Festival

1 ) Luxembourg Kizomba Festival

Festival Month - April

Organized by KZL, this beautiful festival will see its sixth edition next year. Focussed on the traditional form of Kizomba, the event brings together some of the best dancers, teachers, and musicians (DJs) of Kizomba from all over the world. The exotic dance form, which originated in Angola, means ‘to party’ in the local language. A soft, romantic touch to it makes Kizomba a must try form for all couples barring age, making it one of the best Luxembourg music festivals.

2 ) Winter Lights Festival

Festival Month - November

One of the most beautiful of Luxembourg festivals, this Christmas celebration runs through the month of December and turns the center of the medieval Luxembourg city into a festive paradise. The ancient fortifications and cobbled stone streets are decorated with close to over 220 trees, of which a sizeable number are Christmas trees. Christmas markets selling all kinds of Christmas stuff pop up all over the central squares, and locals and tourists swarm to these markets throughout the month of December for gifts and decorations. In addition, there are festival concerts, plays and circus performances around Centre-ville that make for a wonderful Christmas atmosphere during and around Christmas and New Year. For really special gifts, be sure to check out the souvenir shops that only open Sundays during the Winter Lights Festival.

3 ) National Day

Festival Month - June

The National Day Parade first began as a celebration of Grand Duchess Charlotte’s birthday, on 23rd of January. However, because the date was in winter, it was shifted to June 23, and the tradition has continued to this day. On the eve of the National Day, there is a change-of-guards ceremony at the Grand Ducal Palace at 4 PM that marks the beginning of festivities. The parade begins on the evening of the day itself, with torchlight processions passing through the narrow cobbled streets and main roads of the city. Simultaneously, there are free open-air concerts at major city squares, and there is a major festive gathering around the Adolphe Bridge, complete with a spectacular display of fireworks at night.
