Curious people can see a different side of Luxembourg by signing up for a tour with one of the scores of volunteer guides during this year’s “Guide for one day” initiative.
Now in its third year, the scheme from Luxembourg’s tourism ministry runs from 29 June to 15 September. During that time, anyone can register a free guided tour in the country or sign up for a tour, space pending.
The initiative is aimed at people living and or working in Luxembourg and was set up to help people explore less-known places in fun ways.
In the past, guides have included well-known people including Luxembourg’s Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa, as well as Olympic cyclist Christine Majerus. And there are no limits to the creativity and originality with which people devise their tours: past visits have included a pub crawl, a postage-stamp themed tour and a guided train ride.
