Main festivals and celebrations in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a country of traditions. The festivals, often religious, give rise to animated and festive celebrations that punctuate the seasons.

In Luxembourg, the whole year is celebrated with festivals, religious or not, or events in the towns and villages followed largely by the local resident population.

Today the multiplicity of cultures in Luxembourg makes these festivals all the more interesting and convivial as they allow the different nationalities living in Luxembourg to know each other and to exchange, around local dishes like the grilled sausage, accompanied by local beer or crémant .
