Where to celebrate Halloween in Luxembourg?
Halloween activities for the joy of your children
Fancy-dress ball? Creative activities? Door-to-door? Although this is not strictly speaking a Luxembourgish tradition, Halloween not only pleases the Anglo-Saxon community of Luxembourg, but also all children. Halloween is fast approaching and, as usually, many parents do not know yet what to do with their children. Just Arrived has selected for you several original ways to celebrate Halloween with your children in Luxembourg or its surroundings!
The traditional Trauliichtwochen at the Tourist Center “Robbesscheier”
Luxembourg’s traditional “trauliichtwochen” (beetroot week) takes place this year from 21 October to 3 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 28 October. For more information, contact the Tourist Center Robbesscheier.
