Main feasts and celebrations in Luxembourg
Luxembourg is a country of traditions. The feasts, often religious and coupled with holidays, give rise to festive celebrations.
The multiplicity of cultures in Luxembourg makes these celebrations and other meetings all the more interesting and friendly as they allow people of various nationalities to get to know each other and to exchange around local dishes such as grilled sausages or potato galettes, to savour with local beer or Crémant.
