About Luxembourg

With the motto ‘we want to remain what we are’ and an unyielding spirit, the tiny nation of Luxembourg has proudly stood between France, Germany and Belgium for over 200 years. With the constant threat of losing both the country’s cultural identity and independence to its neighbours, it’s incredible that Luxembourg has been one of the most active supporters of the EU initiative. While it may be one of the smallest countries in Europe, it’s easy to see that Luxembourg has a personality that’s larger than life.

Visitors who’re are curious about what makes Luxembourg so unique should make sure to visit both the metropolitan capital of Luxembourg City as well as the quiet countryside which promises a rustic getaway. The best time to visit the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as it is officially named, is around the end of June when the weather is at its best and you can make the most of the national celebrations. If you’re looking for an interesting alternative destination to the usual European countries then Luxembourg is the perfect choice.

Food & Drink in Luxembourg

Luxembourg has a superb selection of local delicacies, often the result of combining the cuisine of both Germany and France. Fish lovers should make a point of sampling Fritür, a fried collection of local fish often served with chips or potatoes, while those who prefer red-meat will want to look out for the country’s national dish judd mat gaardebounen, smoked pork collar with broad beans. If you don’t fancy either of the meaty dishes Luxembourg has you covered with Quetscheflued, sweet plum tart.

Events in Luxembourg

As you’d expect from a country that has been independent for over 200 years, Luxembourg has several festivals that are completely unique to the country. We’ve picked out a couple that’ll make for a fantastic high-point in any holiday.

Dancing Procession of Echternach

The city of Echternach, to the north-east of Luxembourg City, becomes a party capital once a year when it hosts its dancing procession. Featuring dancers from all over the country, the procession marks the start of a day of festivities complete with delicious food and a series of spectacular street performances.

National Day

On the 23rd of June each year the entire country of Luxembourg transforms into a gigantic party state. National Day is a day celebrating everything Luxembourg, from the country’s signature dishes to the art and music of the nation. If you want to get a sense of Luxembourg’s culture, visiting during National Day is the best way.
