Luxembourg is a country that knows how to keep its traditions alive. The population celebrates traditional events in a festive and popular way.

Whatever their nationality of origin, the inhabitants participate spontaneously. Everyone is looking for contact opportunities.

In Luxembourg, celebrations often stem from the country’s Catholic religious tradition. Luxembourg’s popular events are still going strong. These traditional festivals are widely followed by the local resident population. In most cases, they will result in public holidays. These celebrations create a link between the different communities present in the Grand Duchy.
