Public pianos

As part of "My Urban Piano Luxembourg", public pianos are set up all over the city: anyone can sit down and play a tune. The aim is to encourage people to gather around the pianos to make and enjoy music together.

The pianos are decorated by youth centres, foyers scolaires, schools and clubs from Luxembourg City.

This project is an interactive event that takes place every year and is modelled on other annual public piano projects staged in capital cities around the world.

2024 programme

To liven up the streets of the city, 19 pianos will be set up all across town from 16 May to 18 June 2024: you'll find them in the city's public squares, parks, and tourist spots, as well as a range of other places.
