Inspiring, rejuvenating, radically different and free to experience

"LUGA – Luxembourg Urban Garden" is being organised by the Ministry of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development (Ministère de l'Agriculture, de la Viticulture et du Développement rural) and the City of Luxembourg, in close collaboration with the Luxembourg Horticultural Federation (Fédération Horticole Luxembourgeoise).

"Rendering the invisible visible" is the common thread connecting the exhibition's 15 main themes, namely the environment, agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, food, biodiversity, heritage, the arts, culture, well-being, sustainable development, the circular economy, social inclusion, technological innovation and tourism.

LUGA 2025

From 7 May to 18 October 2025, "LUGA – Luxembourg Urban Garden" will be staging a unique open-air exhibition that promises visitors an extraordinary journey across worlds ranging from the invisible to the visible. Highlights include landscape creations, art exhibitions, temporary structures, and cutting-edge agricultural techniques, spread across four of Luxembourg City's
most emblematic sites, namely, the Alzette valley, the Edouard André Municipal Park, the Pétrusse Valley, and the Kirchberg district.

The exhibition has aroused great interest nationwide and its focus on "green" themes has resonated strongly with the public, proving that the organisers made the right choice in mounting an exhibition in the spirit of partnership with the support of a host of players from the Grand Duchy.

Since its official launch in 2019, the association LUGA 2023 has received a multitude of project ideas in anticipation of the horticultural exhibition "LUGA 2023 – Luxembourg Urban Garden”, which had initially been scheduled to take place in Luxembourg City from May to October 2023.

However, the vagaries of the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the shortage of raw materials and labour, together with the ongoing economic uncertainty, have significantly delayed the organisers' plans.

In the interest of putting on an exhibition that would showcase the Grand Duchy and the Greater Region in their best light, while at the same time opening a green window to the capital and the country as a whole, Romain Schneider, Minister of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development, and Luxembourg City Mayor Lydie Polfer announced that "LUGA 2023 – Luxembourg Urban Garden" would be postponed for two years.

While the organisers have made significant progress in planning the event, drawing on hundreds of ideas collected through a participatory process launched in November 2019, involving players in the agricultural, ecological, cultural and tourism sectors, they decided it would be best to postpone the exhibition to ensure that it will be a resounding success in 2025. Implementing the themes covered at the LUGA exhibition, which are of crucial importance for our plural societies, demands careful preparation and appropriate budgetary support, especially since the preliminary work undertaken so far has already created a spirited dynamic among the partners involved.
