Emaischen Luxembourg

Where? Vieille Ville, L-1111 Luxembourg Traditions, Markets

Traditional celebration of Emmaus. Early on Easter Monday, a motley crowd jostles behind the Palace of the Grand Dukes on the small square of the Fishmarket, to buy one of the small whistling birds ("Péckvillercher") – made in baked clay – which are only sold that day.

The Éimaischen festival dates back to at least 1827. One of the most iconic events in Luxembourg's calendar of traditional festivals, it is a craft market that mainly features pottery and ceramics. Among the most popular items at the market are small bird-shaped terracotta whistles known as Péckvillercher, which are sold only at the Éimaischen. Since their appearance varies each year, people queue up first thing in the morning to get their hands on these coveted collectibles. The bird-like calls of these whistles mingle with the sounds of other folkloric activities, creating a uniquely charming atmosphere.
