“Guide for one day”, a project for unofficial ambassadors to showcase the many facets of Luxembourg, kicks off today for the second year running this time with Luxembourg’s grand duchess taking part.
Maria Teresa will be among the 37 guides who have volunteered to lead a free tour as part of the second edition of the economy ministry initiative.
According to the website, she will offer a tour of the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg City. Foreign affairs minister Jean Asselborn, An American in Luxembourg blogger Mike McQuaide, and professional cyclists Fränk Schleck and Christine Majerus are organising cycle tours. Meanwhile, British ambassador to Luxembourg John Marshall will organise an 11-kilometre run around the capital.
The Luxembourg economy ministry first launched the scheme in 2017 when 37 people rallied to offer some 61 tours and activities. This year a total 74 tours spanning hikes, culture, sports and relaxation are on offer enabling people to get an insider’s take on various parts of the country.
The activities offered will run until 15 September. It is not too late to register a tour. To qualify, tours must last no more than 90 minutes and take up to 10 people.
