RTL and the centre for audiovisual content (CNA) have provided us with another glimpse into the past, this time focusing on the legend of Willibrord, his cultic following in Echternach, as well as the traditional hopping procession.

Despite the fact that the annual hopping procession had to be cancelled for a second year in a row, you can still see some rare images of the event in this week's archive edition.

"Sanctus Willibrordus", a Luxembourgish film from the 1960s, focuses on the legend of the Echternach saint and portrays an early edition of the hopping procession.
