Embrace the festive feeling
Destination(s): Moselle, Éislek, Guttland, Luxembourg City, Minett, Mullerthal

Enjoy the pre-Christmas season in Luxembourg!

Bright lights and a festive atmosphere await you in Luxembourg City as well as the small towns and villages in the country’s other five regions. Come for a few days or a few weeks–the choice is yours!

Until 7 January 2024, Luxembourg City will be aglow with the traditional Winterlights Festival, when over a thousand lights will sparkle, bringing holiday cheer to all.

This magical atmosphere delights young and old, visitors and residents alike.

Christmas is calling you to Luxembourg! Make a toast with a mug of mulled wine at the Christmas market, savour a “Gromperekichelcher”, our popular potato cakes, buy high-quality toys and other beautiful gifts, and of course enjoy the international atmosphere.

Christmas in Luxembourg City is a beautiful experience beyond comparison. To understand why, just take a stroll around Notre-Dame Cathedral, Place de Paris or Place de la Constitution with the famous “Gëlle Fra” or Golden Lady statue. There are few places where you won’t hear festive music or catch the scent of some seasonal speciality.

Christmas markets, concerts, exhibitions, shows and activities for children fill the streets of the city with life. It is always worth a trip to Luxembourg but even more so at Christmas time!

Winter magic outside of the city

Things tend to be a little quieter outside of the capital, but no less festive. St Nicholas is never far away, delivering gifts and sweets to good children, as is his helper, the much-feared “Houseker”.

Prepare to be surprised by Luxembourg’s Christmas and Winter magic throughout the country. From cheese fondues to après-ski parties, ice skating rinks to a magical night of light, there is so much to see.

Whether on the Moselle river, where St Nicholas arrives by boat, or against the backdrop of the rocky landscape of the Mullerthal region, whether in a castle or a monastery, in the middle of nature or at a lake, in the smallest village in the country or in an urban environment: treat yourself and your loved ones to an unforgettable experience, small gifts, regional and international specialities and return home inspired for the festive season.

Enjoy Christmas in Luxembourg!
