5 ways to jazz up your lunch hour in Luxembourg
Getting out for your lunch hour can help clear the mind and might even boost your productivity in the afternoon.
Here are 5 ways to make the most of that lunch hour.
Attend a concert
The Philharmonie regularly holds lunch concerts. In addition to hearing a half-hour of music by either its own orchestra or a visiting musician, attendees can also opt to follow the show with a “Slow Food” lunch.
Dine al fresco
Weather permitting, Kyosk is open for lunch during the warmer months, with a number of vegetarian and/or vegan options. It’s an ideal place to lounge in the sun or squeeze in a game of pétanque too.
Lunch and learn
Use your lunch hour to network or gain new skills. Take a look at the University of Luxembourg and Sacred Heart University agendas for their lunchtime offerings or consider attending a luncheon through one of the many business chambers in Luxembourg. Paperjam Club also holds some lunchtime events for networking.
Get local produce
The weekly market on place Guillaume II isn’t just open on Saturdays. Each Wednesday, from 7:30a.m. to 1:30p.m., it’s also open. It’s a pleasant way to enjoy a leisurely stroll or sample some cheeses, but you can also bring the market back to the workplace by purchasing fruits as snacks for that mid-afternoon slump or choosing some flowers to spruce up your office.
A number of companies in Luxembourg have their own gyms, running groups or fitness memberships, so check with your company or HR representative on how to get involved. If team fitness isn’t your thing, consider joining a lunchtime pilates or yoga course, plenty of which are offered in Luxembourg, some even outdoors during the warmer months. Or just rent a Vel’oh! for an hour and tour the city on a bike.
