Media: The December edition of Delano, released Thursday, helps readers enjoy the holidays and ring in the new year.
Robert Goeres may be the de facto “godfather” of rue Philippe II’s high-end retailers, but he says that Luxembourg City “still has a soul.” The luxury watch seller is the subject of Delano’s cover story, taking readers inside the global luxury industry and the capital’s shopping scene. While Goeres argues that Luxembourg is an increasingly interesting retail destination, he believes there is still plenty of room for international brands to grow in the capital.
Keeping with the holiday theme, the December issue features highlights from Amcham’s turkey fête; Delano’s guide to local Luxembourg gift ideas; the best location for a family friendly New Year’s Eve, and four other ways to help kids beat cabin fever over the school break; and Liina Munari explains what she misses about Finnish Christmas.
For readers whose new year’s resolution is to improve a foreign tongue, this edition has tips on how to learn languages at the office.
Also looking ahead to 2013, and beyond, Delano examines the future of Luxembourg City now that it has passed the 100,000 resident mark; the EU agency which has changed course; and how companies are turning “risk” into business assets.
In addition, US ambassador Robert Mandell talks about how he took up painting.
Delano, the English language monthly for Luxembourg’s international community, is available at newsstands across the Grand Duchy and online at www.delano.lu. And don’t forget to download Delano’s Ten Things To Do This Week, our free app for iPhone & iPad.
