There may be no Schueberfouer this year, but the City of Luxembourg has lined up a clutch of events to brighten up summer.
Under the umbrella of “D’Stad lieft” (my city’s alive) the capital will host a number of attractions and regular live events.
For instance, a giant big wheel and a “lounge” bar on the Kinnekswiss in the city park (the meadow area near the Glacis), starting this Saturday. The “Theaterplage”, the artificial beach area on the place du Théâtre in the centre of town, will also open this Saturday, 11 July. And the city centre will also host a number of small fairground attractions from 11 July to 13 September in the Parc Villa Vauban, at the crossing of Grand Rue with rue Aldringen, at the “Piquet” open space near the rue de la Poste, at the Roude Pëtz (near the shepherd fountain on the Grand Rue, and on the Square Jan Palach just off the place d’Armes.
Starting 17 July, the Glacis will host a vintage drive-in and sit-down cinema featuring recent blockbusters and classic films, as well as a drive-in food village. On 18 July a Summer bei der Gëlle Frau fair will open on the place de la Constitution, and various neighbourhoods in the city will host their own mini-festivals.
