Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union

From 1 July to 31 December 2015, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will occupy the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union for the twelfth time.

The Presidency of the Council is always a major challenge for a member state, but it also presents a fantastic opportunity to participate in the design of European policy and to formulate priorities.

One of the Luxembourg Presidency's priorities is to put 'the citizen at the heart of the European project.' The Luxembourg Presidency will take particular care that the real, direct interest of citizens is better taken into account in all policies of the Union.

This context of 'A Union for citizens' also encompasses the plan to organise for the first time in Luxembourg, in close partnership with the City of Luxembourg, European capital, an event for the general public to celebrate the launch of the Presidency together with citizens.

Launch of a new website for the promotion of business and congress tourism in Luxembourg

The Luxembourg National Tourist Board (ONT) has launched a new website, which highlights the advantages of Luxembourg as business and congress destination, which is an important sector in the Grand Duchy’s tourism development.

Bringing together all the necessary information essential to Luxembourg’s MICE offer, the website is structured and divided into 4 main sections: the infrastructures (hotels, culture and tourist sites, etc.) which are relevant for the organization of a congress, convention or conference; a calendar that highlights different categories of main events that take place during the year (culture, sports, leisure, fairs, etc.) and a list of agencies which offer their services (event agencies, translator services, etc.) to host and organize a MICE event in Luxembourg.

Look up!

New art installation in the Rue Philippe II in Luxembourg City

“Look up” consists of 6,000 metres of interwoven fluorescent string suspended above the heads of pedestrians. Resembling a web of multi-coloured silly string, the curious mesh will be lit at night with ultraviolet spotlights.

“The idea is to bring the public to the pedestrian area,”

The string installation comes a year after “Let the Sun Shine”, when 1,200 multi-coloured umbrellas were suspended above the pedestrian street.

“Look Up” will remain in place until August 16.

Wunderschön! Luxemburg – Kleines Land, großes Herz Unterwegs mit Stefan Pinnow

WDR Fernsehen, Sonntag, 23. November 2014, 20.15 – 21.45 Uhr

Es liegt in der Mitte Europas, ist ungefähr so groß wie das Saarland und hat etwa so viele Einwohner wie Bremen: das Großherzogtum Luxemburg. Stefan Pinnow zeigt, dass der Staat und die Stadt Luxemburg mehr sind als ein Finanzplatz und eine der Schaltzentralen der EU. Begleitet wird er von einem Fernseh-Urgestein: Jean Pütz wuchs in Luxemburg, der Heimat seiner Mutter, auf. Gemeinsam besuchen sie sein (Groß-)Elternhaus in Remich an der Mosel, sehen sich Luxemburg unter Tage an, besuchen die Ausstellung „Family of Man“ in der Abtei von Clervaux und erkunden die Hauptstadt samt „Europameile“ und Kasematten. Stefan Pinnow macht einen Ausflug auf die Burg Vianden, stellt die warmen Quellen in Bad Mondorf vor und gibt Tipps für eine Wanderung ins Müllerthal.

Wiederholung am 30. November um 14.15 Uhr.
