Buergsonnden has long been synonymous with the end of winter. The traditional bonfire lit on this night is supposed to put an end to the cold season and herald in the spring.
The lighting of the Buerg is generally preceded by a torch procession, the Fakelzuch.

Buergbrennen is celebrated in many neighbourhoods, including Beggen, Bonnevoie, Cessange and Cents.
