Just Arrived has selected for you several original ways to celebrate Halloween with your children in Luxembourg or its surroundings!
The traditional Trauliichtwochen in the Ardennes
Luxembourg’s traditional “trauliichtwochen” (beetroot week) takes place this year from 20 October to 2 November at the Robbesscheier Tourist Center. As an ancestral tradition, the beetroot week consists in parading in the streets with “Traulichter“, i.e. beet home-made lanterns reproducing scary faces. With this, we chase away Autmn and Winter bad spirits so that everyone can get through the bad season and be in good health for Spring.
Thie year, the Trauliichtwochen parade and activities will take place on saturday 27 and wedenesday 31 ctober. For more information, contact the Tourist Center Robbesscheier – 1, Frummeschgaass L-9766 Munshausen, firstname.lastname@example.org.
