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 Artnimation Luxembourg

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, …

This Saturday, I went to Echternach for the Steampunk Convention with the theme “La transformation de la Petite Marquise”.

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. Find here all the details.

Park Sennesraich in Lullange

Sënnesräich Park in Lullange

This past weekend, we had some family fun at Sënnesräich Park in Lullange. Have you visited  this place yet? It’s great! The kids were delighted by the playground and the green labyrinth. The garden is open every day: While the park itself is nice, but may not seem very special under Luxembourgish standards (there’s a great park everywhere you go), everything changes when you enter the 5 senses rooms, the indoor part of the complex. Now, that’s a well done leisure area, both for kids and grown ups. They have so much fun things to do there! The 5 senses rooms are …

rue philippe II luxembourg city

Art on Rue Philippe II

I saw a few installations on Rue Philippe II in Luxembourg City over the past years, but I never had the curiosity to learn about them. This month however, I got intrigued by the futuristic and rather unusual installation and I did some digging. According to City magazine, those big pipes you can see above the street in the center of Luxembourg are called Air Deluxe and have been installed by HeHe, a French artist duo based in Paris (Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen). The temporary installation was selected by Casino Luxembourg out of 7 shortlisted works. The concept is …
