We are entering the biggest week of the year! National Day! Celebrating all things in Luxembourg, put on your dancing shoes and ring in the first days of summer!
Pick 1: National extravaganza
You probably know by now that the evening of June the 22nd opens THE event of the year in Luxembourg. Locals celebrate their National Day on the 23rd, but celebrations begin the night before: concerts and DJ sessions will be taking place in all three City Center squares, then there’s the torchlight procession where you can even spot the Grand-Duke! To end the night: the most spectacular fireworks launched from the Adolphe bridge.
And for the National Day itself, also known as the Duke’s Day, you’ll witness an official ceremony, a 21 gun salute, a ceremony on the Avenue de La Liberté, a big parade and an official afternoon mass. Plus, check out the program held by your Commune. All 105 of them will be celebrating too!
Date: June 22nd and 23rd
Venue: Around the City Center and in each Commune
