Luxembourg Christmas Markets - Overview
As Luxembourg is relatively close to the UK it makes for a popular destination for those looking to visit a christmas market by coach. The most popular Luxembourg christmas markets in 2017 are those in Luxembourg City and Vianden, where you will find christmas markets offer stalls selling traditional crafts, gifts and local treats, and are ideal for a last-minute christmas shopping spree! Further information about dates and offers for Luxembourg christmas markets in 2017 will be available soon.
The city of Luxembourg annually hosts the 'Winter Lights' festival during advent, Christmas and New Year. The capital is adorned with more than 1,600m of lights creating beautifully fairy lit scenery of tree-lined streets and squares.
Luxembourg's location and mixture of languages add to the Christmas market's European flavour - you can find items from Saxony, France and more. The market has various gifts such as handcrafted items, heart-shaped gingerbread, toys and much, much more. Carol singers entertain and sooth visitors singing in Luxembourgish, French and English. Soak in the atmosphere whilst drinking Glühwein (mulled wine) or Drëpp (Schnapps). Be sure to try some local cuisine too! - Such as Mettwurscht (sausage), some pancakes, Thüringer (sausage) and the tongue twister, Gromperekichelcher (potato fritters).
Vianden Christmas Market 2017
Vianden castle is probably the most remarkable site on which to organise a Christmas Market. 'Instants de Noël - Magie de Noël' (Christmas Moments-Christmas Magic) - this is the theme of this Christmas Market inspired by the Middle Ages, which the largest feudal castle in the Eifel-Ardennes region is to organise on 17 and 18 December. The various rooms, be it the vaulted cellar, the Riders' stove, the arms room, the old kitchen, the dining room or the Knights' hall, will lend their prestigious surroundings to the sale of Christmas gifts or delicious seasonal products. In addition, there will be a live crèche. And medieval musical entertainment is sure to add to the festive atmosphere throughout these two outstanding days, when the fortress will open its doors until 7.00 pm (at other times, in winter, the castle is open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, except on 25 December and 1 January).
Esch-sur-Alzette Christmas Market 2017
Another large Christmas market is organised in Place de la Resistance, around the Ecole du Brill and at the entrance to rue de l'Alzette in Esch-sur-Alzette, from 1 to 24 December. Adults can warm up with a traditional mulled wine, served under canvas for those who feel the cold, and enjoy roasted chestnuts in the large chalet with seating for about a hundred, while various performances will keep the little ones amused. Remember that the longest pedestrian precinct in the Grand Duchy, Rue de l'Alzette, is just a step away from the Christmas Market. A look through the windows is essential, here you will discover superb early-20th century façades.
