Luxembourg City Conservatoire

The Luxembourg City Conservatoire has scheduled several concerts over the Christmas season.

Luxembourg City Tourist Office

During the holiday season, Luxembourg City simply brims with festive cheer. Guided tours are one of the best ways to explore this winter wonderland.

To celebrate Saint Nicholas Day, the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO) has organised a special programme for children ages 6 and over (and their parents). On 4, 5 and 6 December, it will be holding a "City Promenade for kids" event: this guided tour takes place as a treasure hunt, where children get to explore both Luxembourg City and the myths surrounding its legendary denizen, Melusina. At the end, every child gets a "Tiitchen" (goodie bag), the traditional gift distributed by St Nicholas.

In addition to guided tours for kids, the LCTO offers a "City Lights Promenade" walking tour at dusk. Experience Luxembourg City in all its wintry charm, by exploring such splendid points of interest as the Grand Ducal Palace and the Corniche – hailed as the most beautiful balcony in Europe – as well as the enchanting light displays put up all around town as part of the Winterlights festival.
