It’s that time of year again when Luxembourg is getting ready for its traditional Easter celebrations.
Taking place every Easter Monday, Éimaischen brings artisan market stalls to the streets as well as folk music and a few Luxembourgish traditions.
One of the main features is the well-known Peckvillercher – small handmade earthenware whistles in the shape of birds.
Traditionally Peckvillercher were exchanged between lovers but today they have gained popularity among all those taking part in the celebrations and local potters experiment with new designs every year.
It will be held on Monday, April 17, from 8am until 6pm.
The stalls will be set up in the streets around the Palace and along Grand Rue up to where it meets Rue des Capucins.
Various folk groups will be singing, dancing and playing music:
– Uucht–La Veillée, La Ronde Beetebuerg, Vallée des Sept Châteaux, from 9.30am until 10am and 10.20am until 10.50am.
– De Kegelaar van Wilryck.
– Lidderuucht Lëtzebuerg at 11am.
– CITYBRASSBAND at 3pm.
