thinking about you again. Flashes of our wonderful times together passed before my eyes, while I was still too sleepy to understand anything else, yet I was well aware that I have failed you. I’m sorry, Tripod. What a history do we have, right? We had explored every little corner of Luxembourg and we’d seen half of Europe together. Days and nights, just you and me on empty streets, above misty hills or under lonely bridges, shooting countless photos and videos. You were too heavy at times, but I held you. When I was …

Steam Punk Echternach

Steampunk Convention Echternach

This Saturday, I went to Echternach for the Steampunk Convention with the theme “La transformation de la Petite Marquise”. To be honest, I don’t know much about steampunk, but I’m not really saying no to a photo opportunity. I found lovely costumes, nice music, bought a few souvenirs and had fun.   See more photos in the slideshow below: The convention continues on Sunday as well (6th of August), at the historical market square in Echternach, Luxembourg.
