« Fuesend » - Carnival time

Carnival celebrations in Luxembourg

The Carnival period follows the Liichtmessdag (Day of Candlemas) and continues until the 4th Sunday of Lent, the day of the Bretzelsonndeg (Sunday of the Pretzel).

This period of Carnival gives rise to multiple cavalcades, processions masked and disguised for young and old, in the streets of the biggest cities of Luxembourg.

Balls are also held throughout the country.

Traditionally, on the eve of the Carnival holidays, children disguised themselves in school.
