Leaving Luxembourg: Lisa’s favourites

Like every expat who has moved countries a few times, also I get asked – so which is your favorite country so far? And my answer is always a smile and the well rehearsed: Well, every place has its ups and downs… And every country we’ve lived in has a special place in my heart. […]

Leaving the linguistic smorgasbord

It dawned on me soon after arriving in Estonia this month. We’re not in Luxembourg anymore. No siree, Sigefroid. Unlike the Grand Duchy, there’s no linguistic smorgasbord or palette of patois to choose from. Therefore, kiss good-bye any signs like this:

Castle hunting

Luxembourg is a good place to go castle hunting, and the Grand Château d’Ansembourg is the perfect start. Less than half an hour from Luxembourg City, in quite stunning surroundings, and with the loveliest garden. The garden is what you visit here, and it’s well worth it, with old fashioned flowers and neatly trimmed bushes, ponds […]

A walk in the park

Sometimes right outside your doorstep can be such a nice place to be. Especially on a beautiful summer’s day or a warm summer evening. And if you bring your camera, new motives might appear in familiar places, like it did for Clew photographer Lisbeth Ganer when she went for a stroll in the cosiest park in […]

A Day at the Fair

– What?? You’ve never been to the Anglican Church Fair? Through the years, this is the reaction I’ve had from different people when I’ve admitted I haven’t; a reaction which always left me somewhat puzzled. I mean, what’s the big deal? So last Sunday I went to the Anglican Church Fair to find out for myself. And it […]

Run run run

Lux City in orange to the rhythm of running feet – it’s of course the ING Marathon which filled the streets last Saturday. Clew photographers contribute to the photo party: Photos by Anje Kirsch and Unni Holtedahl, 30. May 2015. ©2015 Anje Kirsch and ©2015 Unni Holtedahl

Unique in Europe

Hurry to Echternach today to experience the famous dancing procession, the last of its kind in Europe! This Roman Catholic dancing procession is held every Whit Tuesday in the streets of Echternach. It honours Wilibrord, the patron saint of Luxembourg, who established Echternach Abbey. The procession draws 12 000 – 14 000 pilgrims, whereof 8 000 – 9 000 are dancers, as […]

Wine, Taste, Enjoy!

The title says it all – once again Luxembourg wine growers invite you into their cellars, on Whitsun weekend. 

Typical Luxembourgish

Typical Luxembourgish – at least for an expat… Vakanz Luxembourgers value their holidays highly. As luck has it, Luxembourg is blessed with quite a few weeks of annual holiday, so once one holiday is over, it’s time to plan for the next! The planning often centres on a certain level of comfort – key word Fënnef […]
