Today's Good IdeaMany events – one calendar.
Where is the next weekly market in Luxembourg? Which shopping center has special offers on? When is Luxembourg’s first “Braderie”, which means the first street market of the season? Lots of questions, one calendar: on Goodidea.lu you’ll get a good overview of all current and forthcoming events. There is a lot on offer from Luxembourgish businesses and traders. Spring also sees the launch of the market season; while there are weekly markets of fresh produce throughout the year, now with the warmer weather you can also visit flea markets and clothes markets. One of the biggest and most varied is the so-called “Glacismaart”, which offers a diverse range of products ranging from antiques, to clothes and fresh produce. It takes place once a month on the ‘Place de Glacis’ in Luxembourg City. In many country villages local businesses also organize events, including their renowned “Braderies”, which invite you to bargain hunt or just have a stroll. Luxembourg’s shopping centers do not only offer a wide variety of brands; they also put forward an exciting calendar of events. Most of these you’ll find on Goodidea.lu. Sunday shopping days and end of season sales….you shouldn’t miss these. And last but not least, Luxembourg hosts many exhibitions and fairs, in particular Luxexpo in the Kirchberg exhibition halls. Towards the end of they year, Goodidea.lu will of course keep you posted on the country’s many Christmas markets. Have a look at our calendar here.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaA fairy tale circus!
From the 14th of April to the 3rd of May 2015 an old friend will be back in Luxembourg: “Circus Roncalli”. This traditional German circus troupe is an absolute must for European circus fans, not just those in Luxembourg! About 80 original circus caravans together with their classic marquee transform part of the ‘Place du Glacis’, near Luxembourg’s city center, into a dreamlike circus town. Under the Big Top, in front of up to 1,500 spellbound spectators, acrobats and clowns perform to the highest standard. The stunning and hilarious acts are accompanied by the musical delights produced by the seven-strong Roncalli Royal Orchestra. By the way, the only animals you will see in the arena are ponies and horses. Looking forward to Roncalli?! Additional information and tickets can be found here.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaDandelions – they’re not only for bunnies.
The names people use for April’s vegetable of the month are far from flattering: milk-witch, monks-head, pee-the-bed. They all refer to dandelion, which itself is derived from the French "dent de lion" meaning "lion’s tooth" due to the shape of the leaves. From the beginning of March to the end of April, this salad grows in abundance in Luxembourg and can be eaten as a delicious salad before it starts to flower. Garden expert Claude Kirsch recommends dressing this salad with a simple vinaigrette made from oil, vinegar, pepper, salt and onions. The combination of raspberry vinegar and a neutral oil (not strong olive oil!) creates a special flavour. Add a hardboiled egg, bacon and a few croutons to round off your dandelion salad. If you think this "light" version is not enough to get you through the day, add 3-4 potatoes for an extra portion of energy. Mix the mashed potatoes with the vinaigrette – that’s the way the farmers did it in the olden days! So where do you find dandelions? One of the best places is the weekly market in Luxembourg-city where you can also discover many other good ideas. All the market events are listed in our agenda.Read on >
