For a unique Christmas shopping experience you have to visit Luxembourg City. Find out why!
You are struck first by the bustling, festive atmosphere, with the good cheer boosted by the picturesque Christmas markets. Your thoughts will then turn to the extensive range of tempting shops.
If you are looking for clothes, shoes, bags and accessories, dozens of stores offering celebrated designer brands mingle with unique, independent boutiques and international, moderately priced chain stores. For those seeking that extra special gift, there is a wide choice of outlets offering jewellery and watches. There are high end, world-renowned styles, specialist artisan outlets, and shops selling interesting, quirky gifts. You could browse the varied design shops, many of which are like contemporary art museums with their attractive, well crafted displays.
After a few hours hard shopping you’ll want to take stock and refresh yourself with a drink and a snack. There is nothing like the jollity of the Christmas markets (22nd November until 24th December) with their hearty food, mulled wine, open fires and festive music. For a more refined experience there are numerous cafés, patisseries and delicatessens serving high quality produce. Alternatively you can just contemplate the skaters on the city centre ice rink as you plan your next purchases.
A festive spirit is guaranteed during the Winterlights festival, with the Christmas markets, decorations, the festive big wheel and carousels, street animation and seasonal processions. Shops are open on Sundays (Sunday Shopping) in the run-up to the big day. Everything is laid on to ensure you have a perfect Christmas shopping trip.
