Brexit in Luxembourg

From January 31st 2020, at midnight, the United Kingdom and the European Union parted ways after 47 years and the British community in Luxembourg marked the moment with deep sadness. I joined them to see how the Brexit looks from Luxembourg. It feels a bit weird to come back to the blog with a sad event, but it was a historic moment and I simply had to document it. I started the evening at the church of St Alphonse on rue des Capucins, where the Anglican Church of Luxembourg organised a Brexit vigil, together with British Immigrants Living In Luxembourg …

International Celtic Festival

This weekend, we went to the International Celtic Festival Bealtaine, in Neihaischen, near Schuttrange, Luxembourg. It’s not the first time we visit it, as the festival reached its 8th edition this year, but this time I also took some photos: The kids loved it, as they had plenty activities to choose from: We almost bought some creepy stuff, but we decided not to redecorate this year: We watched the Celts at work: Or just chilling: And we went to see the gladiators fight, but I really don’t remember who won (they all managed to survive): While we were leaving, a …

Luxembourg Science Center

Recently, I took the kids to Luxembourg Science Center, in Differdange. I didn’t know about this place but, as I learned, it’s a great science and discovery center for everyone, kids or grown-ups!   I really liked the fact that you can find activities suitable for all ages, from small children to adults. All discovery stations have complete, multi-language info on the experiments, so you will probably learn a few things while having a lot of fun! The little one took all the kinetic sand for himself, until I promised him I will buy a bag to play at home. …

Snow in Luxembourg

Snow in Luxembourg is so rare that each time I started to write this post the snow was already gone before I published it. Winters in Luxembourg are pretty mild, but every once in a while it starts snowing and, sometimes, we have proper snow for a few hours or days. Yet, in that short snowy period, Luxembourg city becomes a magical fairy tale land. I was lucky enough to be able to photograph the snow this winter and, to me, it was one of the best photo sessions ever. Partly because it rarely happens, but mostly because the way …

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 …
