Luxembourg Major Events

Emaischen
April 13th, 2020 | Luxembourg City, Nospelt

Emaischen is a folk festival that is a uniquely Luxembourgish celebration.

Emaischen occurs on Easter Monday. It is celebrated with a festival behind the Grand Duke’s Palace on the Fishmarket square. Above all this event is famous for small whistling birds called “Péckvillercher”. Péckvillercher are made of baked clay. They are only sold on this special day. Traditionally, lovers exchanged Péckvillercher. But today, they are popular for all Luxembourgers. There is also a larger festival in the village of Nospelt. Emaischen is a favorite for native Luxembourgers.

The hoppers dress in white shirts and dark pants. Also they hop to a polka melody.  Almost everyone follows the procession through the medieval streets of Echternach to an important local church.

Nationalfeierdag | Luxembourg’s National Holiday
June 22nd-23rd, 2020 | Luxembourg

This is an exciting one of the Luxembourg nationality events. We officially consider this the Grand Duke’s Birthday, although Grand Duke Henri himself was born on a different day. It’s a must-see for any Luxembourger.

Luxembourg designed National Day to celebrate the Grand-Duke’s birthday originally. It started once with the birthday of Grand Duchess Charlotte, which is on January 23rd. Her birthday was in winter, so the celebrations were postponed to a later date, on June 23rd.

The date did not change even after her reign. On June 22nd, towns across Luxembourg organize feasts, and there is a significant fireworks show in Luxembourg City. On June 23rd, there’s a military parade in Kirchberg, Luxembourg City and an afternoon Te Deum at the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Note that Government Offices are closed Tuesday, June 23rd.
