Cheap flights to Luxembourg
Luxembourg is one of Central Europe’s smaller countries and, as the saying goes, good things come in small packages. With a mixture of French, German and its own unique Luxembourgian culture and history, this country has plenty to offer visitors of all ages.
With its mix of cultures Luxembourg is a great place to explore the arts and the capital city has a wealth of museums and galleries, including the National Museum of History and Art and the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art.
During the evening Luxembourg shows its more modern face, with several Michelin-starred restaurants and a vibrant nightlife in the many welcoming pubs and bars across the city.
22 - 23 June National Day (Nationalfeierdag)
Celebrations for Gran Duke's birthday cannot be described if you never participated: the huge party starts in town on the eve of the birthday. Massive fireworks, accompanied by national songs, welcome the Duke's guests: you can admire them from the Corniche, the best view spot of the old town. After the fireworks, the city is transformed in a vibrant after-party: food, drinks, music and people in every corner and in every streets until dawn.
If you were not late the night before, you can still enjoy the parade on the 23rd morning : the Gran Duke and his family will be present to all the official events and will later thank the folks from the balcony of the Palais.
From 20 November until the end of December, the lights and animation festival 'Winterlights' takes over the city. There's a big wheel, carousels and an advent circus. At the Christmas Market you can try soups, chocolate, mulled wine, or treat yourself to dishes from around the world. Don't miss the ice skating rink.
