Drive out winter by celebrating Carnival, disguised or not! All over the country, revelers of all ages can participate in any number of large balls, parades, cavalcades and popular celebrations with, as closing event, the prolonged Carnival weekend (Thursday to Tuesday).
And for those who can't stop the carnival madness there: Äschermëttwoch (Ash Wednesday), the traditional end of the carnival period and start of the Faaschtenzäit (Lent) does in no way end the celebrations in Luxembourg, where the 'fifth season' continues until Halleffaaschten (4th Sunday of Lent) or Bretzelsonndeg (pretzel Sunday).
And don't miss ...
Throughout the country
