Today's Good IdeaCelebrate Duke’s day!
One of the largest celebrations ever to be hosted in the Grand Duchy is fast approaching: June 23rd will mark Luxembourg’s National Day! The main (nocturnal) activities are highlighted and celebrated on the eve of the 22nd in Luxembourg City itself and also in Esch-sur-Alzette, while Thursday marks the official festive program (Military Parade, gunshots, Te Deum). On Wednesday evening, Luxembourg City transforms into one of the largest open-air discos across the Grand Region. As DJs and musicians create a vibrant party atmosphere, you will also be able to tease your culinary senses across the city at food stalls. For those prefering a more somber celebration, they might choose to follow the torchlight procession passing by the the avenue de la Gare, the Viaduct, the boulevard F.D. Roosevelt and the rue Philippe II at 9.10 p.m., followed by a large firework show illuminating the Parc Dräi Eechelen at 11 p.m. (places to see the firework: boulevards Ulveling and Thorn, Corniche, montée de Clausen and montée de Pfaffenthal, côte d’Eich, Cents, Fetschenhof and Grund, Clausen and Pfaffenthal. Experience Luxembourg personally these days! Download the program flyer on the City of Luxembourg's website (only in French language).Read on >
Today's Good IdeaSimply play to your heart’s delight…
The sun is shining, you’re in a good mood, strolling through the idyllic streets of Luxembourg city. What would make you even happier? Music of course! And then you stumble upon a piano which you’re invited to play - or listen to others playing. Due to popular demand, the initiative “My Urban Piano” has, from 9th to 19th of June, once more placed 16 pianos in public places throughout the city. The list of the various locations can be found here. Luxembourg city also launched a contest: if you publish a small recording of your little concert or your antics around the piano, either on Facebook or on Youtube, and tag it with #luxembourgcity and #myurbanpiano2016, you may even be the lucky winner of an iPad. Just send the link to your video, with your name, address and telephone number, to firstname.lastname@example.org.Read on >
Groceries / Delicatessen
“Come à la maison”, eat as if at home.
Experiencing home cooking, that’s what eating at “Come à la maison” feels like. You will discover Italian specialities in a setting that is truly unique in Luxembourg. The restaurant can be found in the building “Am Garage” (opposite the impressive Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (BIL) headquarters), which also houses the furniture shop “Robin du Lac”. After finding your way through the interesting furniture and decorations displayed in the former car show rooms, you will immediately feel at home with Morane Daulard and her family. Rather than a cosy living room, you will be fussed over in the spacious industrial charm that will remind you of a transformed loft. Either eat-in, take-away sandwiches or ready-made dishes, or you could choose from the broad range of meat cuts and cheese at the delicatessen counter. Every Sunday “Come à la maison” offers a brunch (12 to 4 p.m.) and on Tuesday evenings don’t miss “La table de Franco” (reservation required). This set menu dinner starts at 20:00, an ideal venue to finish a busy day with a delicious meal. Gluten-free pasta is currently available and a wider range of allergy free products is expected soon.
