Crafts market

The Éimaischen dates back to at least 1827. One of the most iconic events in Luxembourg's calendar of traditional festivals, it is a craft market that mainly features pottery and ceramics. Stands sell Péckvillercher, which are small bird-shaped terracotta whistles that are only sold during the market. Since their appearance varies each year, people queue up first thing in the morning to get their hands on these coveted collectibles. The bird-like calls of these whistles mingle with the sounds of other folkloric activities and food and drink stands, creating a uniquely charming atmosphere.
